Catching up!

So since I've been injured its been hard to get on here and keep updating my moto adventures! I did race Colorado Springs two weeks ago. I got 4th place which was great but I knew while there that I needed a few more weeks off to recover. The pain kept me from being as fast as i could be and I just could no longer go with passion. It didn't help that the shifting mechanism broke on my bike once again.

Now that I'm getting closer I'm really going to hit the workouts hard again and I'm going to race select tracks the rest of the season. My home track? I'm not sure yet. I've been getting really upset with these track promoters always screwing up a good thing. They always think that by making things harder to do will make people better racers? UMMM! NO! It drives people away from your track and makes them not want to play there.

This is a big gripe of mine all the time. But they will get their hint at the end of the season.... weather or not they take the hint or not is another story. I assure you. The two easiest tracks on the circuit (also the funnest to ride) will win track of the year. Those are the ones that separate one rider from another. Those are Brush and Milliken. But I'll not gripe about that too much. I'll just keep going to the track I want and not show to the ones I don't.

In the mean time I have a few picture to share with you. These are my practice and race photos since I have been back riding. ENJOY!

Need more rest time!

SO after racing to a 4th place finish this past weekend I realized I was not at the top of my game! Nor was I having the speed or fun because of it. So, I'm going to rest up a couple more weeks. (not mentioned here is that my bike is broke too, so its a forced rest for a bit)

This will be a good thing. I can skip a very intimidating track get the ole bike in tip top shape and rest my arm a bit more. I'm thinking one race this month will be it for me.... Maybe two. But anyhow! I will be posting more about this last race weekend tonight and I'll add some pictures of the weekend too. Just didn't want you to think I was forgetting the update!

Updates for the future!

So here is the newest update! I'm separating this blog from my fitness a little this is now going to be an exclusive Motoblog for you to enjoy. Weekly updates on my racing and riding adventures! This will be fun!

As for an update here. I went and put a few laps down at Two River Motocross down in Miliken, CO! Great track and great riding this past weekend. I was laying down some great laps until my bike decided it needed to take another nap on me and it kicked me off for another riding.

Don't worry nothing was broke this time but I did manage to become VERY sore again. I will rest up and prepare for a weekend of racing down in Colorado Springs.

I will have a full race report with photos this next week. Until then. Check out the new fitness log I have at

Back in the Race!

So, yesterday was my first time on the bike in 7 weeks! FELT GREAT! and I raced fairly well. Considering I'm still sore and stiff from the injury a 3 place and an 8th place to get 6th overall for the day... I'd say not bad. Now to get in some practice this next week or so and get on to the competition for the next race in two weeks in Colorado Springs. Thank to everyone for the support and I'm happy to be back.

Wonderful Chicken Wrap!

MMMMMMMMMMMM, MMM! Yep, that is the ONLY way to describe this one. The Chicken Ranch Wrap was a wonderful surprise my wife had all lined up for tonight's meal. And WOW for only about 300 total calories I'm feeling satisfied and my tummy is happy.

Here is how to make it. Grill up a small chicken breast, slice it, combine it with greens, tomato, drizzle with ranch and place in a whole wheat tortilla. AND ENJOY!

This is great and pair it with some fruit or a crisp raw veggie and you have yourself a nice filling meal that is just the right size. (Remember you don't have to feel like your gut is busting to be full and satisfied)
