It's the most crazy time of year

So I find myself bikeless (no xc bike anyway) and I'm not sure I'm all that ready to get out in the cold and the dark anyway. And I'm just chompin' at the bit to get out on the snowboard. This is a rather tenuous time of year. I'm trying to take my lack of activity into account as I ponder that second donut, or that 5th beer.. :D

Don't get me wrong.. I'm not really worried about my weight.. but I did notice a little extra pudge around the waste last year over the winter, and I'd like to avoid that again this year. I'm not looking to lose weight, but I don't wanna put any extra pounds in that I'll have to lose to get faster next year..

This weekend I'll be going through a hiring clinic to become a snowboard instructor at Pine Knob.. I'm thinking it won't be too hard to get the job. I'm good on a board, like teaching, and can be counted on. Bring on the snotty 10 year olds... ;)

Looks like I'll be missing the Hodaddy Holidy Hines Hump. I was looking forward to this ride after hearing about last year's adventures, but between the cold and ice and the distance to get down there, I think I'll be staying home.. Besides, I gotta catch up with some non-biking friends.. they count too... ;)

So that about brings us up to date. Robert's Winter Riding Challenge Series starts soon.. I'm hoping to get a bunch more of those rides in this year. Stay tuned to find out ;)....
