We wanted to go support Jason Donald. His parents and my parents have been friends since before Jason and I were born (1979-80). He and I grew up skiing and schooling together. We then went our separate ways; me ski racing, Jason college going and steeplechase running. Now we have come full circle and are both racing our bikes. He's making a living doing it. I'm just doing it (ie. not really making anything but new experiences).
It was great to see him and I wish him the VERY best for the upcoming race season. How exciting!!

A break I had, and it was great. Four weeks of nothing-ness. Except for 3 hikes, I did no exercise whatsoever. Instead, I caught up with friends, family, work and rest. Now I feel MUCH better.
Now, riding bikes is FUN! I've been on all kinds of bikes doing all sorts of riding; road, cross and even a mountain bike (and it was fun!).
It's easy to forget how fun riding a bike is. It's easy to become attached to the SRM becoming a robot on the bike. It's also easy to be so concerned with training that you forget to enjoy yourself and remember why you ride a bike: because it's FUN!
