A moment of Zen.

TweetPh.D writing has not been going as planned this weekend. I have had ups and downs before and I know this will happen again. Sometimes the brain just needs to relax.

3 Weeks Post

Tweet I’ve been feeling like this all week. Ready to get back in the game. Put me in coach, I’m ready! But I am being smart for once.

Overall I had a very good year making positive gains in both life, work and racing.

Wakefield CX: Idiot Abroad

TweetIt’s that time again. The domestic CX scene is over and we have to go to other pastures to race. I know many don’t but with my rather slow start to the CX season this year I wanted to make sure I at least got a few more races in. Hopped on the plane on Saturday morning and flew from… Read more →
