My Belief System | Perturbation

In the Dark before the dawn of each day I get another opportunity be the best I can be in my life. Cycling is the vehicle I have chosen to leverage that and while I’m on the bike I feel unbeatable. Perturbation is a mathematical term to apply pressure and the effects of what happens when that pressure is applied. This is the best term I have found to best describe a cycling race, the harder the race is and the more pressure I feel the more I want to push myself. I believe that this is where an athlete is truly defined and to be able push past these points, will allow you to succeed in anything you put your mind to. All my goals and dreams will be achieved.
