Monday Mid-day

Got up early this AM to drop the 4Runner off at Toyota for leather, heated seats and remote start. Smooth drop off, but wow are they busy with recalls! Rental car provided is a VW mini van(good or bad dream?).

Loaded up the body with two pant layers and three top layers. Answer MTB shoes and Endura head and hands. Perfect set-up for the 30 degree weather. Managed one solid hour on the fixie. I can not tell you enough how excited I was to actually forget what hamstring was the one that used to keep my off the bike in 2009. As peeps prep for 24hr races, I keep my eyes set on tomorrow - 1+ hour.

Big Boy Job actually starts tomorrow...

Trans Iowa on the brain...

I finally have a day to rework my brain into cycling and Trans Iowa. What bike? What set-up? Drops or risers? Indoor or outdoor training? Let the posts start flowing and the training get busy. This year Trans Iowa had better be ready, because my mind is all I need.

Starting to review all of the video footage from 2009. Some really good stuff. You will be pleased.

Live Video Feed

Today is my first day as Elm Creative Arts School's "Artist-in-Residence". As for the live feed, I connected the video camera to the projector to be able to show the camera and my nose hairs up close without the need of 30 cameras.

The goal: Introduce Digital Cameras to the masses and learn students and staff how to upload and access photos on school computers. Finished product: ABC's of Art at Elm book to be created by 4th graders.

Free time: After I submit this post - Get to work on an 2009 EXPO video.

Working is fun.
