10. Got a training/racing/life/stock tip you would like to share?
KENNETH MORRIS: I have several injuries from a car accident in 1999. I was told I would never run again. After dozens of 5K’s, 10K’s, and marathons I say you are only held back by your desire or lack thereof.
LINDSAY BAYER: Ride each race so that at the end, you don’t look back and have any regrets about not putting in 110% effort. Learn to enjoy suffering.
JULIE KULIECZA: Eat cake and drink booze when you feel like it (not recommended while on the job, but I won’t judge you). Unless it is your job to race week in and week out you should not deny yourself such delicious things.
GUNNAR SHOGREN: Hopefully, you really enjoy riding and racing your bike. If you don’t, then why? Some folks “retire” and walk away from it all. I just don’t like to travel as much that’s all.
STEVE FIFE: Train harder than you race, and the racing will seem easier. Most importantly, have fun.
JAY MORALI: Be safe out there on the road.
NOAH BELL: not really.
JAKE THOMPSON: I’m all for random training sessions, though they don’t happen often for me.
