Let the wind blow

All around the wind is howling. Not so long back an evening like this before a race would stress me no end. But this is cross country, this is a different game altogether. I'm not someone that will ever look forward to a cross country race or say something ridiculous like "the muddier the better". Give me a road any day of the week. With times and personal records out the window in these races what difference does a bit of wind, hills, rain or mud matter? These races are all about the bigger picture - Getting stronger and faster on the roads - measured in nothing more than effort, position and pain.
So Weather, do your worst. I'll still sleep soundly tonight.
