Road Trip

Not really, but we did drive 2.5 hours to a cyclocross race. Where we'd go? Pocatello, Idaho for Poki Cross. First race of the year and it felt like my first race ever. For some reason I raced in the A flight and it hurt quite a bit. It's been a long time since I've been lapped and I was lapped multiple times. I'm lacking fitness and confidence right now. The fitness will come but I really need to gain some confidence.
I ran vittoria tires tubless on ksyriums. No burps but I ran way too much pressure for a grassy/bumpy course. Time for a cross workout and more tire pressure games.

Working on my attitude.

She's pretty and she yells at me while I'm racing.

News Flash!!!!!!!!!!

I'm going to be a dad.
We've know for about 4.5 months now, but today we saw what's been growing in Katie's belly. I am blown away. Our baby is pretty damn cool (per Katie)!

Here's Katie on the ultrasound table. Why no pictures of me? Cause I had the camera and I was too busy crying. It was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. Fingers, toes, 4-chambered heart, and "it" has attitude. Why "it"? Because it was a surprise and we want to keep it that way.

What have we been doing?

We've been busy living the good life for the past three weeks. Check it out!!!!

Veggie chili cheese dogs!!!!

The original cheese dog

Seriously, it's been rough

Real Rough!!!!

I've been doing some interval work and the occasional ride in hail/rain. Cross season is just about here. And I'm just about ready. Look for some pics and updates from the first race soon!

Obesity Pandemic Looms

While I was eating my breakfast this afternoon I came across an article on AOL regarding obesity in the world. Read it and let me know what you think. Here's the address: http://news.aol.com/health/story/_a/obesity-pandemic-looms-experts-say/
Here's picture to offset the tone of this post.

Mona hates cameras, loud noises, large men, and having her naps interupted.

I rode this bike for a little over 3 hours yesterday and watched a bad football game.
