Riders Block.

I’m not even a professional writer and I have writer’s block. I have been tossing around some topics for this week, but couldn’t seem to nail one down. I don’t want to bore everyone with updates of how training is going, because that’s redundant. There is, of course, the big story - Lance. I can... Continue Reading →

One week in.

Since I last posted seven days ago, I spent this past week working my tail off - or so I thought. I suffer from migraines and had one from last Tuesday until about Thursday afternoon.

Get Out and Try It.

I get compliments from friends about how busy I am and how great it is that I do the stuff I do.  By stuff I mean mountain biking, running, playing basketball, skiing, yoga, snowboarding, snowshoeing, rock climbing and whatever else is presented to me.  I accept the compliment as it feels good to know that...
