Uh, yeah...

Five Guys makes a healthy burger. See, there's tomatoes, lettuce, jalepenos, that's at least 3 veggies...

You can have a lot of fun with a big old' drill and a holesaw.

This blog is dead.

Well, not really. It's more that my cycling life is dead.

A year ago this weekend, I raced the heck out of the Breckenridge 70, knowing my fitness level would be dropping as I entered law school. What I didn't know is that my fitness would spiral out of control and plunge into depths I've never known.

I'm kind of fat now. Not in the obese sense, but I weight 10% more than I did last year. Yes, that is almost as much as the bike I raced at Breckenridge weighed. And while my body's weight has gone up, my muscles have shrunk, meaning I'm fatter than just the weight gain say I am.

I rode my bike two nights ago for the first time in 3 weeks. It felt...weird.

So, it's not that this blog is dead, it's just that there isn't much to write about. Well, not much that is cycling related. I could write about how many tax returns I've prepared, how it's not a good idea to not pay taxes for 10 years, how we feel like true Arizonans now that our windows are tinted extra super dark, or my lame commentary on the Tour de France, but that wouldn't be that interesting would it? Plus, I'd have to turn this into a tax blog which is already boring me to death.

So bear with me while I go through this 'don't exercise, eat gross food, watch TV instead of ride phase. I'll get over it. And then the blogging can resume.

The Reward

After 50 miles and 7000 vertical, it doesn't get much better than green grass in the shade:

I like the tail light one.


Or, if you're fast enough, you could chase them down for 10 minutes and lecture them like someone phast in Provo does.

GF Pargaon

2009 Gary Fisher Paragon, size 17.5 (Medium)

Fox F29 G2 fork
Stan's NoTubes Crest rims on ZTR (stan's) hubs with DT revolution spokes and blue alloy nipples
XT crankset
SRAM x.9 shifters and rear derailleur
XTR front derailleur
Truvativ Stylo Seatpost and Stem (white WC stem) Avid BB7 brakes with 160mm front and 140mm rear rotors
XTR brake levers
Continental Race King 2.2 tires, set up tubeless
White Ridley seat, Blue cable housing and blue Oury grips
Crank Brothers Eggbeater SL's with custom US made and machined titanium spindles. (lighter than 2tis)

This bike was ridden by my wife, which means it was ridden very lightly. She keeps both wheels on the ground. I would estimate that it has 2-300 miles on it. There are some very light scratches on the seatstay. The bike has been VERY well taken care of, and was definitely a fair weather bike: no mud, no wet rides.
