A Placid Start
Well, this has been fun.
It's been about two weeks since I moved in here, and so far things have been going pretty well! It's been great training in a new locale, which has already established it as an athlete friendly region.
Things kicked off here with the Wilmington Circuit Race, feat. Leif Nordgren. Unfortunately, there are no pictures, but I can assure you that I wasn't pretty. I pulled with Leif for the first lap and a half, then fell to the back as he broke away. As I made my way to the front again, I fell hard going around a sharp right hand corner and
did landed a front-flip off of a gym mat. I ended up DNF-ing the race, was just too hard pulling myself that far back into the pack. But it was a learning experience.
Aside, from that race, I've been having quite a bit of fun around here. Training has been good, with a nice track tan showing up after a nice interval workout.

Also, the roads around here are amazing, great for rollerskiing. The River Rd (seen above), is main training thoroughfare in the area. That, along with Rte 86, make for a good workout area.

Plus, I got a new pair of skis. Thanks to Bryan Fletcher!
The other day, I got a good hike in with Silke, up Cascade and Porter Mountains. It was short, but not a bad climb!
