So another year is in the books at the ripe old age of 28. I think because of the constant cold and shoveling heavy snow for cross training I think 28 is more like 48 in Wiscompton years here in the Midwest. I have been doing some snowshoeing, and over 60 Km of XC Skiing over the last week and a half. It gets better each time out and as it gets colder at night the ice forms more and more on my most excellent beard.
As far as racing goes I have an xc ski race next weekend and the weekend after I will be racing another xc ski race that Saturday, Quadrathon (quadrathon=5k run, 5k bike, 5k snowshoe, 5k xc ski) after finishing the quadrathon, I jump back into the snowshoes and race another 5k on Sunday. After all of that there is nothing till Sea Otter.
Plans are slowly coming together for the Sea Otter Classic and finally after almost two years I will visit with the people who hold the fort down at EVOMO headquarters. This is pretty exciting considering the fact the closest I’ve been to the West Coast was up towards Fargo North Dakota. One thing I want to know is who’s all coming with me?
Also, some random thoughts would be since the team has many riders from all over the country, we need to know what local beer is only available to your area alone? For here in Wisconsin we have the popular Leinenkugel Fireside Nut Brown and a lesser known, but just as tasty Point Oktoberfest. So let’s hear it my EVOMO-ITES what beer am I ordering at your favorite pub?
