Getting ready

Not only is this week Christmas. Its my last week home and in CT. Tomorrow is my last day of work in Westport at Targetraining. I'm not going to lie and say I love work, Who does? My time at Target was not only a challenge to me, but to my co-workers as well. I had alot going on in my head and alot of challenges thrown my way. I'm not going to make excuses i could have handeled myself better and at times I could have chosen not to let things get in my way. I guess its all part of life and it's little lessons along the way.

So, now I'm off to Durango for a fresh start. A fresh look at what I want to accomplish with my athletics and overall well being. I'm getting ready for a fantastic and hard fought Journey to the top. I'm very thankful for the gifts of friendship, love, and athletic prowiss. My friends and loves for pushing me in the right direction and not letting me give in. It may not seem like I'm the strongest person out there to an outsider looking in at my career. I beg to differ, as i'm sure most of my friends and loved ones would agree. I have chosen to put my heart, passion, and mind to work on other things less out in the open. For all of that i sometimes look back and think i have nothing to show for my strength, but this is my time to shine, and prove myself to my number one critic, MYSELF.

I want to look to the future and invite everyone, friend or fow, to look with me as i put my passion and heart on the line once again in the pursuit of happiness and get on the road toward winning.

More snow and more trainer riding!

60min. chillin on my road bike in my sidi T2's

Lars boom won the Cyclocross World Cup this morning. Once again i think he is going to be the guy to beat come Worlds. Maybe Niels Albert will be back? I wonder if he can find form before the end of this season. He was on Fire the first few weeks.

Ra Ra


60 min. trainer ride

Indoors today due to the 8 inches of fresh Colorado style powder out my front door.

I havent had much to say about cross this fall. I get all bent out of shape about it when i'm not on form or even going to races. I need to get over myself and get out the door and do what I love.

I think cross is going through some growing pains. Super large fields, crazy drunk hecklers, and the crazy coast to coast chase for UCI points. Speaking of hecklers the whole Page/Richard sachs thing sounded like the wrong way to end the season. Not to mention the Myerson/Baker punch up.

2 miles easy in my Newtons
Near death in the snow and cold

Today i set out to run 4 miles nice and easy. It began to snow as i was walking out my door. It wasnt just snow it was flippin "puking". I set out in my newton shoes again today. I have about 30 runs in them and i really like them. I found out rather quickly that the Newton Suck Ass in the snow. I only ended up running 2 miles, and nearly had to walk home as i'm no good a ice skating.

WTF Newton!

Come out with a trail shoe or somthing that has a little bit of grip.

I think I'm going to have a Love/Hate relationship with these flippin shoes.
