I've attached a finished video of what we worked on for the last 5 weeks of class. Yes, 5 weeks. Like I said before "I might not like playing video games but I have a new found respect for the peeps that spend so much time making them so real". We had to model a building on campus, this is Rogers-Stout.
So I end this semester with 2 A's and 2 B's. I used to be really anal about getting all A's but since I've relaxed my stance on that idea my stress level has been lowered significantly. I'm happy sitting with a 3.46 GPA.
Why do I have a tie on and all dressed up? Well, I applied for an internship position at a local company to film their products for their website. The interview went extremely well but there is something about it that seems a little off. I can't put my finger on it but we'll see.
My training goal for the year was satisfied although it was a broad one; finish 45 minute races & get faster! I managed to come from a slow start and pick off a good many people in my masters class. I've been teased about my race tactics but the way I see it I'm not going to beat those pro1/2 racers so why leave the line acting like I can? Attack from the back was my motto....... it worked for me! The final results are YET to be posted in the MSG series but with only one, the final, race to be tallied in I'm setting a respectable 14th of 70 in Masters 45+ and 3rd of 20 in MTB. I haven't raced enough NCCX to put a dent in results there but those were used a training races. I'm happy that I could finish 45 minute motos without my back locking up like last year. I wish I could have been fit enough to race two races each day with the same efforts given as the first day. I'm workin' on that for next year. I may attempt SS again.
Where to now? We have 3 weeks before we leave for Madison, Wi CX nats. There are only two races left around here and they are in NC, Raleigh and Fayetteville. That's a good 4-5hr drive but we need something to keep us going. Road trippin' for 10 days sounds fun don't ya think?
I'm usually not a big resolutions kinda guy guy but this year may be different. My choices with women haven't been the best of late so I may throw a little personal reconstruction in with the bike stuff this new year. Looks like "The Rules" may have to be permanently re-instated.....
