Pfft...I've never done this!!!

This is where the "challenge yourself" part comes in. Don't go in with the attitude you have to beat someone because there is only one person to beat and that person is you.

Challenge yourself to not become angry or upset when you kill cones or get an OC.
Challenge yourself to stay calm and focused despite what happened in your previous run.
Challenge yourself to improve with experience and the experience of others.

There isn't a person out there that hasn't been in yours or my shoes and has not had a time where they've taken out cones or had an OC. I see the top competitors do it all they time. Sometimes worse things happen too as I and many others witnessed last season and seasons past. No one is immune.

Having fun, learning and the occasional goading and gloating is what it's all about.
