Back at it

Back in November, I was honored to be selected for the John E. Peckham Memorial Scholarship. Since then, I've been training much more consistently, especially for winter. I'm really looking forward to this season, and figured I'd go all in. So I got a TT bike:

And have been riding a bunch in the NorCal rain, which was fairly drenching over the past few days. I think I'm going to open up with a TTT in February, but might do a MTB race just for fun this coming weekend. For now, I'm happy to dial in my pedaling technique and get more comfortable riding in inclement weather while building my fitness.

Things I really like now:
25mm tires
Gore-Tex jackets and gloves
Rain bikes

MTB right now sounds like mud wrestling with wheels.

Congrats, good luck and have fun this season!
