Days of the week are a mystery to me. Our lives don’t revolve around a standard work week, so when people complain about Mondays, I’m usually like “whoohoo, it’s a travel day today!”
When folks say “TGIF”, I’m like “WHOOHOO, it’s almost Race Day!” I love race days!
Today is bittersweet, it’s a Monday, the last Monday before the last race of the year. This time of year, my mind is always ramped up with “Now, What?” It’s not that we don’t have plans for the next few months, but this always feels like the end. And I hate endings.
The race season has been accomplished, busy, challenging, dreamlike, exhausting, finished, genius, honest, inspired, joblike, kinetic, loved, magical, natural, obsessive, passionate, quiet, rewarding, successful, treasured, unique, victorious, winsome, yet, oh so zectacular! (I ran out of ideas for letters :-) I am a huge fan of our racers, rockcrawlers, marketing partners, spectators and staff. Without each and everyone of you, our lives would be less fullfulling. Thank you for all you do for us, for supporting our dreams.
Rich has a new pitch when someone asks him what he does, he says he provides an adrenalin filled event for competitors in rock sports that want to have fun and enjoy their lives. What do you think? Is that an accurate description? I know it’s only Monday, but I’m already looking forward to Thank God It’s Friday…race day cometh!
