Thoughts from Erin: My Summer and When You Know It's Time To DNS


I knew going into this racing season that it was not going to be like the previous ones. I had 6 weddings to attend this year including 3 bridal showers and 2 bachelorettes (I had to pull from the third due to work). Go figure that 3 of those weddings took place in the month of August. Not only that but I got engaged this summer as well, so next year it will be my turn. This summer was very challenging for me mentally and as a result physically as my training and long training sessions took a nose dive. I was exhausted from traveling and the other things in life taking place that all I could rely on was the regular training I could fit in.
