Ouachita Challenge



Blowout MountainI’m so excited to have gotten into the 2013 Ouachita Challenge. It’s going to be an amazing weekend of fun on the mountain bike. On Saturday there is a mountain bike tour that winds it’s way through some sweet single track in the Ouachita National Forest outside of Little Rock, AR. It’s 60 miles of remembering why I love doing what I do.

Then on Sunday, April 7th, it’s time to throw down. We’ll ride the same trails that we rode the day before, but in reverse direction. The legs will be a little tired from the previous days ride, but that’s all part of the fun.

The race sold out in about 10 minutes this past weekend, so you know it’s a good one! I’m so pumped to be heading down there to ride and hang with Craig Roberson and the rest of the guys from the SweatBloodDirt.com crew! Let’s get ready for some fun!

New House & A 5k



It’s been an busy month. The biggest news is that Jennifer and I bought a house! Holy cow! I am a home owner. Wow.

With move number 20 (yes that’s right, 20x I’ve moved in Boulder), I’m very excited to not be moving for a long time. So with a solid place to be for a while, I decided to sell all of my old mismatched stuff on Craigslist. It’s been keeping me busy and I do feel a bit like an episode of Hoarders at the moment.

It hasn’t been the most exciting month for blogging with lots of moving, lots of base training, and lots of cleaning around the house (I know you’re jealous). I did do a local 5k just for fun last weekend and the results were as expected for the off season. There was a little prize money on the line, but if there is $$$ in a race around Boulder, you can bet that there will be some fast guys to scoop it up. I toed the line hoping to get at least third (and pick up $50), but when I looked at the calves of other runners next to me and saw the Olympic rings tattooed on, my anticipated result seemed a bit ambitious.

Gotta run. Need to keep posting stuff to Craigslist and try to clear out this basement so I can start remodeling.
