Missing the ice



What have I been doing for the month of January?

Riding...



Riding...



and more riding...



It's becoming a problem because the climbing people are getting restless. Mainly this girl...



She harasses me about my bike every chance she gets. She hates my bike. It's eating up all of my attention. We used to spend so much time climbing together that Brian started calling her my "winter boyfriend". But alas, I have not been out on the ice yet this year! It's very sad. I miss the ice and I miss climbing with Kim.

But I'm starting to realize that if I want to accomplish any of my goals that I need to be able to focus. It used to be that I would do a little of everything, but it's really hard to get good at anything like that.

The plan is to ride my ass of in January, February and early March, and then taper for two weeks before the race. During that time I can start ice climbing again. I'll have at least two months of good solid (warm weather, long daylight) climbing days after that.

So there it is. I can do everything I want to do, I just need to organize a little bit. And maybe Kim can be my spring boyfriend this year.

Oh my gosh...and here I thought our little ice storm and 8 inches of snow on top of that was bad. You take it to a whole new level and enjoy it! Beautiful pics and a lifestyle way beyond my imagination. Thanks to your pics, tho..

There's a simple solution here: Vu needs a fat bike!
