Balancing life is clearly one of the hardest things to deal with.  I can’t remember a time since I have had kids where it wasn’t a sacrifice of something to do the other thing.  Helping the wife dig rocks in the garden hours before a race, surely making it pointless to race at all.  Taking a day of work, not to travel to a race, but just to hang out with the family.  Travelling for work and not riding or getting the chance to talk with the kids, but working 24 hours a day all week. Racing all day on a Saturday instead of playing in the yard with the kids.  It is endless.  I wish I had an answer.  The one thing I do know is that I am better a work, at being a parent, and being a husband when I can fit in training/racing.  Luckily I feel like I am finally hitting my stride at how to chase the demons out on the bike so that I am relatively sane the rest of the time without having to be on the bike too much.  That is this week, next week who knows.  One thing is for sure, I don’t get to watch too much TV.  That may be a good thing.
