Of the 19 show days that I have completed, my absolute worst scores have come from the two Bakersfield shows that I've entered. What gives? Seriously. What is it? I don't feel especially nervous. If you've been reading this blog long enough you've probably realized that I don't really care what people think about me. Well, within reason of course. What I mean is that I do what I want, and I don't need the approval of my fellow riders.
So is it just bad luck, bad timing, bad riding? What?!
Whew ... deep breath. I am as ready as I can be: I know the tests; Speedy is working well; and the venue is familiar and comfortable. The show is tomorrow, and I ride early. As in first. I go at 8:00 a.m. and again at 8:30. I'm ready to kick some butt! (I just hope it's not mine!)
But before I go... Have you scrolled down, over there on the right, to check out the Stuff I'm Working On? No added pressure or anything, but this is a CDS/USDF/USEF rated show which means I could conceivably fill in two of the missing scores. I'm just saying'!
