New Happenings

A good deal of new stuff going on around here. A promotion at work has been the biggest. It comes out to less hours a week and more money. Yes, I'm extrememly lucky. It's a little bit more stress right now with the training but people have been telling me that I'm actually smiling at work these days so that's new. The downside to this has been missing out on 2 races that I thought I'd be doing til I couldn't ride anymore. ORAMM and Fool's Gold. It sucks but I'll be back at both next year. On the plus side. They're still going to let me have the vacation I asked for in September so I can visit family and participate in the inaugral Skool of Hard Knox 50. A 50 mile bike race around Choctaw Lake near beautiful Ackerman, MS. I was born in Ackerman and 75% of my family still lives in that area so this is a win/win for me. I'm also planning on doing the Swank 65 for the 1st time this Nov. The same guy(Todd) who does ORAMM does this one also so I'm looking forward to it. There's also a new to me race happening near Atlanta in October that I plan on hitting up if I can. I don't remember the name though. Sorry. Anyway, fun and exciting times ahead.
