Steve Deger's new book

Check out my buddy Steve's new book trailer. This book would make a great gift for a boy.

Race Against the Sky

I saw Race Against the Sky last night. Awesome. I am afraid I have a new obsession/dream. To race the Leadville 100--the quintessential Mountain Bike race, grueling, painful, horribly hard. In the movie, Lance was the ONLY one who didn't have to walk his bike up a rocky incline. Good lord. And I want to do it.

Had a good mountain bike ride last night: discovered that I can ride the trail through Kasota Prairie. Gorgeous, bumpy, challenging in a couple spots. FUN!

Rainy day: good for writing but not for biking!

I may just have to get out on my mntn bike for awhile today, no matter what. But it's gonna be cold and wet.

I worked on the edits of AllieCat this morning. I love the kids in that book. I've spent so much time with them, writing about them is like going for a ride with good friends.

Rapidan TT today

How do we celebrate the first snow in Minnesota? By having a roadie time trial, of course. It was 27 degrees when we started, and the ditches were cloaked with snow. Much burned off by the time we were done, but there's still snow in spots that got no sun today.

And we had a blast at the time trial. I was slow, but only six people raced. Fun times!
