I am now so euro by default

I now have had my SIDI ownership increase to four pairs. I am now uber-euro by default.

I just copped some new Spiders for cross/mtb. These have cyclocross designed in them. They have a reinforced toe box, and replacable tread.

my weekend of different excercises

I did a few new things this weekend.

Friday I participated in a game called 'gold sprints'. This game was quite a bit more fun than I thought it would be. A sweet new Specialized Roll was on the line. I made it to the final round, where I was defeated-no whooped by Pete Dy.

Saturday I participated in my power testing. Hit 197 bpm. Felt like puking, never really hit that level of exertion before on the bike. Power numbers are locked up in a high-security number-dungeon.

Sunday I participated in the Run with your Heart 8k trail run. One dude just took off and ended up winning by about 5 minutes. I was in 2nd and 3rd position with this one guy for the first 1.5 miles, than I dropped him hard on the climb. On the final downhill around mile 4.5 he caught up. It came down to a finish line sprint for 2nd. And just like my sprint on the bike i suck. Ended up in 3rd. I am now retiring from running.
