I found a picture from that race I won in Littleton last weekend. That's me with the red helmet, and puke face. Today Scott and I went and did a little cross practice at Aims Community College here in Greeley. The course there is covered in goatheads, and since Scotty Boy doesn't have very much flat protection, we moved all the barriers out into the soccer field and made a little grass course out there. Man, that grass sucks the energy out of your legs. I don't think we did more than 5 or 6 laps total. It was fun though and Scott showed me how to bunny hop. I'm not very good at it, I think I could probably get over an 8 or 10 inch barrier, but I have a ways to go before I'm getting over any 16 inchers. Scott on the other hand can fly! After cross practice we headed into the Breadboard for some pizza and coffee to warm up since it couldn't have been over 40 degrees. The pizza there is amazing and is slowly getting to be a staple of my diet. They also had some day old pumpkin cheesecake bars which are so good I don't even have words for them.
My grandma had surgery on her knee this week in Sioux Falls. It sounds like she's doing better and I'm glad she could have it in S.F. so my parents could help her out and my grandpa has a place to stay. Anyway, keep her in your thoughts and prayers as I know this is a stressful time.
Lastly, I don't have too much to share, but I have learned a few things so far this week:
#1 Pros ride really fast.
#2 It's hard to make a bike go fast when the chain won't stay on.
#3 Just when I thought it had finally died, the facebook is back, and with a vengeance the way it seems.
#4 The people at the post office can be some of the dumbest people around.
#5 Ray and Caiti are having another one!
#6 I love Justin Williamson.
#7 Racing isn't the same without Dave Towle giving you shout outs.
#8 If I see Danny on race day, I'll win, 100% of the time.
#9 Checking your inbox more often doesn't mean you'll get emails more often.
#10 525,600 minutes? How do you measure a year in the life? How about love?
That's all for today folks. Thanks for checking in. Measure in love, seasons of love.
