Sometimes you eat the bear...

and sometimes it eats you. Shameless direct steal from Slowtwitch.com but originally from The Dude.  I've been ignoring the bike a bit of late as I prep for 30 mile mtn marathon.  I've never run 30 miles before, and it being off road might make it a bit trickier, but I felt like it was time to mix things up again and push out beyond the comfort zone.  It's worked, I've struggled a bit but it's meant a forced change in habits and made me get out to places I would have missed out on...

It's a week on Saturday... we will see who eats whom :)

Of course that's not the big news. Warwick's visit was brilliant and saw some trails ridden and beers drunk (7 bottles of Stella no less, more in 4 days than in the entire preceding 12 months). We were really lucky with the weather and hit Afan in perfect condition on Monday. Empty and perfect.

Charlie continues to be the most wonderful thing in the world, and no I don't have a problem with being an out and out 'happy dad'. He eats like me...

What of P? Well she's been doing the Cross I should have been fitting into the running (it'll come, don't panic). Clive has come up trups with two matching Euro-white Cube cross bikes. Ultegra'd up and speedy speed speed!
