I wanted to share my new mantra for 2012. Seems the honey badger has gotten a lot of publicity this past year. For good cause, the honey badger is badass. Don't believe me, check out the footage right here: Honey badger
Who gets bit by a poisonous cobra 3 times and takes a nap only to wake up and make a meal of said snake? The honey badger is tenacious and just don't care. Nothing gets in the way of his goals.
So, I have decided to take some lessons from the honey badger. Some examples: Oh it's raining and you don't want to ride - honey badger don't care, get out there slacker your not gonna melt. Intervals are just too hard - honey badger don't care, suck it up and get it done princess. I can't push myself any harder - honey badger don't care, put it down like you got a pair. Got the idea yet? I actually found myself chanting "honey badger don't care" while riding the road bike this morning in the cold, wet, fog. Hopefully there weren't any bystanders listening in - as I had my ipod cranking i was probably chanting loudly. Nuttier than a fruitcake much? If you hear me saying this during a race just move over cause I'm getting ready to stand on it and you know what the honey badger does when you get in his way, don't you?
