So i guess i'm doing the first 2 Norba's this year. I have no clue what to think. Could go well or not. Only catch is i have not clue what going well will be nor do i have any clue what a bad day will be like. I'm kinda starting over. Wish me luck? I always used to say i don't need luck i make my own. That was a different Tyler, but maybe this one is better and stronger and don't need no luck anyway. One thing i have found out about racing as i have grown OLD is. That there is no going into a race hope'in to do well. There is no hope, you have either done the work or not. You cant Hope. Its not like its 50/50 and maybe you win maybe your last. Most of the time you finish were you should and that's how fit you are! Kind of a bummer for guys like me who have a list of excuses a mile long. You never really know till you risk it all once again.




I think this cartoon is going to some up my first weekend back racing.

Mean Girls

So Mean Girls is on TV. Pretty crappy movie if you ask me but it made me think about little Ms. Lohan. I think she forgot the moral of the story. That girl has a brain like a sieve. Looks like she will forever be a "plastic".

P.S. All the news of late has been about how fucking stupid people are. Has it always been this way?

I wish i was a hooker...

Everyone gets it in Belgium

Not sure why everyone get's it in Belgium, but its great. Check out this AD for a local paper, everyone is getting read for the Tour of Flanders.

Not sure if Cancellara Can get his fat ass up those steep climbs but if he does he will ne hard to beat. Steegmans is a fatboy too. i know he will be working hard for Boonen but i dont think Boonen has what it take this year. He's missing that spark, i don't know. It steegmans gets his chance i cant see im losing.

My Picks for Sanremo:

Cancellara can get away!
Oscar Freire Gomez
Thor Hushovd
Filippo Pozzato
Alessandro Ballan
*Luis León Sánchez will try and get away just like Paris-nice.

My Picks for Flanders(long list)

Philippe Gilbert
Nick Nuyens
Alessandro Ballan
Tom Boonen?
Fabian Cancellara?
Thor Hushovd? He's got great form, and could make it to the finish in the lead group?
Stijn Devolder
Ryder Hesjedal

"cry me a river"

Just read on Molly Camron's site she came down with the same flu bug. It just will not go always. I still feel a little tired, still cough a bit while on the bike and running. All i want to do is train! I'm just starting to feel like myself again, and i still have alot of work to do while here in San Diego. As i mentioned before there is a good chance i could be moving back to the East Coast. I'm looking into taking a job at Targetraining in Westport Ct. There a top notice training outfit based around cycling, Running and Triathlon. Targetraining is also the home of my cousin Dom Gillen. It would be a great to be able to push each other, and get to that next level we have both dreamt about for so long. With the support that targetraining can bring and the support we can give each other i think we can get it done.
Keep and eye out more news to come!

credi in lei

believe in yourself


If you didnt know already the flu sucks! Every time i get the flu its all most like i have never had it. That this is the first time i have felt this bad. Not sure why that is but after its gone it seems like nothing untill it comes again. It reminds me of exams. God knows the last time I took an exam. So i'm out of the woods with the flu, still a bit of a cough. I hate running and coughing it always feels like i'm going to pop and EYE out. That and it must look like i have a bit of the torret* every time I cough I skip, jump, trip, and or hop down the road. Not cool! I know you dont ever really look cool when your running. Looking less cool then you already do is super Lame!

I might be moving back to the east coast. Trying to come up with reasons not to make the leap and i'm only on #2. I have been working on said list for quite some time. I just need to iron out the details and get back to you with the conclusion.

Back to getting fit, thank god. Next week should be the first week of quick stuff.


* can't spell

Big weekend

I'm so stoked with the way this week and weekend went for me. Its been a while since i have felt good while training. I had a few weeks last year where i felt good while in Boulder and then back on the east coast. still there is nothing like your first big week of training to get you head and body ready for the fun stuff. This week i had 26 hours of training time. I know its on that much but its been a real long time since i have done anything like this. The week was lced with a 4 hour ride and hour run on Sat. Then a long run of 1.45 on Sunday. I'm starting to feel like a real athlete again, and that's so nice. I think i was able to get in about 17 miles today. I took off with the idea that i would run from my place and around mission bay. I didn't really know what to think. I made it to the opposite side of the bay right at the half way point. I thought ok I'm all in, no more out and back shit. So I keep it going. It turns out that i can make it around the bay no problem . It was a great run. First time I have said that in years. Its also the longest run i have done since the "stick in the leg" few years back.

My sister is in town tomorrow lots of fun I HOPE. She can be a handful.
