Nothing beats racing with friends!
Saturday June 11-12, 2011
This past weekend was the 24 hours of Pat’s Peak in Henniker, NH. Celebrating it’s 10th season as a whole mountain biking weekend. With Saturday having 6, 12 and 24 hour races and Sunday hosting one of the stops on the Root 66 Series. A group of 5 of us entered the 24 hour Coed Division. The best part about this team setup was the fun factor! I got to race with my twin brother, a friend of 20+ years, a friend of 7+ years, and a new friend whom I met about a year ago. All of us share the same mindset of racing, that it should be fun! No stress, no yelling, just have a good time. Read more…

Today ended the 6 race series “Will Run For Beer“. I had done 5 of the 6 events which is all I needed to qualify for a “free” jacket. Mia and I headed over to Newmarket for the festivities. It was an absolutely beautiful day for a race this morning.
I was a little nervous as to how my legs would feel. Friday night Paul, Freestyle and I ended up doing a night ride at Elm Brook State Park until almost 10:30 at night. Saturday Mia and I did a 34 mile road ride, so today I was a little nervous for how my legs would feel. Turns out theY felt pretty darn good. Perhaps I am finally finding some fitness? Read more…
Mia and I headed to Bar Harbor, ME for the Memorial Day weekend. We left early Friday morning to a forecast for Concord that was supposed to finally feel like nice warm weather and get us out of the wind and rain that we had been stuck in for the month of May (and April and March, etc).
