we got the training camp down in sg, 60 today, jersey and arm warmers, shorts. you get the picture. ok brandon here was over dressed. but hes like 5% fat. im packin blubber like an arctic seal so i dont need much winter gear.
i feel a bit better now, better than 5 hrs ago i was blown.
these 2.5 hr rides feel like 5 used to.
i'll probably feel better in a few months.
yesterday we rode on the virgin rim, today was west desert and tomorrow probly more out there. it looked like it was a bit muddy out around stucki a few days ago based on the mud tracks, but now its mostly dried out.
the condo down here is $8 each a night, so if any of you keep wondering how guys with no jobs get to ride all day, watch tv and face book. thats how. its not hard to figure out, the hard part is to find a condo for $25.
brad and brandon ride more hours than i do, like 5 each. i cant handle that. utah hill to mesquite, multiple laps around fun sections of green valley. if i go 3 i cant walk for an hour.
tiesto new years eve, thats goin to be kick ass. so warm it up with this.
heres some oppressive news from atrain

my predictions are kind of shoe ins and easy.
compton, what fool wouldnt pick her?
todd wells. is another easy pick.
he won barely against j pow last week, but hasnt been racing much this cx season.
its going to be snowy, icy, muddy and slick as .....
these conditions fit him well, and hes going fast so thats how i see it.
ali g, masters. another easy pick.
hes a favorite for the age grouper class, and i dont see how he can lose in slick muddy conditions such as these.
thats my 3 groups, so lets see the predictions come true, nostradamus style.
early in the morning im getting chauffeured to bend, the cyclocross nationals.
many from 801 will be lining up for an hour of pain.
i will be there in camo, with an air horn. giving prize money. livin large, you get the idea.
hopefully ali g can get the stars n bars. hes had an impressive run the last 2 months.
i wish luck to my friends team rico, atrain, dr x, dayna, kathy, krafty, jennie, ali g, the cottles, mitchel p. and im sure i left out a few, but thats all i know whos going.
i will be submitting a short report and race results for most of the races to mtbracenews.com with shannons help.

the mind says you have a lot left, the body says ya 2 yrs ago maybe. take it easy.
dec 5th, yes its time to watch cable for 7 hrs.
i guess were going to vegas to win some money. this usually doesnt turn out well for me so i'll just stick to the one bet of 2 g's and lay down on red.
win or lose, i have to walk away. cuz i owe chippo 2 g's and he wont like me losing his money.

We happened to be driving through rural Idaho at the time, and he pointed out the cows in the field and said, "They look like happy cows to me."
As a hard core vegetarian who had researched the ugly facts of meat processing, I didn't see happy cows. Rather, I saw miserable prisoners awaiting a cruel and inhumane death.
How could we be looking at the same scene and yet see it so differently, I wondered?
When I worked as a market research analyst, my job was to compile statistical findings in report form. Sometimes I'd write something like, "Only a third of registered voters support the proposed tax increase for education." And my boss would say "What do you mean 'only a third?' A third is a lot."
The difference in our perspectives was our vibration. I saw things through a different filter than my boyfriend and boss did.
That's important because the filters we see through (i.e. the vibrations we flow) affect our manifestations. In fact, what we want might already be here, but we're not seeing it because we're not dialed in on that vibe!
Here's a recent embarrassing example:
My new renters called to inform they'd be a few days late on the rent. No big deal, I said.
But after hanging up the phone, my gremlins had a heyday with me. "Everyone was right - being a landlord sucks! Late rent, heaters going out, neighbors complaining out loose dogs - this is awful."
Since I did nothing to correct gremlin thoughts, and with my "being a landlord sucks" glasses firmly in place - guess what I saw? More problems and hassles with being a landlord.
In fact, I didn't even see the rent payment come in (that they actually paid early)! For two weeks I checked the account, yet didn't register $1200 sitting right there in black and white. I just kept calling the property manager about missing rent!
(It wasn't until tenants confirmed they had a receipt in hand that I began to question my gremlin thoughts. With those glasses off, and dialed on an easier vibe, I could finally see what was there all along that gremlin glasses blinded me to.)
I've had clients want a trustworthy and loving companion, while they tell me about the fun time they're spending with a best friend or ex lover. And drop dead gorgeous women wanting to have beautiful bodies that they're already sporting. And nervous millionaires wanting to experience financial abundance.
How could they be so blind as to not see what's already right here?!
The fact is many of us are good at seeing what we expect or what we fear rather than what we want. The trick is to get conscious about purposely looking for the good news and things going right and the evidence of desires unfolding.
Give it a try for yourself! Put on your "got what I wanted" filter this week, and see how different the world looks. Or try on the "life is good" glasses, and watch the world transform before your eyes!
(After trying on Dale's "happy cow" glasses for a while now, I am finally seeing a lot of contentment out there in the fields.)
We get whatever we look for, which is why it's so important we grow skills in seeing what we want, seeing what's right, and seeing what's working. Don't be surprised if you find it really was there all along.
