climbing

Alright I think I am getting on top of this. I am not hacking quite as bad as days past and slept pretty good the last few nights. I made the stupid decision to go try and race at Clinton, I just am a sucker for a start line. I must have been dehydrated pretty bad from being sick because after only 15 minutes or so of racing both my calves cramped up. For a couple of minutes it looked like mice were running around inside my calves. So I left and went back to building bikes at the shop.

Yesterday Scooter and I rode on the road for close to 3 hours and although I did not feel good I could tell my legs are coming around. The weather is warming up and we are climbing up and out of Winter...hopefully.

My schedule is fixing on getting a lot busier in the coming weeks. Not only are things at the shop starting top pick up, I picked up a couple of side jobs that will keep me moving. For one I am going to be teaching a few spin classes a week at the Health Club next door to where we live. I have helped with a few already and I enjoy it quite a bit. I have to go through the Spinning certification program which wonderfully enough is the day before Ouachita, but then I will be ready to teach away. The second thing is, hopefully, driving the new pedi-cabs downtown zipping people around during big events, back and forth. I am totally stoked about doing that, and Jason Gakowski was kind enough to put in a good word for me with the people he knew starting the company and apparently they had several names of interested riders and they called me first yesterday. It might be a little unorthodox but it still getting paid to ride.

Good to hear man

Spin classes, I taught a 6am class two days a weeks for over 2 years. Fun stuff, but those rooms get made hot after 40min of riding in the summer. Get a mop!

Sounds like you have a lot of irons in the fire! We raised some money for the trails down at Minor park last weekend at our trail race! Good luck at your upcoming events. I put those pics from the cross nats on a CD for you, but I haven't seen you in awhile. I'll try to get by the shop soon. Later.
P.S. You gonna do any ridin at Shawnee Mission when the mud dries up?
