Saturday was the sprint race. It was not exactly a glitch free day. This time it came in the form of missing my start. Two of the three times that I've made that mistake have been in Jericho. The missed start amounted to about 10 too 15 seconds. The energy going into the race was there, but the extra gear wasn't. So the ski speed was decent, but not at optimum level. It could have been the heat. It could have been the time of year. It could have been a dozen other variables. The 60% shooting didn't help my cause either. There was some feeling of let down after such a lack luster race, but after all these years getting bent out of shape over a one day doesn't accomplish much. Rehydrating, breaking the race down, taking a nap, and simply relaxing does help.
