Dear Lee,

how have you been? Sorry it's been so long since I've last written. I hope you're doing well and are having fun with your land. Any Mtn bike trails yet??
So, I've been having a good time here in Boulder. Offseason was great (my first in 3 years), and I was able to recharge mind and body over the past couple months. I got in some epic hikes and a little cross racing too. I may have to give the latter up though because I seem to find the ground with my face every stinkin time I ride that bike! It's been fun though. In my first race, I think I beat 4 or 5 finishers which was a moral victory. And in my 2nd race, I was beating a few guys as well before I crashed out (and took Logan with me, haha). Friend Rob Nagler took some pics of the first race and there are a few of me. You can just FEEL my speed emanating through your screen. However, now it's time to get down to business. I've been training for 2 weeks now and am starting to remember what it's like to ride a bike everyday again. I love this time of year because you get to dream big and imagine how good you're going to be in the coming season.
In other momentous news, I moved to south Boulder. I hate moving but this was a step up for me. I'm officially moved out of the closet! Happy days! Though in reality, I probably won't sleep as well in a room with windows.

We had our first snow last week. And I am trying to brag when I say that this pic was taken 200 ft. from my new front door.

This was taken a full block away from my place. Oh and did I mention it's 65 and sunny today? Word.
Take care, General CB!
