Viva Le Tour!

Wow. The Tour just got silly. All the doping in pro sports is getting so lame. All the doping accusations are getting old. This latest cycling scandal has the potential to be huge. I wonder if riders will just sit down again like they did in ’98?

I think I can honestly say that Saturday’s performance, while disapointing, was not something I need to get to worked up over. I appreciate the comments and emails I have recieved, as well as the words of encouragment that people said to me during the event. Thanks for the morale boost 😀 After the race […]

E12-"E" is for Empty

Posted by on Jun 26, 2006 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Empty. That is all I feel right now. And it is not the empty of having spent all your energy and strength. All was going well until about 6 hours into the race. I sat down in the pits feeling “not quite right” and I didn’t get up again. Physically I was fine. Mentally, I […]

Big Views, Big Climbs

Posted by on Jun 18, 2006 in Uncategorized | No Comments

We had a good ride today. 8655 feet of elevation gain over 56 miles. The climbing topped out at just about 9000′. We were rewarded with big views of Mount Timpanogos, Heber Valley and other parts of the Wasatch Back. After today’s effort, I think I can say that it is “all systems go” for […]

Into the Back

On November 29th I wrote the following: “It is days like today that make me long for the long hot days of July. Waking up before sunrise, hitting the trail while the crisp mountain air still bites at your lungs, and setting off on a 6 hour epic…yeah, those are the days that keep me […]
