I got other shit to do

I weigh more now than I did when I left for Colorado. Let me say that again, I weigh more now than I did when I left for Colorado. Of course I've got the most important race on the international cycling calender on the brain right now, and I can't get over the fact that I weigh more now than I did when I left for Colorado. Guess all that sport eating I did with Pete-unh caught up with me. Also, I'm still waiting for the Superman effect that I'm supposed to feel after returning from altitude... impatiently. Oh well, maybe if I get lucky I won't win at ORAMM in nine days, and in 2010 I won't feel compelled to return which will allow me to spend more time on my upcoming book signing tour. I didn't actually write a book, but I was thinking that if you printed off my Breck Epic blog from and brought it before me I would consider autographing it. I would only do this for you, of course.

I'll be MOOTSless this weekend. The Meatplow is somewhere within the confines of a brown truck somewhere between Steamboat Springs and Charlotte right about now. I guess it's finally time to break in the Drake powder coat job on the yet to be named Zion.

Maybe I'll get a little riding in on a suspension fork just to confuse my brain a bit before the big race. Anyways, shitty post, but since I'm gonna be out late tonight and up at 5:00am to ride tomorrow I gotta get my shit in order NOW.

Did you know that when you let off the brakes at altitude you gain speed much faster on the descents than at sea level? I wouldn't have believed it, but I wasn't the only one who thought so. Freaky.

Your metabolism is probably changing due to your old age buddy!

As for altitude...
its all about the attitude!

I think people's RBC changes at high altitude.

I remember at La Ruta sometimes, I could feel my heart racing... that could of been the hot hot food I ate though...
