Its spring here in Durango, and I could not be happier. It was in the 60's today and I was suffering because I still dressed as it was in the 40's. I am trying to get my body used to riding in super warm temperatures. So essentially I have been finishing every ride, swimming in sweat and exhausted as hell. Also with it being spring again, I have my Durango training buddy back. After dominating the XC ski scene here in the Rocky Mountain region, Tad Elliott is back on the bike, and I could not be happier. The long days in the saddle with just an iPod have been a bit hard.
The snow is almost gone here in Durango. We still have some time before we can ride mountain bikes again, but, its nice to see grass again. Things are changing and I also have about 4-5 weeks of school left. Can not tell you how happy I am to get out of the dorms and back to my local trails. Yeah, spring is generally a good time of year in all directions. Hopefully soon I can get my tan back and my legs into race forum. I don't have much time left, Super excited!
