Re: [RC] Decline of entries in 100 milers - Susan Young Casey


I would be interested in knowing how many of my
fellow RideCampers are
self-employed and how many hold down regular day
jobs. And if you do hold
down day jobs, how do you get away from work to
travel to a ride? 

I teach full time from 7:30 till 4:00 (or later during
this time of year) then go to my husband's medical
practice and do billing etc. till...who knows!  I
blame HIM for making me gain all this weight!

I don't have the deadlines you do and once Blake's
practice takes off, I'll have more time to do what I
want.  As for now, Charlie already has a base and it
doesn't take much to keep him fit.  Poor 20 year-old
Bingo gets yanked out of the pasture and foxhunted at
neck-break speeds over all kinds of junk that'd make
the average endurance rider cringe (I just close my
eyes).  Topper, my up and coming, will need some
conditioning which is why I've scheduled his rides the
end of the season.

I want to know when life took over my conditioning and
competition time?  That's NOT fair!  Tom Sites is
probably the last of the die-hards.  Ride on Tom...I'm
right behind ya!

OH...Tom's in the calendar.  Neat little story.  When
I started endurance in the 80's, ALL the men were as
cute as Tom or they were OLD and cute.  Now...jeeze! 
I don't even want to talk about it.  I'm going riding
with Bob and Julie!!
