So I signed myself up for the Sea Otter Classic down in Monterey, CA, two weeks from today. It'll be my first official race of the season since… man, since 10 years ago. I did myself in and renewed my USA Cycling license as a Cat 1 racer. Not sure how I'll fair, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to get my ass kicked. However, with all the training I've been doing this past year, especially throughout the winter, I think I'll have a fighting chance of staying somewhere in the middle.
Also, I'll be going down there with no support, as my wife will have just started her new job. My race start is on Friday afternoon, so it'll be a quick drive down, race, and drive back up. I'm nervous just thinking about it.
