It’s The Little Things

It is easy to forget about the little things that make a big difference in the grand scheme of things:

  • Riding and not worrying about watts.
  • A friendly chat with a stranger in line at the ATM machine on a busy Saturday afternoon at the grocery store.
  • Friends coming together to help out someone in a tough time.
  • Listening to voicemail from wee little Henry (my 2.5 year old nephew) – that kid has stolen my heart.
  • Seeing Marc’s face light up when he talks about his young team mates.
  • Time to sit and read.
  • Peanut butter.
  • Smiles and laughter.
  • Riding with a young speedster and enjoying a coffee shop stop on a hot Saturday day.

At first glance it might seem that this post is not related to bike racing or training but if you look between the lines – you just might see that these little things really do make a big difference in how you ride your bike. We all find inspiration and courage in different ways and places. Count yourself lucky if you can put together a list of “your little things”.
