Feeling Wintery

Skiing up Bear Canyon after work last night in 0 degree temps and fresh snow. It was fantastic! It is staying light a tiny bit later every day and I only needed the headlamp on the way back down. Getting these skis has been the best thing. Last year it hardly snowed and was so warm I was able to keep riding bikes all winter. This year it is real winter with snow and cold. So skiing it is!

suf·fer·ing (s f r- ng, s f r ng). n. 1. The condition of one who suffers; the bearing of pain or distress. 2. An instance of pain or distress. 3. The Crusher in the Tushar bicycle race: 70 miles and 10,400ft elevation gain. 

Hell of a race to enter for someone who is as bad at climbing as I am. As of 7pm this evening I have signed up for this ridiculous event. Apparently racing the Butte 50 3 times got old and I required a change of pace. Being that it is in Utah and I am in Montana, just getting to the race and back will be a challenging event in itself. Since I only have 5 hours of training in 2013 so far, I am only like 500 hours behind year to date, in order to not die at this race.
