2006 World cross Champs part one:

Oh Niels… The cute one on your right was the favorite for the U23 race. The fat, pimply kid in the middle? Got lucky. Two years in a row lucky I guess. hehheh. I’m off to the gym with Cary and Brian in a second. More crunchs than you can handle. Pete, Brian and I [...]

And people are scared of mountain biking…

Ouch. Moving on. I kinda beat myself up mountain biking yesterday. Matt Hall, Matt Slaven, Steven Hunter and I went out to Sincline (in Washington) near Hood River. I had never been before, it was sweet. The ride started out with too much climbing on Sea Otter-esque single track on wide open sweeping plains. The [...]

Don't like doing what people tell me to.

Rough day today. Self-motivation is really, really low. I actually feel bad about myself! Rode with Cary and Steven for a minute this morning. We hammered up Washington park and I cut out early.

Ohhh, my head…

Well, had my first drink of the year, last year. I finished off Pete’s Vodka giblets. We danced all night and went to bed at 2am. I got up at 2 pm. Ugh. My head f’ing hurts. I slept for 12 hours. Hopped on my bike and did 2 hours in the rain. Came home, [...]
