Redemption Songs

Another day, another lesson....



Today's adventure was a far cry from yesterday's demoralizing march. I guess things were just clicking on all cylinders. When the dust settled, I had won my first race as a professional, the opening time trial to the Nova Desert Classic. It reminded me that there is always tomorrow and not to get too hung up on one day's mistakes. Live and Learn.

the magnet on my fridge says:
some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next.
delicious ambiguity....

congrats nick!

nick you have worked so hard and all of us who race know the pain of cycling. its a brutal sport for such little reward. so when you're able to step upon the podium as an offical pro and be the winner its like stepping on top of the world. we wish we could live the life. congrats.
