Tip of the Month


Wrapping up the year:  Looking back at our successes and failures

December is a great time for adventure racers. We can reflect on the year’s accomplishments, learn from our mistakes and look forward to a new season ahead. Race by race, season by season we learn what works and what doesn’t. Take the time to make notes on the season. Compare notes on your goals and outcomes. Where did you succeed and or fail. What can you improve? Take an inventory of skills learned and weaknesses that are holding back the team. Use this inventory to develop goals for your next season. Focus on the weak areas of the team. There are many facets to a strong adventure racing team and they continually change from race to race. A perfect race is rare in the sport but showing with a strong and sound foundation ups your odds for reaching the finish…

Happy Trails!
