Triathlons

They kinda suck unless you make up your own. Today was about as absolutely perfect trail conditions out at Landahl as I have ever seen. Rode our normal loops backwards and was experiencing one of those heavy flow days. Bliss. Followed up with a run (Huck's tri was run-swim-nap) then the year's first mow. Ride yer bike!

I'm a member in at least one Hall of Fame

Pretty cool to be included in an amongst some influential mountain bike people with Dirt Rag Magazine's latest issue. They've been at it for 25 years and asked me to do the table of contents. Gave me opportunity to spit something else out of my head. Hopefully my contributions to them over the years were as beneficial to the publication and the readers as they were for me. Been a fun ride! Liberty!

New Bikes Day

Mom should have named me Steven. Life has a way of evening for me. Couple new old projects coming to me and back to me. Here's a peeky:

More dog, less bike.

Despite what appears in some of these pics, this crazy dog has some extreme focus. ADHD, more appropriately. But all labs are. Run yer dog!

Graypril

Been a cool, wet, cloudy April for the most part, but we're making the best of it. Hopefully my leg strength will flower come May.

Out Like a Lamb

A lamb named gale. Isobars were pretty stacked, but the winds have given us a much welcome taste of Spring. Winter was hard on all of us, right Huck?

Swim lessons

I remember my first swim lesson prior to my kindergarten year. Mr Titus was a Mr Clean - looking drill instructor. Kinda scared me a bit but he said if I didn't jump he'd come up and push me off the dive board as I stood at the end, hesitating. Sometimes we stand around waiting for the ice to thaw, sometimes we're caught off guard and just have to react when we fall right through it. Lessons to be had, either way. For his first time in, Huck was glad it thawed, though.
