Today’s run

This isn’t quite my normal style, but sums up my run well as it happened; figured I’d leave it in raw form this time.

Today’s run:

snow rolling in – muting all sounds to just feet striking and breathing

turn off the concrete and start heading down the trail

snow turning everything white

only sounds […]

Barking Dog 2011

The Barking Dog Duathlon is usually one of my favorite races of the year, partially because of the location and also because I tend to do well at it. This year the weather was great! In the past it has been one of the colder races with lots of wind and or rain, but today […]

Atomic Man 2011

This race was a real surprise for me. I had no idea what to expect in this race; the bike leg was much farther than I have gone in training with any effort above very low base pace, however I had a good Platte Half and ran a 5k last week at a pretty good […]

Platte River Half Marathon 2011

I’m still amazed at how well I did in this race. I honestly was semi worried that I’d completely bonk and get my worst time yet on the race. The past three months has been lackluster for training to say the least – high stress, lack of sleep, emotionally draining, not eating right, imbibing a […]

Schoolyard Cross ’10

This past Saturday was the Schoolyard cyclocross race at Boulder reservoir. I had actually thought about skipping races this weekend after having the crud I’d somewhat had for the past several weeks really hit after last Sunday’s race. However, by Wednesday I was feeling ok and by Thursday I was itching to get out again, […]

Boulder Cup Cyclocross Race 2010

The final run up

This past weekend was a double dip race weekend – the Colorado Cross Classic on Saturday and then the Boulder Cup race on Sunday. I had registered for the double months ago and had planned on doing at least one other double weekend to prep for it before the actual […]

Colorado Cross Classic Race Report

It was a great race today at Boulder reservoir for the Colorado Classic Cross race! The 35+ Cat4 field was sold out as usual, so there was a lot of good competition. I have figured out how to ride sand this year so I was really looking forward to this course.

On the first […]

It is what it is…and it’s mostly good

This weekend was a series of ups and downs.

Friday afternoon, quite a few of us from Blue Sky Velo Club took the afternoon off and helped set up the course for the Blue Sky Velo Cup cyclocross race. This is always one of the highlights of the CX season for me as I love […]

Not Going to Stop

Heart slamming in my chest, sight greyed out beyond 50ft with pin hole vision starting to creep in, legs and lungs were searing but now are silent – I think the nerves signaling pain overheated and had to shut down for a bit. Pick myself up off the ground and start to run with my […]

Spring and mid summer update part 1

Wholly moly its been too long since an update, I’ll break a catch up into two (or more) parts so as to not overload you. Then I will get a couple more current posts up as well that I’ve been working on…

The good news is that I’m running again and the knee seems 100% […]
