Toddler Launch

"Toddler Launching" is the second fastest growing sport in the lower 48. You need one parent, one spawn and a whole lot of wrist snap. I snagged this photo from a website devoted to child tossing with a smattering of cyclocross images. It's insane the height some of those kids are getting. EXTREME!!!

Last night's cyclocross practice was a total disaster. Josh and I realized we have neglected the "running" aspect of our bimonthly training and were paying a heavy price. "How do you run with the bike?" "I dunno" "Well, I'm going home." "See ya!"

A cactus field sits in front of the first set of bamboo barriers:Pfft, running is for the birds and this guy. Augusta's race should be an exercise in futility yet crammed with style points galore. Crotchless skinsuits. Aero helmets. Let in soak in.... Anyhoo, that Leadville 100 movie is playing tonight here in Columbia at Sandhills around 8 PM. Not sure if I'll be able to make it but a few other Hawleyites will be milling around in the lobby looking for wayward Milk Duds strewn across the floor. Walk up, say "Hi" and offer them a handful of Milk Duds as a sign of friendship. Then taser the sucker back to the freakin' stone age!
