Short Update

Saturday, February 17, 2007

Before too much time passes, and I slip into my former slacker status, I want to send out a short update. This time I really will try to snap some photos for proof, as I’m on another training trip. I made a last-minute decision to get down to Austin for a week of warm weather …

Back in Boulder

Sunday, February 11, 2007

Now that I have a week back in Boulder, I have realized that as much fun as it is to be away, there really is no place like home. I sure missed having Amanda around for the past week, but the dogs, Frisco, and I made the most of our time.

I had a nice …

Back to the Cold!

Back to the COLD!

I returned to Boulder on Thursday night, and is it ever cold here! I knew I was going to get soft while training out in that mild California weather. Oh well, it was well worth it.

As I mentioned before, I’ll sum up the training totals for the two weeks I …

Training in San Diego

Monday, January 29, 2007

Ok, so this is just a short update on the training we’ve done here in San Diego. It’s been so nice out, we just haven’t wanted to stop riding and running and swimming. Consequently, we’ve been too tired to write much on the blogs, as we might have thought we would do. Ok, I should …

Ok, so I have slacked a bit. My slacking has not been training related, but rather photography related. I keep forgetting to bring the old camera along to document all this great training we’ve been doing. And all the fun we’ve been having. Now I hesitate to talk about how great the wether’s been, as …

No Snow!

Saturday, January 20, 2007

The weather here in Southern California is spectacular. We are here and we are happy. And it is warm. And there is no snow on the ground. More on that later!…

So Much Snow

Sunday, January 14, 2007

YakTrax are the greatest invention for those of you who live in Chilly Cold Climates. When the snow and ice are piled up, but you just can’t take another run on the treadmill, this product is for you! Amanda, in her infinite brilliance, came home the other day with a couple sets: one pair for …

Skate Skiing

Saturday, January 13, 2007

I messed up and didn’t bring my camera along for proof. I’ll have to do so next time, as I think the post with photo is more interesting than the post without. The photo would have been of me doing something I haven’t done in exactly ten years.

A few days ago, I finally decided …


Thursday, January 11, 2007

Wednesday morning I woke up at 6:00am to head over for a 7:00am swim workout. I was up and ready to roll by 6:30…. there was only one problem: Amanda was still in bed, and wasn’t budging. Normally the opposite scenario plays out: I am in bed, while Amanda is attempting to get me rolling. …


Sunday, January 7, 2007

The sun came out yesterday. Turns out that the wind came out as well. Nobody told me that it was supposed to be howling out there, so I bundled up (see above photo), and headed out. I got a late start, as my ‘cross bike didn’t have wheels or tires. I found the necessary parts, …
