It's been a helluva 'ride', literally, mostly out of control with my bike in the driver's seat. Without sounding absolutely cliché, I would not know what to do with myself without Coach Richard La China. I mean, I am, of course, naturally awesome to begin with. But hiring a cycling coach means a lot more than buying a personalized training plan. I need the accountability and objectivity that no amount of personal education or scientific insight can provide. I've tried, even with a BS in Exercise Science, I can't have a job and keep up with all the data and gobbledegook feedback to plan my next workout. Plus I can rationalize like it's no one's business - walked into a spiderweb, cardio is done for the day! And, let's face it, I'm naturally a goofball and inherantly a lazy-ass. I'd watch Redbull TV all the live-long day if I didn't have to report my workout to someone. I'll always have a coach, even if it means giving up my Range Rover. Ok, that's a lie, but I'd for sure give up my XC bike if needed.  ~Paula Evenson
