Well, Thursday I decided I wanted to ride with the Thursday group. So I rode the 8 miles to the start and proceeded to get demoralized all the way until the 1/2 way point, maybe. (I would show pictures but forgot the camera at the shop). I am still building base and it was just to hard for me to hang on. I will get there, I just need more time in the saddle. I cruised on back in, ego hurt....but oh well.

I was able to get in some quality hours on the bike this week as well as some good running. I have a run tomorrow morning (Saturday) with Derek. I figure around 8-9 miles or so. I want to check out some new dirt roads I have discovered. That should be fun. On Sunday its back on the bike for Derek's Birthday Ride. It should be around 50 miles or so. I plan on keeping it easy. If the pace gets high I will be in the pack. I will not be the antagonist of that.

Is anyone interested in racing for The Bike Store for the Georgia Cyclo-Cross season? We will have gear (bibs, jerseys) ready by July and then more gear (vests, jackets, etc.) will be ordered for the fall. I want the riders to be interested in the Georgia series but we might travel up to Kentucky for a UCI race or two and I would love to consider nationals, its a long shot but if we can't do it this year we can about it for next year. If anyone is interested let me know via email at: creeves29@hotmail.com. Please let me know in the next month or so so I can plan. Below is me, driving by myself to Augusta and back, by myself, lonely, no team to share the drive.

Thanks!

Chip, Chris, and I rode up to Heritage Park outside Athens, Ga and completed one of the GSC/SERC races. Chris placed 4th and Chip, with two flats still managed a solid 8th. We drove in style with the trailer being pulled by the BS Express.

I managed to enter the woods in 3rd and held the spot for about a mile or so until I decided to crash. Not to toot my own horn but I don't go down to often and this race I managed to go down 3 times. I ended up placing 11th, I managed to give up 9th and 10th place in the last 50 yards but I am not in it for points. I just wanted to get a good hard workout. I did that the first lap and maybe some of the 2nd lap. I ended up cruising pretty much all of the 2nd lap to keep from tapping into my reserves. I was already cramping just a tad. I kind of expected that considering the heat and the lack of hard riding on the mtb. It was fun though. I know I am going to race at the Pig but I don't know about anything else. My training is already taken up by running for the Stumpjump 50K and gearing up for cross.

Thanks for reading!

Watch David Millar on the far left. His chain breaks!

I have accomplished what I set out to do today. Start getting in quality base mileage for cyclo-cross season. I have been slowly ramping up my running for the Stumpjump 50K and that is going great. I road with the group this morning, as we departed The Bike Store everyone was in good spirits. I ended up getting in just over 2.5 hours in while still keeping my HR low except for in a few spots where it was impossible. I just stayed in the saddle and road up the climbs nice and steady.

I have been waiting all week for my shipment of Myogenesis to come in. It should be here tomorrow at the shop.

Thanks for reading!

So I was reading Dave Zabriskies website earlier and I came across a couple of funny things but this one stuck out:

"Good to see Iron Man raking it in at the box office. I wish Marvel would realized that they have more than enough money to sponsor a bike team and step up as our title sponsor. Everyone could be a different character with custom clothing and bikes. We could probably pull off the reality TV thing more easily this way as every guy could assume the personality of a character – now that'd be good TV. And really, what's real about reality TV anyway" Dave Zabriskie

Now that's a good idea.

I hope all the mothers out there had a great Mothers Day!

I have been reading Bowerman And The Men Of Oregon. Man, what a great read. This book should be read by any sports fanatic. For people who don't know who Bill Bowerman is check it out here.

Oh! I have been running a ton and bike alittle. Legs have been feeling good. I hope to see some people out on the roads.
