Engaged Yes, it is true. I'm finally engaged! After nine years together, I have come to the conclusion that she is "the one". I'm soo lucky that she is as patient as I am. Not sure about the details yet. We're thinking a winter wedding maybe. I told her to just tell me when and where, and I'll be there :) Anyway, it's been a busy holiday season. Brian came back to the homeland last weekend. We had a big turn out for Hub night. Except the grill was closed again. That's two time's in a row with no "Hub Burger". It was still a lot of fun. I went to my parents for Christmas at Lake Sarah. Good to see the family for the second time this year. Hi Mom and Dad! It was great to see the expression on everyone's face when they realized Jen was wearing an engagement ring. Lots of "It's about time" being thrown around. On a biking note. I'm starting to amp up the training for the Arrowhead race at the beginning of February. I'm going to try and slowly build milage the next four weeks. Then take a trial run out to Lake Sarah at the end of the month. It's about 140 miles round trip. I'm planning on riding there, camping out overnight, then riding back. I should be able to work out any remaining gear issues on that ride. Well, I hope the holidays treated everyone well. Thanks for all the congrats on my engagement, and have a great New Year's if I don't blog before then. Drive safe! Good night.
