It's been some time since my last report but I am still going at it. Things have gone from a care free approach of exercise with whatever freedom I wanted to the regimented daily list of workouts. Well I guess it isn't as bad as I just made it sound. I still get to cross train but with the Ante being upped this year the workload is tough.
Last year was the first year I took a full race and training schedule head on. It left me very tired and exhausted at the end of last year but also left a very sweet taste in my mouth. Success is a funny thing but I don't know how else to sum things up for me last year. I have come a long way but am only hungry for more. I wasn't sure how things would go but with my extraordinary Coach reassuring me that that I am in a particularly good position, I have no choice to believe in him and myself. So it continues....my search for greatness.
To add to all that I have been trying to give the support needed to help other great people in my life. My Girlfriend Lynn has been pursuing a new career as the economy has left the job market lifeless. My Brother Craig has Also been pursuing some of goals. My sister Jamie is still rocking and been particularly drawing a lot of my attention for support. Not to be left out my other brother Derek has been pushing for a new career after helping his Wife attain some of her goals. Although the scale at which greatness is graded on is grand, I believe that all these people are doing great and deserve recognition. So Good Work you Guys and keep it up!
On the 212 front things are going great! My race machine is being ordered, Mike P. and I have been working out in the weight room, and the rest of the guys are taking care of business up north. I feel blessed and honored to be on the Adventure 212 MTB team for 2010!
