Can't resist Molly. Fiance vs. Fiancee. Because Nicole Duke is female, the correct spelling should be fiancee.

Molly,

You sound tough as nails. I thought I'd comment from the medical side. It sounds like you have had elevated levels of creatine kinase in your blood (CK or CPK). This is a muscle enzyme that should be inside your muscle cells. If it is found in the blood in high levels, it is evidence of muscle breakdown (muscle cells have broken and spilled their contents into the blood), not of overproduction. Elevated levels can be seen after vigorous exercise, but if you have high levels even during a period of rest, a thorough evaluation for the cause is worthwhile.

Wow, that is a very insightful post. I think most racers can identify with the idea you discussed. I have been looking for a way to change my focus at races, to be less obsessed with placings, essentially to be more motivated by internal rather than external validation. I'm going to use your fun quotient! Thanks.
