I forgot.

Hey everyone. Sorry, I kinda forgot I had this website for a while there. I took a week off after Gila, went to nationals with the DU team, came home, trained hard for a week and did a pair of crits last weekend.

North Boulder Park Crit was an excellent crit course with 6 90 degree corners stuffed into a .7 mile lap with narrow roads and tight technical sections. I made the front group and finished 19th out of 21 finishers. Not so hot, but considering there were over 80 starters, I was please with myself. I did manage to crash myself, but luckily didn't take anyone else with me. I took a little flyer with a lap and a half to go, thinking they might let a nobody dangle for just long enough to sneak away since the race winning break of 2 was already gone, but no dice. The pack rolled right on by and I had nothing in the sprint.

Here I am picking my bike up off the pavement after my little mishap.



Saturday night was a ton of fun celebrating a successful season with the DU team, although it put a kink in my plans for a strong finish at the Coal Miners Classic Crit in Louisville. 50 minutes into the race I decided I was done. I never like DNF's but they happen sometimes I guess.

This coming weekend is Iron Horse in Durango. My parents are coming out to watch and hang out which will be awesome. I love the courses down there so it should be a fun weekend. I'm afraid there are going to be like 10 guys in the Pro 1,2 road race since pre-registration sold out. We'll see when we get there I guess. I luckily landed a spot through a guy that I coach, otherwise it would have been a long trip for a crit. It's time to start getting ready for work this afternoon. Thanks for checking in.

I'm sure you've already heard, but The Office star Jenna Fischer stumbled while celebrating the series' renewal and fractured four vertebrae.

Happily, The Office has wrapped for the season so her injury won't hamper her role as Pam Beesly

Good luck in durango this weekend. I'm sure that the ride down there will be a barrel of laughs with your wounded ass. You may want to pre medicate yourself.
