Holiday Weekend

Greg and I were planning on going from Atlanta to Crested Butte for a weekend of camping and mountain biking. This was the week that was assigned to me as a mid-season rest... as much mental as physical. Although I have felt fine physically, the mental break is as much or more important and always welcome.
The good news and bad news... the bad news is that Greg was/is fighting a asthma/allergy hack and I came down with a summer cold so we cancelled the CB trip. The good news is that we live in Boulder and it feels like a holiday just hanging out here.
We did lots of staying home and sleeping but also managed to still mountain bike several days.

Greg and I on some trails outside of Boulder. Those are the famous Boulder Flatirons you always hear about. Beautiful!!
I got up to Nederland another day with my friend Mike and his friend Jess. Super sweet singletrack! Thanks to these guys for putting up with my lack of technical skills and being patient. In this picture (i-Phone once again so not great quality) you can see the Eldora ski area in the back. Still some snow way up high.
I thought I was breathing hard because I had been at sea level for 3 weeks and went straight to mountain biking at 9,000 feet. I guess I was getting sick.

Back to work this week. Translation- following a training plan. I am super inspired and looking forward to the hard work ahead. I can taste the winter track season!
