I'm finally back on the bike after the best season of skiing I think I've had. It's nearly July and now I'm behind schedule and cramming for the @tusharcrusher @ltraceseries and some other bike related adventures in the fall.
Pictured are my sweet bike stand (aka @johnmalfatto 's land cruiser) and my back up Crusher bike, now with SRM power thanks to @contenderbicycles

Three wet rats that don't know when to quit.

The Tiny Tots track meet was this evening and I'll have to say that I'm quite proud of the boys. Teague surprised us all with some decent speed and gritty determination in his come from behind 100m dash win.
Lars learned what it's like to run through pain after trying to full on sprint the 400m dash. His last 100m down the home stretch was as gutsy as any run I've seen as he had tears streaming down his cheeks but ran hard through the line.
My boys are way tougher than I am....they must surely get that from their mom.

Into the hellishly hot light.

Here's a short video from our speed attempt on Liberty Ridge last Sunday. The first hour and a half and the final frantic run through the woods are missing but the good stuff is there.
Music: Frightened Rabbit
Climbing and skiing: @jasondorais

Normally we enjoy taking a minute to look around and take pictures, but there wasn't time for that yesterday. In an attempt to be efficient, from St Elmo's pass onward, I kept a GoPro on and used the voice activation to take photos.
I sounded like a crazy man yelling at my camera but I'm glad to have gotten a few pics. This photo is of @jasondorais climbing the Carbon Glacier with the Liberty Ridge above him.

@jasondorais and I climbed the Liberty Ridge on Tahoma (Mt Rainier) and skied the Emmon's back to the car in 7:07 this morning.
We were on the verge of cramps for the last three hours but never seized up...they are imminent on the drive home.
Huge thanks the following: @mountainlessons for putting me in touch with @ethanlinck who put me in touch with @toddtsuyoshi who let me borrow his race skis at the last minute as the mission was aborted yesterday by a broken ski on the approach.
Also thanks for all the other offers from around the Seattle area!

I made the boys hike and run on the flank of Grandeur Peak with me this evening. Lars was the strongest, then me, then Teague.

Yesterday in the Wasatch with @jasondorais @slcviking and @travis_haussener

@slcviking promised we'd be skiing from the bridge. He lied.
The walk in the woods made for a pleasant warm up though.
