The reason I named the site everyday racer was simply because I have found that to have any chance at competing you need to be a racer everyday, not just on race day. The cool thing is that doesn’t mean you have to live like a pro cyclist. You can have a full time job, a family, and race. What you can’t have is the typical American suburban, couch potato life. Which is OK, you wouldn’t be racing if you wanted that, right? Living everyday like a racer means saying no the 4th drink at the company party, eating responsibly, planning your life so that being an athlete is part of it, and taking the time to care about the details.
