Sunrise on Tam, with Sam, with no Ham... Damn...


"In wilderness is the preservation of the world"
       - Thoreau



Some pics from a fun sunrise run with Tam.  There was a lower later of cloud so it was like we got to see the sunrise, then set all within 10 min.

Ashland for Thanxgiving!


A few weeks after getting KOed on my bike.  My parents flew into town!  Boy were they surprised to see me.  We got an AirBnB in town and spent 6 days in Ashland over Thanksgiving.  We got to see a lot of old friends, feast on a lot of meals, go up to the snow, and I got to do a lot of trail running. 













Lot's of morning runs:

First day in the BC: Round Top!


Kicked off this season with a fun surprise.  Sena, Sam and I's stars lined up and we decided to head to Carson Pass to check out this "banger" early season that we were missing... 

We left at 4:30 am.  Kevin & Laura's U-Haul (which was empty) was stolen at around 4 am... 
ah... miss this house. 

Looking back at the crux... this was pretty steep here... 
here's a pic of it before... let's see if you can see the rock I scraped off... 
See?  
Continuing down the slope... 
And looking back up the other two entrances... 
Here's Sena going for a double front flip... or not... 
We kicked off a tiny slide.  Wind packed, nothing too scary.  
Scenes from the weird formation on the lake...
Bye bye Round Top!
Back at the car, 30 min before sunset.  
there was an epic sunset on the drive home.
Had a nice meal here... I can still taste the beers in the frosty mugs...

K.O.-ed


Something I do think I'm invincible... and I get carried away thinking I'm in a video game just bouncing from one obstacle to another with no thought toward any kind of possible consequence...

And it's probably a good thing I don't remember anything about this... but boy this sure looks scary now that I'm looking at pics of it from 2.5 months ago.  Early one Tues morning, I donned on my brand new kit and met up with c510 crew for the Tues Tunnel loop... and on the first 50 ft from the meet up spot I slipped on something and I was over the handlebars and on the ground.  I was with a big crew, this happened early on in the ride, and was with a doc... quite thankful for these facts.   


not gonna enlarge some of these pics... here's how Kimbo found me at Highland hospital. They took some X-rays, catscans, etc... and found a broken rib... from a month ago.  This injury was quite weird and it never hurt.  I was kinda surprised myself, but the nurses were shocked.  
Not sure how, but my fitbit was destroyed!

The first two days back I slept for 14+ hours.  My bell got clanged... 
here's my blood spot 2 days later... 
EBMUD was working on that sewer lateral down there and my front tire hit something... 
1 mo later
2 mo later...
