Flipping The Switch....

The above pic is from Australia this last winter and is of our group after riding up to the summit at Falls Creek.
Those of you that are closest with me, know that I have been going through a bit of a "funk" over the last month. Most of it came from lacking a little direction in both life and racing. I think that everyone goes through periods like this, especially if you are an athlete...that is why it is so important to surround yourself with good friends who can help keep you positive and have a great life outside of sport. That is exactly where I put my focus over the last 5 weeks, hoping that it would help me find my mojo again. What do you know....it worked.
Many people, including myself, talk about the mind-body connection in sport....in order to perform at your peak physically, you have to be in a good spot mentally.
I am now in Tucson, Arizona after briefly stopping in Boulder for a few days. Needless to say, I have had a lot of time to think through things in the soccer-mom minivan. A few days ago, on my final day of driving, I finally came to feel good about my plan for the coming year....and beyond. I believe in the plan and am excited about it...these are two things that you can't force, they are either there or they are not. Something that everyone can take from this is to not settle on something that you aren't sure about...keep searching, talking to those that matter and the answer will come to you...when it does, you will know it.
Alright, that is all for my life philosophy lesson today, I need to go ride.
BTW - If you are ever in Tucson, the Oro Valley area is fantastic. There is a pool and track side by side, with great riding as well. If you are interested, the season pool pass is $20 and it is one of the nicest pools I have experienced.
Have a great day,
