January Training

  I swear, this has got to be one of the craziest January's I have ever had. Aside from the unpredictable weather that has been snowing and freezing one week, to now being almost 50, it's been a big month of change for me. I normally mean what I say, and say what I mean, so when the new year started I really did start up a new life, sort of. So after a few months of doing some property management and snow removal with my buddies, Jason Anders and Sam Stevens, I decided now was no better time than ever to go back to school and work on my degree. So after almost half a decade, I'm back in the classroom, this time, chasing a Computer Science degree. While I do sometimes kick myself for not just knocking this out long ago, I have to remind myself that it's only till recently that I have uncovered my inner computer nerd, and fully embraced it to the point of pursuing it as my hopefully soon to be career. It's been quite the shock to the system going back to class, and is funny since this time around, I'm the older, if not oldest person in the classes. But I haven't let that become a deterrent and it's really cool having the change of pace.

A very common view for me now

So aside from spending even more time stuck behind a computer and my nose buried in a book, I have been putting in some solid work on the bike and on the nordic ski's getting ready for the race season. Luckily, the weather has been pretty great for riding recently, and I've been making a few trips down to Colorado Springs to train with great friend, Kalan Beisel. They have some of the best group ride's on the weekend's that are basically like mock road races. You usually finish them pretty worked with some great miles in the legs. I've gone down the past few weekend's, especially with the X-Games going on in the valley, I figured it would be a great time to miss the masses.

Not really too much more to report on. Although I'm astonished it's already the end of the January. I guess it's true, when you're having fun and staying busy, time truly does fly by.
