Earthquake!

I'm living on a fault line. The world around me is changing constantly, sending waves of disturbance through the predictable, orderly existence that I've built for myself.  From time to time, my world is rattled by an event of a magnitude so powerful that it results in a irreversible shift in priorities. It's disruptive, but I've come to embrace it and, occasionally, seek it out.

At one time, I was concerned that I might not want to get on my mountain bike again for a while after TransRockies - but the opposite has been true. Last weekend, I mountain biked on Saturday and Sunday. On Monday, I took the road bike out, for old times sake, but was distracted by day dreams of car-free trail riding.

I find myself looking ahead to an eight hour enduro near Moose Jaw this weekend and a four day epic in Costa Rica in November. I've also been making a short list of potential dates of interest for 2008 - Cascade CreamPuff, Test of Metal, Rat Race to name a few...and the list is growing.

If you're going to have an addiction, mountain biking sounds like a pretty good one to me!
