The Mullet Fall Classic receives nomination!!!

Cool news for The Mullet Fall Classic mountain bike race that I host.  I got an email yesterday from Iowa's Momentum Magazine saying....

Good morning, Bruce.  

I am emailing with some exciting news -- the readers of Iowa Momentum have selected the Mullet Fall Classic as the winner or runner-up in  "Top Mountain Bike Race" in our first annual Reader's Choice Awards.   This is a prestigious honor that you should most certainly be proud of.

That's good news indeed!  Thank you to all who voted for The Mullet.  I'm already busy at work to make this year's October 6th event even better for you. 

More good news for The Mullet!!

Two new additions for this year thus far.  The event will be the State Championship for the IMBCS and conducted under the USA Cycling sanctions.  YesThe Iowa State Championship!!!  A few more steps and protocols to make that happen, but I think it will all be worth it for everyone.


Yesterday called for 30 minutes on the bike in the morning and weights and core work for workout #2 in the evening.  I was a bit lethargic from a long and exhausting day at work, getting home late and drained - but I managed to do all the required work and finally ate dinner around 8 pm.  And I am happy to report that my digital scale claims I have achieved my goal of parity with regard to body weight.  I am now back to exactly what I was last Friday before a weekend of indulgence.  We're talking about 2+ pounds here, so I'll try not to let that happen again.

Today and tomorrow are fairly easy training days to set me up for big mileage this weekend.  Looks to be 43+ and sunny on Saturday.  We've had 2 days of melt already and today and tomorrow will continue to melt everything off setting this weekend up for outside riding.  Sunday will be 51, but I'll have to ride in the rain (which I don't mind).

Big project due on Friday and Monday at work, so I'm burning the candle early and late every day to accomplish it.
