    Things I've Seen in 2013 (pic-heavy X-post from AZ)

    At the start of 2013 I had one overriding goal: complete the AZT300 race in April. I fell short in 2012 and was out for some personal redemption, my bike and I vs. the trail. I readied myself for the race and in April I somehow managed to drag my carcass across the finish line, by far the toughest most rewarding mountain biking feat to date.
    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/FOpSLBY1Tn7H7Vei3X4W7tMTjNZETYmyPJy0liipFm0?feat=e mbedwebsite"><img src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-V-PgdnRDQbk/UXhUzyOafMI/AAAAAAAANOI/qxO2P8ImGXc/s800/P4230283.JPG" height="600" width="800" /></a>
    AZT300 finish line.

    2013 still had 7 1/2 months to go, now what? It turned into a desire to get out and explore new places & get more riders introduced to the overnight ride experience. In the end it was a tremendous success, I can't wait for more.

    Here are my ride stats for the year (all mountain biking):

    108 rides
    3,161.53 miles
    308,347 ft
    205,457 calories burned
    606:35:28 (h:m:s) time riding

    The year wasn't entirely all about mountain biking as I finally made a return to the slopes after a year hiatus. We visited family in Florida & California and attended a couple of football games as well.

    Less text, more pics!! Here's my 2013 recap in chronological order:

    Thank you for the passion hit. Sweet pics!
