The running continues to improve A LOT. As tired as I was, I still pulled some impressive numbers during workouts this week. Thursday's brick on the trails was so good, I found myself whooping Bear Grylls style while hammering up James' favorite hill. I'm running way faster than I thought I was ever capable of. Hard work pays off!
Saturday I had another meeting with my background investigator and we nailed down some details. He said he's 85% done and that my chances of getting hired are good, but not great. I'm crossing my fingers...
Last week's race made it clear that I need more climbing in my regiment (that's for you, Luke!) so I headed out to Vail Lake to get some...climbing that is.
Yay freeway! OK, not really.
"Vailocity" Clever or lame? You decide.
I knew the High School circuit was having a race today, but how many High School kids are into mountain biking?
LOTS! The Merlot campgrounds were FULL! I was relegated to parking by the pool. Sheesh! I was stoked to see so many kids gettin' their race on, though. With the turn-out at Bonelli last week and at the High-School race this week, It's clear MTB racing is back in a BIG way. Sweet!
Still, they weren't using the all the trails. I could wait and get my fix of "Tunnel of Love" a little later. Windy and COLD up top (57 deg according to the bank thermometer; whoa!).
Still, Spring in So Cal is AWESOME!
Green as far as the eye could see and wildflowers everywhere. Beautiful!
