Anybody who races is well aware of the pre-race jitters that one gets. The good ole nervous stomach, necessitating "cutting weight" several times before each race. I think we all have a love hate relationship with our stomachs on race day. Thankfully, after racing for many years, my stomach does pretty well unless it's been a long time since my last race, it's a really big race or a race format that I'm not used to. It's always funny though to be witness to novice racers and their internal/external debate. I'm not going to name names but a certain someone who may or may not live in the Nelson household is considering racing at Weeping Willow this weekend and let's just say the nervous process has begun. "Should I race this weekend or should I stay home? Do you think I can do a whole lap? (bathroom break) What do you think?"
I don't know where he/she will land on his/her decision about this weekend but I sure am enjoying being a witness to the show.
See you on Sunday.
