racing and culture dump

racing and culture DUMP.

yeah yeah yeah, I’ve been having a rough go of it this season. Not looking for “poor molly!” sympathy but, if anything looking to vent and turn my scene around. The 2 most common phrases out of my mouth are “I’m so fucking tired.” and “I’m so fucking busy.” So, the insanity is not new to me. But, I am a planner and a communicator. I like to lay things out months in advance and then have the plans come together smoothly. I like to have a solid idea of what the future holds in store, what my agenda is and how I can budget my time. Because I do NOT have enough of it and, I’m smart about putting it where needed, when needed. I also like to be really good at the things I do. And, racing cyclocross is a big one.

Don’t really know where I am going with this. But, I am tired. Deeply, deeply tired. And, it is showing. I want to take a week long nap and reset. CX season has hardly begun and, I am already feeling haggard.

If I am good at anything, it is being honest with myself. And, I am telling my self to back off a little, recover + re-charge and look forward to Japan and beyond. I’m not even sure if I want to race a bike this week, I may just get caught up on work and see how the hell I am feeling. Well, I really should give the Blind Date another go on Wednesday evening. Man, it is going to suck once it starts raining and we have to ride out and race at night in the rain every Wednesday night.

Oh snap, rumor has it I’ve got a leader’s jersey to wear for that series!


So much awesome stuff catches my eyes. I don’t have enough hours in the day to take it all in, check it all out or experience. Pete just sent me this insanity:

Margaret Kilgallen is one inspiring lady. MLFYIASOH has a nice article and link to this video below. I was lucky enough to have known her, if only for a little while.


More inspiration, click the words below. This is a sentiment I absolutely share.

Why not just do it now?


Jeff Curtes is a nice guy, an adventurer and photographer. Click the link and enjoy his little blog.

The VideoGamer nerd’s partners will enjoy this. Can’t remember who I saw this from.


And everyone caught this right? Ryan’s bike with some sweet-as tyres!



And, I have posted about these prints before but, you should check them out again. Because I can do whatever the hell I want. Except race my cx bike adequately this season, apparently.
