I am passionate about bike racing and about sharing that passion with others. I am in it not just for the results, but the process of it all. An east coast kid who grew up on bikes, building "helltrack" in the backyard, I had an early love of the freedom a bike offered. Not much has changed. This blog is part training journal, part race reports, some writing, sharing, and photos. A teacher, traveler, and coach, I am driven by the things that make me push myself, ask questions, and seek out insight. I hope this blog gives some insight about training for cyclocross nationals, teaching, and balancing all this out with bike racing.
