not so hot...nationals.

NOT SO HOT is the best way to sum up nationals. Not my worst race ever, but far from my best. I felt FLAT the whole day and just couldn't get in going on the bike...leg cramps most of the run. Despite all that i still got 2nd place (25-29) and 10th age-grouper, 27th overall . I was very surprised to finish where i did, considering the way i felt. Still had fun ....i think i probably over stretched my massive legs (during this photo shoot in the bathrooms). Hairy man jason is a monster and pulled off a huge win! He was first place amature and 12th overall. Stoked for him and Ed Oliver (won his age group). Time for CX racing and beer drinking.

nationals here and now

game time in just a few days! i love the ogden course and its super good for my strengths which i guess is going up. training has been not as great as i had hoped. work got busy and i was out of town in vegas then san diego for tradeshows. my last few sessions have been solid though and i feel strong. went and did a CX race on sat. finished 16th in the mens elite (cat 1-2) so it was good to blow the cobwebs out and truly suffer. my wrist is injured from skateboarding, but it shouldn't affect my race in utah at all. as my buddy erik says time to F.S.U!
