The Yucky riding weather has arrived. It's time to think about heading down to St George for some ride time. Well, if and when you go, I've got a place for you to stay. 1 and 2 BR condos are available in the Sports Village Resort which is less than 1/2 mile from the race course, Zen trail, Bear Claw Poppy and more! And for next month all my readers can get 20% off. Check it out here!

If you've got 3 minutes check out the home made video of the resort. You'll notice the "Sunny" St George video- is cloudy. Go figure that of the only 5 days or so of clouds per year, the time I went down to do it was cloudy. Think it'll go viral? :)

"The team" after my fifth and last lap- Carson, Keith, Ty and I

I am sure most of us usually feel like we are juggling several things in our lives at once and most of the time we just get it done and keep juggling. Well since the 24 hours of Moab I've felt like those things were starting to fall down on top of me. PLUS I got one of the nastiest colds I've had in a long time since the race. No I am really not trying to complain, but just wanted to provide an excuse for getting this report out 10 days late. I'm sure you've all gone on with other things by now.

The short of it was that we got 4th in the Men's Veteran (35+) category. We were 5 minutes out of 3rd and just 10 minutes ahead of 5th.
The long is that it was one of the fastest and funnest 24 Hours of Moab I've done! This I believe is my 7th race down there. The weather was perfect and the course was one of the fastest. We had both new and old faces in camp and supported nearly 50 people. The Billings family managed to feed the whole lot of us with the best tasting food yet.

The awesome assistants!

Except for the start of sore throat and cold, I felt great, had my lines down on the technical stuff and had my fastest times ever. AND this was the first year I didn't run the Laman's start. Our newbie, Ty did just great using my strategy and his Tri experience to get a good position out front. I was happy with my first lap of 1:13 but even happier with my 5th lap at 1:15!

Look at those Maddoggers run!

And last but not least, Scott the best supporting Chef, husband, team assistant and dad ever!

All in all again this was the best way to torture one self- with great weather, food and friends!

I just thought this was a cool picture- not really burning down the camp
