Looking back on the 2014 season, I think I competed better than I ever have. I tinkered with my racing strategy in every way possible (i.e. leading races, middle of the back, back of the pack).
I think trying all of these tactics have helped me to become a better racer, and I no longer fear making mistakes in races. That is a fear I believe many athletes have ---- making mistakes. Through making several mistakes in my races this year, I believe I learned so much about myself as an athlete. This growth I have made will definitely show up in my future training and competition!!
