I know it's been a while since my last entry. Big 'stuff' has been going on with the CA Carpenters. We've made some decisions and it looks like we're going to go through with a major project Bonnie and I have wanted to do for some time. Together along with the help of a few talented friends we are going to put on an addition to our home. Our friend David designed the addition and will be helping with the construction process. Some former and current students along with the occasional friends, family and neighbors will be helping with the actual construction. Our hope is to have it in a 'livable' state when school starts up in September. Here is a look at some of the drawings.

Because of the scope and magnitude of this project my racing is taking a bit of a backseat. I really want to enjoy this process with Bonnie and the others working with us. I know I could not do that if I was fretting about not getting out for rides and runs. Yep, I said runs. Along with the addition to out home am adding running to my racing. My goal is to compete in the Death Vally Cup. To do that I need to race in three 100 mile running races before I qualify for the Badwater 135. With that I need to keep my cycling resume up as well to be considered for the 508. That makes this a very long term goal.

As you might guess this blog will take on a different sort of flavor. I'll be talking about a different kind of hammering, but I think that's o.k. A good life is a balanced one.

Hammer on!
