No Racing Yet

So with no racing there isn't much to report on. Other then riding a day or two with my boys from Avon, and going out a couple of times to have Chad "throttle" me, I've been basically flying solo. The high of waiting for team camp and camp itself has come and gone and it's been back to the grind for a while. Other then getting a lot of unusual March sun, it feels like winter for myself because racing seems to be in the far distant horizon. One more month till Battenkill!

So today started my not so secret Battenkill training which is to ride the Breezer True Hilly Hundred as much as possible. It's been measured at 175 km's with 8000ft of climbing with plenty of dirt roads/climbs. Brutal. I need to take Chad out there. Maybe he will actually stop laughing while riding!

So I've joined the trend of joing Twitter. I guess people use it just to post what they are doing periadically. Some more then others. You can also view it on my blog now. So if you're wondering what I'm doing or thinking check it out, or just peak to the right.

So my brother's wedding is Saturday! So another trip up to Michigan this weekend. There are going to be so many things going on and I'm sure it's going to crazy. Not only is there a rehearsal dinner on Friday, followed by a 'bacholere' party, Saturday's wedding, but Sunday is the Bay City's Annual St. Patrick's Day parade. If I can do my math correctly I think that equals 3 days of excessive drinking. He's another, what are the chances of getting a drunk photo or two of someone posted by Monday? About a third, what are the chances of Jamie and Jamie actually running/walking/skipping the 5km run at 11:45am the morning after the wedding.

As a side note though. Who was the last person to make a fool of them self at a wedding? Well it was myself at my wedding. I wish I could blame it on the alcohol, but I think I would have had to consume some for that to happen.

Climb from today, but photo not actually from today.

St Patrick's Day parade from last year I believe. I'm pretty sure 80% of the town come out for this.

I promise this will be the last photo from camp I will post anywhere. It's my favorite. It's us rolling up Paris Mtn.
