    2007 Halfway point reflections...

    Hey gang, I usually don't post here but I thought I'd start a thread for all the half a year achievements. Any thoughts? Reflections?

    Basic reasoning and math seem to be difficult subjects to grasp

    The year is half over when the 6th month is OVER.

    So, he's proactive. That's usually a good thing.

    Accomplishments: finally upgraded to FS. Improved my lap times and avg speeds at my local trail significantly(like dropping over 6 minutes per lap). Made it to the top of Cedar Rock Trail at DuPont without dying, and the next day made it to the top of Bent Creek without stopping, which is a feat for me. Lost 40lbs.

    Let's see....that's really about it. It's a modest list, but I have bigger things planned for the future, so my 2nd half list should be better.
    yep...

    It is indeed early, but what the hea..

    -Finished the Moab Rim Ride on a rigid SS, faaar exceeding my expectations.

    -Temporarily gave up my will to live at the KTR, opening my eyes to my future in endurance mountain biking.

    -Met loads of cool folks at both of the above.

    -Increased student productivity at work threefold, and will soon be leveraging that into a raise at the one year mark.

    -Ran my first trail ultra.

    It's been a good 5 months.

    It's June already and I've only missed like 2 days due to injury. By this time I've usually messed up big at least once. I've ridden with someone new, almost never happens. Spent a couple days clearing my home track( it has been years since its been ridable start to finish) and it is a blessing to be able to ride at home when I don't really have time to go somewhere. Oh, and we had a great stretch of weather here in CT until just recently.

    I did the longest off rode ride to date for me. Started at strawberry peek to red box to swizter to the gaberino trail to jpl. Not sure of the milage but it did toke us 5 hours to finish. I know it was good because it makes me smile when I think about it. Second half of the year is already filled with a lot of good trips. mammoth, santa ana river trail. bootleg canyon, and utah all to come b4 the yr ends. I am hooked and really enjoying myself. I have even lost 25lbs this yr so far.

    Only one race done this year (on the road)...I got 4th. Solid.
    Kids, keep your grades up so mommy and daddy don't ground you. Go to class so the school doesn't try to fail you. Then you can ride more.
    I did clear all the jumps on the local and incredibly sketchy DS course...some stuff that I couldn't do on my FS back in the day.
    Need to purchase a dedicated XC race bike, because I'm missing that.
    Summer's almost here, time to hit the road bike and get in shape for DS and super D at sugar and some local bmx.
