Good News

     Well the death marches that I have been going on 4 times a week with Girts is paying off.  I'm actually towing around about 12 less pounds than I was 3 weeks ago!  Hopefully I have the motor to go a little faster now that I am losing some pounds.  
      In other news, I can't wait for cross season to start this year, (only a month and half!)  Problem is I have to start school again soon, and since I will be in the fire academy, it is going to be nothing short of a workout every day that I do it.  Hopefully it won't hurt my riding too much.   Soon to come I will put some pictures up of the rig that I will be riding for cross this year, with some new and improved parts!  Thanks for checking in.

Lazy on the bloggin

     Well my blog has been nothing short of lame for the better part of a month.  There is much to talk about.  Last time I blogged I had been just working and starting up my training again, and I have done that.  My fellow co-worker Girts, or as I like to call him, "the latvian nightmare," has finally lit a fire under me and we have both been logging in a lot of chamois time.  We have been riding a loop up to Conifer about 4 times a week before work starting at about 6:30 AM.  It was rough at first but I think I'm getting used to it, and its been totally worth it.  With all the climbing that is involved in the ride I am getting better all the time and its feeling great.  I can't wait to pin on a number soon and try and make something happen.
     In other news I had one of the best vacations in a long time, on the 4th of July weekend in Grand Lake.  My parents rented a cabin on a private lake right on the borders of Rocky Mtn. National Park, and got a little R&R.  I spent the majority of my time on the boat fishing and drinking beer with friends and family.  We also got to watch an awesome fireworks display on the 4th when we were literally right on the lake.  
      Other than that I signed up for the Fire Academy at RRCC for this fall, which should be nothing short of interesting.  Only a month and a half until cross!  I can't wait!   More later because my computer is running out of batteries.

Check out the new songs as well.
