Why is there no "like" button on blogs. Great post Joel!


Wow, what an appropriate blog for me Joe, thanks. I read this last Tuesday and then made the mistake of riding a race with a "redemption mentality".

Had a bad race the week before in a Tuesday night series (wasn't able to bridge up to the winning break from the field). Last Tuesday I told myself I wouldn't miss the break no matter what, I was going to redeem myself!!! Went into that race feeling great, but was way too aggressive covering every move. In the end I had no lo legs left for the final sprint and finished last in the pack. Guess I had to learn the hard way! Thanks for the post.
