First Post

I wanted to try blogging as a way of keeping track of my riding/racing and life experiences this year. Training has been going very well. I’m leaner than ever, and ready to rock!

Our team did a New Year’s ride today (annual tradition) that included climbing Lookout Mountain. My time to the top was 25:00, not too bad considering it’s Jan 1. I’ll be looking to trim a few minutes in the coming months, though. The ride ended up being 60 miles and was a great way to spend the day.

The theme of my blog is ‘the scene begins’. If you read the quote at the top of the page, you’ll see that it’s from a song by The Josh Joplin Group. It’s a good tune about basically being the star in your own movie – life. I thought that was appropriate for the approach I wanted to take.
