If you are as observant as I hope you are you also have noticed that in the last few months I have neglected writing on this blog. That time is no more, I had a love affair with twitter and facebook (friend me or follow me) but it had no substance so I am back to you my loyal readers. It is a new year and I am working on a resolution to post on this acclaimed publication at least once a week. In analyzing which blogs are popular I have concluded that the most read blogs don't just focus on race reports like I have done in the past, instead they talk about anything and everything thus keeping their readers thoroughly entertained. So as part of my new blog plan for 2010 along with my traditional race coverage and ski tales I will also tell you all the amazing things that happen to a high school senior. Be excited!
For 2010 I will be racing for a new team, Kuhl clothing. Look for me in the stylish light blue. The other new thing for 2010 that I am backcountry ski touring. (I will relate yesterdays death march soon when I am recovered)
Some of you might want me to fill in the blanks in my life that have happened between posts they are here in bullet point form.
- Went to cyclocross nationals
- Raced and crashed twice killing my possible top 5
- Finished 14th
- Refused to think about race
- First ski tour
- More skiing
- Second ski tour
- Came to terms with my Cyclocross race
- Started training again
- Third ski tour (before mentioned death march )
I have had one constant fan of this blog, Danny the Manchild. Later this week I will have the Manchild superpost all dedicated to him. It will be epic.

Have been riding my mountain bike as much as possible the last couple weeks and it has been great, yesterday I struggled up the Canyon Hollow trail in Corner Canyon in the snow. It was awesome there wasn't a lot of snow and the ground was frozen solid so it wasn't muddy.
The pray for snow part seemed to work and I am looking forward to the ski season.
Watch this video of the race in Draper a few weeks ago when I had the hole shot and it was rainy, the only mud we have had so far this year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1VtXxQJQpA

the run up "Mt. Heber" every lap hurt
going down the Mt. wasn't as hard, but it was sketchy
This is when I was with the group and had friends going through the barriers.
This is after I got dropped and I had to run the barriers all alone.
I hope you notice I didn't have the tall socks this week, it was much to hot for them. It was much to hot for cross, think I got a little dehydrated. Pray for cold wet weather for every Saturday from now on.
Now for the week ahead planner. This Wednesday go watch the Utah High school cross country running state championships at Sugar House. I'm told to be there at 3:30. Go my friends that run!(I refuse to show school spirit on my blog!)(I like parentheses and exclamation points!) This Saturday you should all come and watch (that's you cross country team ) the cross races in Draper at the equestrian center on 1600 East Highland Dr.(13675 South), Draper, UT at the base of Corner Canyon. There will be races from 9:30am to 2:15pm. I race with the A group at 2:15.(I am taking the ACT again that morning so my racing might be a little off!)
Now the part about gas masks. Have you ever herd of a magical little place called the Army Navy outdoors store? I have, and I read their adds. They were selling surplus Russian military gas masks for only $13. It had the makings of an adventure. I journeyed to that magical land and purchased one just for fun. Then my sister came home and with her imac and photobooth we had some fun playing with it and some basic effects, enjoy.
You don't know what you missed.
Vote in my poll to decide what Halloween costume I will race in at the Halloween cross race at Wheeler Farm, keep in mind I would like to finish well so pick the costume you think would be least intrusive but still awesome.
P.S. I got my skis finally mounted up and tuned, bring on the snow!
P.S.S. The Pray For Snow Party will be a go for this year.
P.S.S.S. ( I really do like parentheses and exclamation points!!!)
I hope that you enjoyed this epic post.
