Race a month
#41
Thanks.
The Betteshanger races were good fun, but (probably) needless to say I didn't participate in the last one as it was the very next day afer the Big Dog.

Other one time forum members did both however (with respectable results in both).

Not sure what to do for September. During my last lap of the Big Dog was considering jacking it all in :lol:

Sounds like you had a mare for sure, but don't give up, you're so close now & you've made it thru the awful winter months and a scorchio summer!

Hope whatever you had is gone & you're feeling healthy again dude, and trust the bike has survived all these mad efforts without too many mechanicals Big Grin

The heat over the past month hasn't been great for motivation. Earlier in the year was expecting to be mega fit about but almost feel like it's gone the other way. Last night I scraped entry for the last Mud Sweat & Gears of the season at Langdon Hills Essex - without realising there was just 5 minutes until it closed - dangerously close to not racing at all in September! Feeling tired this week but a 1.5 hour race should be manageable. Big Grin

That didn't go according to plan. Spent rather a long time sat on the bridge slip road off the M2 queing for the Dartford tunnel. Nightmare traffic. Only one tunnel open. Went to Hadleigh Park instead as too late for race.

Yeah did enjoy Hadleigh. I've failed my race a month thing. A sleepless night before a race last month meant I missed another race. Felt ok about it until walking out of supermarket and realized I was actually quite gutted to miss it. Expecting a mini-sirromj some time next month so racing has dropped down the list of priorities!

I managed 8 months out of 12, and 3 months since I last did one. Miss it, quite addictive!

You did damn well mate, and you have the very best reason in the world too with a mini-me arriving.
