§ Each day brings its own challenges;
§ The external obstacles, like mountains and traffic, are unchanging and uncaring;
§ The internal obstacles are tougher: pain, exhaustion, anxiety, confusion, discouragement, irritation, distraction;

§ You must decide how to spend your energy; how to save it; how to recover it;
§ It’s a little dangerous;
§ Tomorrow, you ride again.
