Vapor Trail Part II: The Race
I'm not going to lie and say that I wasn't nervous for this race. I was probably the most nervous that I've been in years. I knew it was going to be very hard. I tried to relax the day before the race, but it didn't really work. We left our house casually S...

In which I win a bike race in Colorado...
My 2015 racing season got off to a good start with a 9.5 hr finish at True Grit, but quickly turned "meh" with travel in April and June, and cancelled races in May. July, though, has been pretty good. So far I've raced twice, and both times have been really...

The first race of 2015
I'm always nervous for the first race of the year. This year was no different. Mrs. Geology realized about five days before the race that we hadn't made any travel or food plans; we knew we were driving over two days, but we had no hotel plans for the overn...

Almost racing time
I was going to write
about my opinions about flow trails, but every time I worked through my
arguments, I managed to convince myself that they were incorrect, so I'm
bailing on that. My thoughts, after thinking it over for the better part of a
week and a ha...

Going to get good at hundreds
If my entire goal this year is to become a better hundred mile racer, I think I'm on the right track. Last week, amid unexpected car repairs after sliding into two curbs while going around a snowy roundabout at low speed, I got in some pretty solid days on ...

Vapor Trail Part I: The Preamble
So I did Vapor Trail 125 . Well, most of it anyway. Before I go into a detailed account of my race, I'd like to start with this. A Request for Organizers/Promoters of Endurance XC Races Over my actually kind of long career of racing, I have had the pleasure...

Internet Blackout Weekend, or the most boring Moab post ever
Last weekend was 92Fifty's  2nd Annual Spring Moab Camp, and I decided to treat it a little differently than I have treated bike-related trips in the past. As soon as we arrived at our campground, I turned my phone's Ultra Power Saving Mode (A handy feature...

Places most people have likely never considered going: Boise, Idaho
When one considers vacation destinations, Idaho is generally not on the list. Other than skiers visiting Sun Valley, I'd wager that not many people visit Idaho, or even really know much about it (other than potatoes). Mrs. Geology and I had decided to take ...

I got pretty lucky this weekend. The snow that was forecast for Friday night/Saturday morning never materialized. I was a little worried when I did a short North Table Mountain loop on Friday that I wouldn't be seeing dirt for a long while, but I managed to...

The First Week in Trianing
Ladies and Gentlemen, Last week I pedaled a bicycle for six consecutive days. This is more than I have done probably since we moved out to Colorado, approximately 1.5 years ago. I didn't do any hard efforts other than my field test on Friday, so my legs are...
