Irons in the Fire (a special post for Trent, hi Trent : )

Lots of irons in the fire lately. I'm gonna need them to stay warm at the Arrowhead.

The bike is all upgraded for the big dance in a little over a week. I can't say too much about it for fear of giving an advantage to the wily Charlie Farrow. Just kidding here are a couple of pictures. I'm gonna be at the back of the pack anyway : )

In other news Jen is doing great with the little guy kicking stronger and stronger everyday. I think he might be a cyclist with those strong legs : ) Time will tell. That's for him to decide anyways. As for Jen she has a huge beer belly going on right now : ) March 27th can't come soon enough. I've been watching plenty of Snoop Dogg's Fatherhood to prepare : )

As if a winter ultramarathon and a baby weren't enough. We decided to buy our first house as well. We are closing on February 8th. Right after getting home from the Arrowhead. Then it's lot's of painting, moving and getting the baby's room ready for his arrival. Too much fun. I should have lots to blog about though. So stay tuned. I'll try and post again before the Arrowhead, but if not follow all the action on the Arrowhead Forum. Later.

Congrats on the new house, Vino and Jen! Just in time for the little guy.

I'm planning on being in GF Feb 15-17. We'll have to get together. Maybe another Hub night or something so you can tell me all about your A135 adventure.

We have been waiting to hear about the baby. Becca is very worried that the baby will have no daddy after the big race.
