End of a Competitive Streak

I've raced in the USD Intramural Bike Race for the past ten years. This year, with the fracture to the arm that still hurts and some sinus issues that are draining (and doing nasty things to my stomach), I have to pass on the race today.

I'm 41 years old. Why do I feel the need to prove myself to kids that could be MY kids? Is it that, or do I just like to show them that the old guy still has something in the tank?

Next year boys....be ready....I'll be back.
