Sat. morning. 11am. I just woke-up. That's gross! Sleeping that late. But what else was waking up for? It's pouring cats and dogs. Since my last post, "Back", I haven't blogged. Not'n to say or just pour laziness. Hell, no one reads my crap anyway. Lets see... in the last month. Cycle, work, race some. That's it. Damn, I sound to depressing.
Been nursing a saddle sore. Going on month know. Therefore, i haven't been riding as much as I'd like. I race H-Bar last weekend and it was the hardest race I've every done, I think. That 2-weeks off the bike, I payed dearly for. Anyway, I plan to move forward with some ass-kicking in strut. Next weekend is Glen Rose (Solavaca Cat Claw Classic) I gotz to do well. This mountainbike season is so tough. The guys in my class are soooooo damn good and competitive. It's actually very, ahhh..... amazing that the old men in my class are as good as Cat1 19-39 and Pro.
I need a good dose of "appreciation for everything in my life". I can taste it but can't see it... I think I need to look for that bottle...
So, this spring is soo beautiful. I've never seen so much green in my environment. Trees, weeds, flowers, grasses and my house, that've worked so hard on the past 12 years.

I'm back after a long time period of not blogging. It's been a rough beginning to the New Year. Staci, my wife, had a major surgery. (scary stuff...she better now.. And she's tough too) We also lost our 16 year-old cat that has been with Staci and I since we were poor college students. She was glue that held us together at times. (sounds crazy, but she was). It was very unexpected. Also, I lost my favorite dog 1 week later to an unexpected accident. Damn, I miss her. Prior to that I lost Mina, a 13 year old German Shepherd. She also was with us during thick and thin. After healing-up from the loss of our "children" we continue to move on through this adventure of life. Onward!

Was muddy, wet and good. I rode well. Placed a 3rd. Could've would've, should've applies here. I showed up in Perkins fashion. 10 minutes until start. Didn't warm up. Was late for registration, but they allowed me to register. Several inches of rain before hand. The night before, day before and as I was driving there. All and all, now that i've cooled down (from be glued and screwed) it was great to be out there giving it all I've got at the age of 41. Damn I'm blessed and happy.

Friends. Nothing more makes me outraged then when a "friend" decides for one reason or another that fucking his friend is a good idea. Or when a friend can't see beyond his or her own pride and feels inclined to use you as an excuse for not accomplishing an objective. May Karma have it's way with you.

Damn, I lit a fire on the trail today, Friday Oct. 2, 2009 Austin Freaking TExas..Green Belt etc.... Hit the trail about 3pm. Road until 6pm. One bottle of water, no food, no air. Just a BlackBerry and car key. Road like a 22 year-old. Balance was excellent. Trail was Prime. (From the weeks worth of rain. Barton Creek actually has water in it. A miracle nowadays.) And I was dead-on my game. Rode alot of trails I'm not familiar with which makes the G-Belt so freaking great.
Sunday is Bryan BTU Power Pedal Race. 3rd of this season. I'm hoping (of course) to do well. Hopefully, the weather holds out. The 429 is so sweet!

With the wet weather here lately, I'm feeling a bit sluggish. I haven't ridden since this past weekend. The weekend rides were nice, though. I mountain biked 3hrs on Sat. at the GreenBelt. Very sweet section of the belt. Sunday, I went out for 2.5 hrs on the road during the middle of the day. It also was nice. Today, Thursday, I plan on either going to the gym, or running in the rain around Townlake which is usually pretty nice. It's been a while since I've done both. We'll see what happens? BTW: I hope my good friend Rick Jordan reads my blog soon;) Peace!
