So I Wanna Try Something Different

Okay so earlier this year (February) I purchased a Kona Cross bike due to the fact that the ride would be best suited for a bike like that on roads in my area.  Some of you may not like this and I get it, but I am going to do some Cyclocross races this fall/winter.  It's been something I've been thinking about for a while now and with the re-kindled relationship I have with running on grass and dirt, I think this will be right up my alley.

Had my first practice on Wednesday with Ben Koenig, Casey Hildebrandt, Matt Block and Justin Braathen.  The touture on the hot laps was the most fun in a long time.

I will of course still race my mountain bike, but I need to mix it up.

May not like it? What's not to like?

One thing to keep in mind -- not hatin', just sayin': Cyclocross is *not* running. It's sprinting. Full-out, for like 20 seconds at a time.

You'll never have more fun hurting yourself. Ever.

@ Chris, I know, my runs have purpose with sprinting up each hill. I feel like I want to get back to just going out and redlining my heart rate like the good old cross country days.
