In other unexciting news.

The next person to visit this site will be our 20,000th guest and will receive nothing as a prize. 20,000 hits seems like a lot, but it's been pretty spread out, and I'm almost sure that Scott Wenzel has accounted for at least 12,593 of them.

Thanks for checking in, time to go ride back down to my car in The Springs. Good thing it snowed last night.

It's 10 and I'm not out of bed.

The last three days I would have had at least an hour ride time by now. Last week was a huge training week, so like usual, my life gets pretty dull when I'm riding a lot. I went out and had a beer last night though! One beer and I was wrecked, came home and went to bed.

So, I usually don't update when I don't have anything close to worthwhile to say, but I've been getting pressure to tell people things they want to hear. Last week my milage on the bike would have circumnavigated the globe 8 times. My kilojoule expenditure would have powered New York City for a full week.

Not true.

The riding has been great though, everyday I kick myself for not bringing a camera, but at the same time, I don't think I would have gotten home before dark if I'd taken every picture I wanted to yesterday. The weather here in Colorado has been amazing, and I've been exploring new roads every day. I only hope the weather holds out one more day because my car is in Colorado Springs and I'm riding down to get it tomorrow.

I spent the weekend down there, (The Springs, Colorado Springs, The Land of Christians and Medians) and on Saturday I had the best tour guide ever show me around town. After one day of riding with Daniel Matheny, I feel like I now know the town. Sunday Daniel, and some others Scotty and Brad, led me out of town on an all day death march back to Denver. Instead of scooting up the front range, I went deep into the mountains and actually had one of the best rides I've ever had. I'll definitely have to go back sometime and get some pictures of this one creek I rode along for about 5 miles. All in all it was a great day, I got hot, I got cold, I cracked a little, I got a little caffeine buzz, I met some laid back country folk that were more than eager to give directions, and in true Team Rio Grande fashion, I finished the ride off with a chicken burrito on my way back across downtown.

Today I'm resting, but I work tonight, then back at it for another big week before the first weekend of Collegiate racing in NM. Thanks for checking in, I'd say I'm sorry for being so lame, but I'm not.

P.S. Don't ever eat at the downtown Rio in spandex... lots of weird looks.

Strange Days.

Yesterday this page turned into a chat room I guess. Kinda funny, kinda weird.

On another note, I decided to do VOS at the last minute today only to find it was full. Oh well, at least I want to race, that's a good feeling. Things in general have been strange lately and I haven't been feeling myself. Hopefully some good training in the next weeks and then race season will pull me around.

Thanks for checking in.

I don't know why I'm not asleep right now.

I got a short ride in today, but it was way colder than I expected. I did a little laundry, filed my tax returns, and updated my links on here tonight. I heard there was a football game on TV or something? Anyway, sorry I'm lame, I'm excited for race season to start so I have a little excitement back in my life. I was thinking about racing on my ride today (that happens a lot) and I just got this overwhelming excitement/anxiety/drive that I haven't felt in a long time.

This is going to be a good year. One more month of hard work and then I'll be ready to dust off my racing legs and see how they want to go.

Thanks for checking in, and for those of you who came to the Collegiate Tour Baby, thanks, and I'm sorry?

Oh yeah, my Cannondale is back up on eBay, buy it PLEASE! Item # 290203316678
