A month has passed since the World Championships and the body is only now starting to return to normal. In that time I have had two races: the Gravity (fun) and the final round of [...]

Someone asked me last week at a Worlds Celebration Dinner what I attributed my result to. I replied with some half-thought through answer about having been well prepared, a bit of luck, etc. My answer was true, but it wasn’t exactly insightful.
