Crazy statistic

Just finished my book. Here is a pretty crazy statistic: The federal government now pays more in interest on its debt than it does for education, health care and homeland security combined. Crazy.

Maxed Out

No, I’m not referring to my ride today (although Dusty and Ben took turns making me suffer), I am referring to the book I am reading. It is called “Maxed Out” and it…  |  READ »

Wild Mushroom Tamales

Good Hard Day

Got in a good hard ride today. I was pretty tired from the last few days, but I still felt strong, so that was good. Ben, Dusty, Waldek and I headed up Rist,…  |  READ »

One of Those Rides…

Today was one of those rides where you keep looking down at your bike computer and saying “That’s it? That’s all the speed/watts/heart rate I can muster?” Some days you have the snap,…  |  READ »

Always Take Two Tubes

Yes, that is my sage advice for today. Always take two tubes. And your cell phone. Today’s ride started out really well- it was pretty warm out, and I was feeling good. About…  |  READ »

The LFD Ride

Ahhh, the LFD ride, my favorite. I haven’t really written much about the specifics of my training plan (don’t want to get too boring), but I think that Ben has a really great…  |  READ »

Easy Day Today

Yesterday’s ride was pretty brutal, so instead of battling the wind today Ben and I went for a run on Blue Sky. There was still quite a bit of snow, but it’s going…  |  READ »

Bitter Freezing Cold

Yes, that’s right. It was most certainly not the 40 degrees that “Accuweather” was predicting. The ride started out alright, and we headed up Rist Canyon at a pretty good clip. There was…  |  READ »

Not the Rollers

It was cold this morning, but I was going to ride outside no matter what- I just didn’t have the motivation to sit on the rollers today. By the time I got out…  |  READ »

Sun…at least

At least the sun was out today- even if it was pretty darn cold. There is still some snow, but it’s supposed to warm up, so that’s good. Went for a nice easy…  |  READ »

Back in The Saddle

The MTB saddle, that is. Today we rode down to Bobcat Ridge. It was so nice to be on the dirt! The trails were almost all clear and dry (thanks Jeff for giving…  |  READ »
