I did better than last year too. I placed 3rd overall (4th really because they didn’t count their own club member’s results), up ten positions from last year when I did the same race, and placed 13th. So Even though I had ‘forgotten’ my goal I have still been making headway. It feels good to see progress in numbers.
Having things happen is good encouragement for making things happen. Having my parents stay with me was wonderful and their support at the race priceless. I’ve done most of my races on my own, and I don’t mind being lonely but company is nice and enjoying the good connection I have with my parents, gives me a lot more to work with, great ground to work from.
