Racing has defined my life. I've retired from roadracing motorcycles but am still a huge fan. Tomorrow I'm off early to head to College Station to watch a CMRA 8 hour endurance race at Texas World Speedway. Then on Sunday I'll be heading to Auditorium Shores here in Austin for the Schlotsky's Bun Run 5k. After roadracing I started running to lose weight and manage stress and depression. Of course, simply running wasn't enough so I signed up for a 10k race. I've been running races regularly since then with my biggest accomplishment so far being the completion of the Austin Distance Challenge which included races totalling 101 miles. I now have the distinction of having completed a marathon. I ran it slowly, but I finished.
As I read yesterday: The miracle isn't that I finished, it's that I started.
Have a good weekend wherever you are. My sitemeter has showed visitors from all over the USA, Australia, Germany, Russia, and France. I find that pretty amazing. Feel free to post a comment and say hi.
And remind me to tell you the story of learning Russian at BYU.
