Goddamn I hate January. This has got to be the suckiest month ever. I haven’t seen the sun in GOD knows how long. The rain comes and goes. It’s up around the 30’s and my backyard is a fucking mud pit. The dogs paws are a pain to keep clean. I can’t stop bitching and complaining. It goes on and on. Be glad you don’t live with me.
I went running today, hoping to find a post in my head for this blog. I started counting down the months till CX. All my friends around me are planning their 2010 racing schedule, and all I can think about is when I get to start training for CX in July.
When I think about road racing, I feel sick in my stomach, though it’s something I vowed to do this year. A couple road races in March, a 40K TT in April, and one of the stupidest ideas I’ve had yet, a 12 hour bike race May 1st. Then a 3 day stage race in June, Tour of Red River Gorge and a half iron distance triathlon in July. Criteriums? Scares me shitless. I have to try one though.
Then CX. I can’t wait for CX. That’s the most fun I have ever had on a bike.
In the meantime, we’re going to be a one car family soon. It’s fine, we’ll deal. I have 4 bikes. I work from home. It’ll be fine. I just hope my car waits until April to die.
Can we please hurry up and get January over with?
With that, I leave you with one of my favorite songs by Big Black. Turn it up.by
