Taking It To The Streets



I actually felt guilty today as I dusted off my road bike and took it to the streets. It has been nearly two weeks since I have reached for the skinnys over the phatties.



My friend Al, one of my first training partners from WI, came out to Boulder to see what it was all about. When I asked him if he was up for today's daily dose of "epic" he replied, "Well I didn't come out here to ride easy!" 12,000 feet of climbing later he either loves me or he hates me....



Don't worry about picking up your tickets to the gun show Jeremiah, Stefano has them right here. (As I have stated before, Stefano and JB have a friendly wager rollin, if Stefano can beat JB's time up some climb in Virginia, JB is going to give him his 9.9 race hardtail) Make sure you keep it clean JB, cause this cat is killin' it right now.



So I came home from my ride to find about 1 million calories waiting for me. I guess I won't have to go to the grocery store for a year or so. My personal favorite is putting the Pria Bars in the freezer for that go to late night snack.... they induce Girl Scout Cookie flashbacks?!

I have been sponsored by PowerBar for 12 years, so I am telling you on good authority that pria bars are for chicks!

Tell that Poser Al to update his duds. That kit is so last year. Let him know that I will still punish him anytime, anywhere.
