crazy love

VB put it so perfectly..."cross is like abusive relationship love"

i'm already telling myself it'll be better next time, it won't hurt so much, i'll be stronger, i won't let it get to me... I CAN TAKE IT!


i'm trying not to notice all the bruises...

there's always the mystery bruises that you can't figure out where they came from

but there is one on my right low back (right over the sacroiliac area for you anatomic types) that i get from my pedal when i shoulder my bike that never goes away

XB -- try softer pedals.....

Erika, what are you beating yourself up about? You're pretty incredible out there. Have fun with it and you'll keep improving all the time.

There are so many different elements to cross -- that's what keeps me coming back week after week. I can always improve something -- my runs, my climbs, my flat bumpy power, my mounts, my dismounts, so many different things. It's obsessive.

And don't forget to smile....at least when it's over.

cross is the most retarded sport out there.
it really is, if you think about it a bit.
So I just stop thinking.

everytime i try to explain what cx is to a non-bike racer, i just end up stopping mid-description, totally flabbergasted at how stupid what i am saying sounds
