happy '11 ya'll

last year kinda fizzled out for me. what with a house move and job change, knee failure, somewhere along the way i lost my outdoor fun mojo. only for it to be replaced with a seemingly never ending bottle of booze. it's strange looking back, it almost feels like a different person that ran over fells and rode twisting trails. but i do have photographs to prove it! and the move has given me a whole new play ground, while the job change will allow me to go back to skool. exciting times ahead.

it's been brilliant and inspiring reading others blogs over the past year. seeing folks complete their goals and challenges. crossing the land from coast to coast, ticking off peaks, riding in circles for as long as they can, over coming injuries and just generally getting out there and doing it. i've been vicariously living though their tales. so here's to an adventure filled 2011 for everyone. for me it's all about the B, baking, biking and bivvying.....and a knee caps crossed, hopefully a little bit of running.

see you on hills!
