Michael Weiss on racing so much late in the season:
“A lot of us trained for Kona, traveled to Kona, tapered for Kona and then we had disappointment. I think it’s more of a mental thing to have to race after a whole race season. You have to be fresh and be hungry for racing. After that disappointment in Kona where I dropped out on the run, I won Xterra Worlds three weeks ago. I figured that there is still something left both physically and mentally. So I decided to give it another shot at Arizona.”
