That's What It's Like To Hurt

I climbed out of semi-secret training mode over the weekend. It wasn't what one would call pretty. With only a road bike at my disposal, I tried to pump out some intervals on Saturday, then after dropping the ball on the Bacon Ride on Saturday, I decided to do an even paced out and back to Cortland Sunday. Unfortunately, the wind was not so even paced and I died a small death on the way out, then needed more teeth on the return.

Cross is just around the corner. Here's to doing a bit more than making videos this year.

See the tattered ends of those flags? That was me on arrival.

On the business side, you'll find MWC restocked in War Axe finery, so stop by the new local and say hello to the boys sometime soon.

No paint, but the wheels are ready

Work is crazy busy, which is nice for the paycheck, but bad for getting some powder coat done. I was threatened that it'll be done by the end of next week. Fingers crossed.

In the meantime, the wheels are ready. Mavic Open Pro's to some old high-flange White Industries that have been lookin' nice in the top of the toolbox for too long.

In other news, my wife is spearheading a campaign to wipe out blood related cancer. For those that don't know, my brother and I are Hodgkins Lymphoma survivors. We'll be participating in the Light the Night Walk September 30th at Holmes Lake. If you have some extra money burning a hole in your pocket, I'm pretty sure this would be an OK way to spend it. Donations are accepted here, and they are much appreciated. C'mon, Tina Fey is the spokesperson for crying out loud.
