wish me luck... give me strength

the morning has come
last night was fun
maybe too much fun for the night before a race
my head hurts
hopefully this next cup of coffee will set things right

time to walk the dogs
time to load up the car
time to approach my demons
time to race

headed off to western maryland for a mountain bike race
the anxiety is building
just got to ride my own race
can not let myself get wrapped up in the health and fitness of the riders around me
let them go
no one can carry my up those hills but me

maybe I had one too many bourbon and ginger
maybe I had two too many bourbon and gingers

I am excited to get on the bike
the time leading up to the start line tends not to be a pleasure
too much anxiety
