So It Begins

Only five days remain before the beginning of the cyclocross season (well technically four but I start on Sunday) and to be honest I'm freaking out right now. I currently live with my parents but as of the Sept 21 our house is, well, no longer ours. They've sold it (it only took 8 days on the market) and are downsizing to a smaller apartment. Having just turned 24 last Friday this seemed like the perfect time to move out on my own. I was just banking on the house taking a few months to sell - just long enough to get me through the cross season.

It's not as bad as it seems. I'm moving to Albuquerque NM sometime towards the end of the year. However as of 21st of this month I need to find a new temporary home. So far I haven't found anything suitable and the clock is quickly winding down. As you can imagine this is not helping my preparation for Nittany or Charm City. Not only do I need to find something in less then two weeks I have to find the time to move my stuff. Everything is mostly packed except for my clothes and essential riding/racing clothing, bikes, and tools. I'm fortunate to have an awesome boss who is going to let me store most of my things in the basement at our facility so at least that's taken care of.

This Sunday is going to be about enjoying the beginning of the cross season and hopefully beating my nemeses from Crossresults. If you should find yourself in the Trexlertown PA at 3:45pm be sure to swing by the velodrome and watch me and 100+ guys battle it out.

Thanks for reading

I got my name from a friend while playing a video game a long time ago and it just stuck. As if you couldn't tell from the picture I am a huge cycling nut, always looking for something harder.
