If anyone has seen 2 duffle bags full of presents and bicycle stuff that NW airlines seems to have thrown COMPLETELY away, let me know.
I am in MI and enjoying my time around the family tree.

Secret Training Weapon

My secret training weapon is chocolate cherry cake with icing for breakfast. It is awesome, I will eat it for breakfast and then feel so bad about myself that i go out and train for hours. The only problem is that I am usually starving when I get home so I will eat some more...

I love the south, saw this on my ride this morning. If you don't see what is wrong with the sign just smile and nod.

My heel is officially healed. I had my last DRs appointment today. Yup I am good to go!!! That wasn't to bad. HA! Ask the people close to me how horrible i was for these 4 months. I would like to thank all those people who put up with me for their patience. Time to get back on the regimen.

Taking Cyclocross very seriously....

This is me in last place at the finale of the NC Cross series. I was trying really hard and had my game face on.
Things are going great, except I have found out that eating chocolate cake for breakfast is a ton of fun!

Not much

is going on. Except for the fact that I have been walking like a normal person for about 2 weeks now. My heel has healed. It is funny, because now that I can walk again I have already forgotten what a pain is was to be on crutches. HA!!!
Things have been real good. I have training again and enjoying the long rides for the most part, except that it seems a lot hillier now than I remember...

I went to a cross race yesterday and ran into some friends. I like richs choice of knee warmers..

Andy got some new wheels, which helped him fly to a second place finish in the North Carolina Cup Finale. He ended up 2nd in the series and he WON the TN Mud Sweat and Gears series...Congrats to him.

This is what Andy and his wife brought to the cross race for just the two of them...

Oh yeah, I was wrong about the temp today... it was 78.

To all my friends and family up north....

It is sunny and 76 right now in North Carolina...
