• Sometimes weather doesn’t cooperate

       You might have your race plan strategically laid out, training went well and then you get a glimpse of the weather forecast.



       Not a little rain, but rain the entire day. Ugh.

       Roger Anderson had that exact scenario unfold at the Big Frog 65 last weekend. Rather than  wringing his hands and fretting about something he couldn’t change, we made plans for the possibility of bad weather.

       We had light weight clothing options, warm fluid in the hydration pack and waterproof options like baggie corners over his toes, large latex gloves to cover his hands – if necessary.

       His biggest asset? Attitude.

       Roger decided that he would control the items possible to control, accept the weather as-is and make changes to heart rate and pace goals during the event.

       He had a successful event because he didn’t let less than optimal weather ruin his attitude or his mountain bike race.
