Mike, Peter and I were all really happy with the above performances today. If you competed today and didn’t have the performance you were hoping for, there’s only one thing to do: Get back on the horse and keep on ridin’!!! With many of you, your training numbers are showing us you are capable of something big when it all comes together. Keep on trying–it WILL happen.
I’ll see those of you who competed at EITHER Leander or CIRC on Tuesday. I’ll see all others for 2K tests on Monday at 6:30.
