You guys, I’m having a really hard time letting go of today. I want so badly to
do well in our local races. Because local riders kind of write me off as not real competition. I really want to prove them wrong. And my competitive streak runs a mile wide and a mile deep. I just…today is really hard to let go of. It wasn’t my fault. There was nothing else I could have done. My (not so) inner control freak can’t handle that. And I can’t handle that I wasn’t on the podium. I deserved it. Damn.
