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.

Can we see a side profile of those tail lights? (and the rest)

Mark, Ash was teaching me how to blog from my mobile, so I just posted some pics I had on it. I'll get some good pics up soon. The taillights are flush mounted so there isn't really any side view.... the rubber grommet sticks out about a 1/4".

I told you law school was a bad idea.
