After some thought and consideration, I’ve decided to sell my entry for the Lumberjack 100 this year. I realized that I had already started to stress myself over it. Anytime I thought about riding, I was concerned that I got a good “training ride” in, with lots of miles and hours, because LJ is right around the corner. Same whenever I thought about doing work around the house/yard instead of riding. The need to train for it was starting to sap the fun out of any riding I was doing. When it comes down to having to choose between training rides and fun rides/house stuff, I decided I didn’t want to keep making that decision. So, I’ve made it for the season.
I think it was the right thing to do, because after I decided, I headed out to Stony to just bounce around with some friends. Not having to think about getting miles in was a great weight off my shoulders, and I had the first really fun ride of the season. I think I made the right decision.
