Just words....

So I haven't been on the bike since the wife and kid got back from their trip. I've also been putting in a lot of hours at work, and haven't even had time to read my favorite time suckage like MTBR, Bike Mojo, and bikecentric. I just skimmed Ricky's monster and joep's blog. I'm really missing the east coast and my biking friends, at least I can read their blogs and feel like I'm still there. Here in Tejas it's been hotter than hell. I have found a favorit trail (Madrone) and have been doing some riding and trail work while out there. The main trail guy there Joel is a cool guy from the PNW and has taken me under his wing, he's also a 29er guy and rides with toe clips! It's funny to see, but he's pretty darn good with them.

Funny, I look at my goals for this year and I'm already way behind. I'm eating like crap and not on the bike as much as I want to be. Being a new parent is difficult and is cutting into time I used to take for granted. Funny, funny thing... the wife is hitting me up for a health club membership. Maybe a gym is the perfect thing until I have more time to dedicate to the bike.

Problem is, if I visit, I'm going to want to stay, and I need to make silly money to be able to afford living there again.... c'mon Texas Lotto!

Are you at least buying 'em tix? Remember, all it takes is a dollar, and not your whole paycheck! :p

I thought I'd feel the same way about Colorado when I moved here. Little by little the DC area grew on me. Colorado is a nice place to visit, but I'm not ready to move back there yet. I get a little homesick when I visit, but it isn't uncontrollable.

If you visit and find the draw to move back is too much, just get in your car and try to drive down 95 through the mixing bowl at rush hour. That'll help cure the homesickness. :D
