Yes, I am alive. I have been battling a month long strain of Bronchitis/ Allergy sickness. It started out just like a cold then progressively got worse. Cough, Nasal Congestion, Chest Congestion. Two weeks ago I was coughing on average 40 times a day. Today I have coughed once. I might have just jinxed myself. Other than that my weeks have been normal.
I worked for Jens at the conclusion of the 12 hours of Temecula series. The race is at Vail Lake in Temecula. The series consists of 3 races on slightly different courses. Jens raced his first 12 hour race (let alone his first MTB race) here in January and won! The second race (in June-ish), after placing an awesome 11th at the 24 hours in the Old Pueblo, Jens got 2nd place! Last month's race was the hardest by far. The climbing was brutal. Jens battled back and forth between 1st and 2nd. He finished the race in 2nd and clenched 1st place (Sport) in the series! Congrats Jens, I couldn't have done it without you! (hehehehehe.....)
More in awhile I need coffee.
