Winter Time Riding

For some reason or another I have been getting up at 4 am to get out and ride in the mornings rather at night after work. It's been a nice change up and on some days I ride in the morning and than run after work. It's the best of both worlds and a great way to start and end the day. It's peaceful out and with little to no traffic it makes getting out eary that much more enjoyable. Laura thinks I'm nuts but that goes without saying.

A New Year a New Adventure

2014 was a great year on many levels. I had a great year racing bikes. Here are my highlights:

  • 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo-4th place solo single speed
  • Arizona Trail Race 300 finisher: 2 days 21 hours. 2nd place single speeder. 
  • 12 Hours of Mesa Verde-4th solo single speed
  • Vapor Trail 125 finisher- single spped (4th time to finish)
  • Moab Marathon trail run: 5 hours 23 minutes. 

Now that 2015 is here Laura and I are onto a new adventure. We are relocating to Prescott, AZ. Laura has accepted the position of Human Resources Director for the Town of Chino Valley. We put an offer on a home in Prescott and are going through the process of getting that deal completed. We need to sell the house in Rico. I will stay behind to deal with that while Laura gets to go down to start her new job and enjoy the awesome weather that Prescott has to offer. We always talked about going to that area and Laura's career will make it happen. 

Here are some pics of me riding in Prescott the last two weekends. I'm over the long winters in Rico. 

And hopefully this tiny house on an acre lot will be ours in the next month. And of course there is a trail head within a half mile of the house. Location, location, location!!!!
