It’s been awhile, so it’s time.
Will spring every get here? And will it ever dry up. Today was not too bad, clear and in the upper 40’s. But we had a pretty good east breeze that made it feel cooler than it really was. The rain returns tonight, and it doesnt sound like it will end soon. So, I back to basement riding.
Hockey- Our team is currently in third place with two games left. They are both “should win” games, but we all know how those go. We have thirteen points, and the eight place team has 11 points. So there is a bit of a bottleneck and we cant take any of our remaining games lightly. But, our like our chances to make the playoffs and doing well in the playoffs. I love playing with these guys.
Cycling- Despite a less than productive off season, I have been very pleased with my progress. My conditioning is much better than I expected. My weight is coming down, and I’m excited about the upcoming season. Some would question why I am riding for a team based out of Austin. I guess for me it’s still being a part of Texas. I was the elder guy on Buckeye Cycling. I prefer to race the Masters, and I think some of the guys, and I KNOW of the guys, didnt like that. I was racing on my own any way so what difference does it make! And Buckeye did get sponsorship from Rudy Project, and part of that agreement was we would train and ride only in their helmets and sunglasses. I know how important sponsorship is to a cycling team, but I found it a bit restrictive to have to buy a new helmet and sunglasses just to ride with them. Would they ever catch it, no. But I also respect the sponsorship agreement.
