It’s late summer and it’s like I’m living in a dream. I’ve logged long hours on the bike tracing the contours of the Pioneer Valley. I am structuring my days to maximize the benefits of training. The pattern is wake, run, ride, eat, nap, cook, sleep, laundry laundry laundry!, wash bike, sleep more. I’m watching the cornfields grow taller each day and am enjoying the start of dahlia season.
The cx racing season is just around the corner. It will surely be fun, but for now I am living out this moment to the fullest. It’s an absolute privilege to have a tired and achey body, only to sleep a full night, and wake up for more. This is my favorite season, my favorite mode, my favorite place.
