How did you get into bike racing?

My dad taught me to ride a bike upon watching me run after my friends riding their bikes.  From that point on, I was always on my bike and never hung it up when I got my driver’s license.   I met a bike racer in 1986 and he got me interested in racing.  I won my first race, the Massachusetts Bay State Games Citizen’s race and upgraded to Cat 3 two years later.  I took time off from racing for graduate school and to have a family.  After watching the 2005 US Cyclocross Nationals in Providence RI, a muddy/snowy mess of a race, I was hooked on cross and have given it my focus from 2006 to date.
