Getting back in the swing of things

Well we are about a month into 2011 and things are starting to roll for the 2011 season. Just finished the first 3 weeks of training and it feels good to get back into shape, kinda.
This past weekend went to go see my new Nephew. Pretty unreal I am an Uncle but pretty sweet at the same time. While I was down in the front range got my bike fit by Diamond Peak PT in Loveland. I am so glad I got that done. Did a quit a bit of changes on my position so I am looking forward to getting that dialed in. I believe it will make a huge difference this year to actually have the right fit instead of just guessing on everything.
Now I am currently still looking for a place to live in GJ. Might hear back today on a place that I hope we get. Very close to campus which will be very nice.
With school starting,being a Uncle, looking for a place to live and getting confused in school and training hard Conor and I are putting together our home collegiate race the Mad Cow Classic which will be held in GJ April 9th and 10th. Open to anyone who wants to challenge themselves. There is a lot going on right now but it is keeping me busy and I think that is a good thing.

I can't believe it is already 2011. I am excited and uncertain of the season to come. I am looking at some bigger races and hopefully some good results in 2011. I took about 3 weeks total off exercising after cross nationals and a long season of road, mountain and cross races. It felt really good to refuel the engine. Now I am running, yes running a little bit. I would love to be riding but I left all my cycling gear back in Junction so I wouldn't be tempted to ride earlier then I was suppose too.
So the new plan now is I will be going back to school. Never thought I would say that but I am going to continue to be a college student and pursue my MBA. I am excited to continue to be living in Grand Junction and racing the collegiate scene again.
One problem right now is I don't have a place to live when I go back to Junction because I was not planning on going back to school and so we are looking for a new place. I am fortunate to have a place to live for 3 weeks when school starts but then I need to find a new place to crash. A couple of options are in the works and I hope they work out.
