Are you bored? Something about the word bored just makes me cringe. I don’t believe in boredom. If you are bored, then you must have very little for an imagination. You must not be capable of entertaining yourself, or expanding beyond your boundaries.
I am considering signing up for cooking lessons, dance classes, hike the entire Pacific Crest Trail, and go to Disneyland.
That being said, I am bored. Racing is winding down, far too soon in my opinion, but that is women’s cycling for you. Even though these summer days are filled with warmth and promise, I am easily distracted by other options such as paddle boarding, hiking, and brunches. I want to race. I don’t want to train. I want to play. Is that bored? Maybe, and frankly, I find that embarrassing. I simply cannot be bored. I find myself fidgeting with the possibility of boredom.
What does one do in this situation? Create your own races. Your own play dates. Your own world of endless opportunites. Yes, sometimes that is merely racing yourself, challenging yourself, and keeping your options open.
I call it the August humdrum. What to do?
My entertaining ways to expel late summer blues:
Well, at least I am not August bored anymore….
I am loving Durango!
