Got Crabs?





I once heard someone say, "If you can't see the ocean, don't eat the fish". Well since I have been in Florida most of my Mom's cooking has featured some sort of aquatic goodness. Last night we had monster sea crabs w/ shrimp and the night before Tuna Steaks. If there is one thing I like to do as much as ride my bike, it's to eat!



Well tomorrow is the final day of Mom's Annual Training Camp.... I am really going to miss her, her kitchen and both freezers! She is my source of inspiration and my biggest fan (as most of you know from her comments on the site)!



You can't fake hard work! This is the result of two weeks in the saddle under the Florida sun. I do miss the Boulder group rides though. The Florida solitude makes the miles tick by slowly.

Since most of you are kicking it at work trying to pass the time, I thought I would drop a couple links your way to help you out:

For your daily fix on two wheels I give you two options; Insane Bike Jump or Pocket Rocket! (compliments of Drewes)

As a guitarist myself, I have to give mad props out to this 6 year old laying down some killer licks.

And somehow this Pro has figured out the secret to no tan lines!?

Nick,
It's been an awesome three weeks having "my boy" home with me again. I loved every minute with you. Thanks so much for coming home for Christmas. Your daily dedication to train, even on the scary, crowded roads of Southwest Florida, amazes me. I've so enjoyed our lazy morning gab sessions and learning more about you at this stage in your life. You are one special guy and I'm not just saying that because I am your mother. I see the choices you make in life to better yourself and the lives of others and it makes me swell with love for you! Safe travels back to CO and have fun during your upcoming "training camp" in Grand Junction! What fun lies ahead for all of you! Until next time......

Your tan lines are indeed a badge of hard work and honor. You'll have to get a little more risque' to match Jure's from 2004 RAAM.

And Rochelle's lack of tan lines......even more impressive. Maybe it's the garter belt kit?

RideOn

You must have superman eyes to believe that saying. Those king crabs are not local they are from Alaska. Your mom must be loaded to buy those down there, so enjoy her wealth and ride like you can do better ;)
