Race #6: Brambleton Town Center Grand Prix
Race #6 was my best race so far....
I finished last, but this time I felt and rode stronger mainly because I have been done some hard core training. (Trust the Training!)
We got to the starting line, the whistle was blown, and we took off.
I was feeling great, but eventually got dropped by the pack, and I really could not figure out why....
Well, after the race, a lady and man from a different team came up to me and gave me some much needed advice and encouragement. They said that I was in the wrong gear; I need to stay in the drops more, and they also stated that they had been watching me for awhile, and that I was much stronger. (Grateful!)
After this advice and encouragement, I am soooo ready for my training this week.....
From this race I learned to stop looking to people for encouragement and advice who just aren't going to give it and to always have an open heart for learning, because we never know who God is going to use in order to help us grow.
Happy Monday, and Keep Learning!!!
