2010 Season Wrap-Up

When thinking about your accomplishments in fitness this season:

-What one word describes your 2010 season? Involvement - because this year I was involved in a lot, but didn't accomplish any racing and didn't hit the goal of 4k on the mileage, but I did work on it.

-Does it match what you said last December in anticipation of this year?No! I participated in a Tour, a Metric 100, and attempted a 100.

-What one word comes to mind when you think about your 2011 season? Endurathon - I still look forward to working on a randonée for the first time. The ones I've looked into have not panned out and the ones left would require some travel within the state. Not a problem! (FYI-Paris-Roubaix started out as a randonée).

-Did you race any new distance this year or try any new type of racing or sport? No, I attended some races to see what my team members were doing. If my times hadn't tanked in Sep I would have raced in Gruene in October. Both bikes are set up reasonably that a crit/road race or another Time Trial is not out of the question for 2011.

-What was your greatest thrill or joy this year from training or racing? Big tours such as the Wildflower and the Tour de Gruene.

-What was your biggest disappointment this year from training or racing? Not training regularly during the week, but with the stresses of family committments and work kept me busy.

-What was your favorite race in 2010? Favorite event was the Wildflower and the Bruehler Memorial Ride This was one of those events when I felt like part of the racing team because some of the racers also did the event!

-How important was the social aspect of your sport in 2010? Extremely! I know I'm a social being and enjoy the social aspect of everything that we do.

-If you had to name three people that made a difference in your training this year who would they be? Gabe Garcia for training insight, Luis Leal for the feeling of belonging in a club and Filip Vanacht for inspiration!
