Bend Video

So the video of the commercial for Bend below was taken last year and just came out. If you watch it the last scene with the " family" riding past the tree on the single tack is actually Steph and Ryder and Jennelle and I. We are playing the part of the classic family with 1 boy and 1 girl. It was actually shot about 2 minutes from our house at 5:45 am. we got there in the dark and he set up a boom camera on the trail and when the sun cam up at 6 we did the shot about four times. It looks so inviting but it was like 20 degrees out. so cold!!!!!!!! the end product for Bend was great though.

Since the trail fr the creampuff is in Oakridge Oregon trying to set a training weekend there for next week. Always makes sense to train on the course if you can.....also the picture explains why you would want to ride there....

game time

So training has shifted from a ski winter with heavy weights to more bike. The triathlon was a great race to come out of the winter for. As I am working with less trails now due to heavy snowpack the choices are fewer but as we are in Bend Oregon the poor choices are still better than most towns so no complaining. Hit Peterson ridge in Sisters last weekend followed up by a sweet road ride on a work lunchbreak of 20 miles in a little over an hour with Steph. good route with hills. i forgot my GPS watch so will map it next week.

we are now T-minus 81 days until the crampuff race......

off to the gym for my twice weekly Metcon with Caitlin

I will get the posts up a little more often as well :)
