Boxing Day

Nationals? It sucked. I'll get around to a race report, but the significant detail is merely that I had a sinus infection for ~10 days before leaving, and I decided to take antibiotics rather than risk getting really sick since I wasn't getting better. Infection gone, form gone with it. You ever raced on antibiotics? Then you know what I'm talking about. But more on USAC's annual fundraiser/bake sale/Ice Capades later.

Today I am recovering from Christmas, and by recovering I mean playing with the Wii I bought my daughter now that she's back at her mom's house. I haven't lived in a house with a televisi0n for nearly 5 years and I never had a game system as a kid. It isn't so much that I can't leave it alone as the fact that my elbows are really sore and hyper-extended from boxing. 2 weeks off the bike and I'm a wreck.

Life is good, though, the job hunt resumes, interesting doings shape up for 2010, and some buddies of mine are racing a World Cup today. Lots to catch up on.

Until then, Merry Christmas and thanks for reading.



  1. Use the dummer-boy technique. It’s easy on the shoulders and elbows, and a very effective way to land a flurry of jabs to the head . . . all in the wrists . . .

    Happy New Year!

  2. Ummmmmmm.

    I'm a huge fan of your blog, but where is all the new content? As much as I LOVE rereading last season's triumphs, I'm desperate for some new tidbits. Descriptions of long trainingrides and tire pressure are my favs! :) If I send you a SASE, will you send me an autographed picture? I'd be sooooooooooooooooo happy.
