Tax Day Specials @ XTerra

It's Tax Day here in the US, and XTerra is offering a one day special on many of their races to help cheer you up! Too bad entry fees aren't deductible (medical expense?).

I'm looking forward to the Boston Marathon in a few days, although I won't be able to give it my best shot thanks to an unexpected bike crash on Sunday. The scrapes and bruises are healing, but I've got some minor whiplash and my left butt cheek is still 25% bigger than my right. Too bad the Boston course doesn't turn to the left. ;-)

My thanks to Giro Helmets for their great products. This is the second time one of their helmets has collapsed correctly on impact and saved my noggin. Better than life insurance, I tell ya. I would much rather buy a new helmet and bike than try and learn how to chew again.

  1. Looks like someone is going to be clearing out their early oct schedule. congrats!

  2. Many institutions limit access to their online information. Making this information available will be an asset to all.

  3. New to your site. Probably late, but best wishes in the BM. I have just started to take on some trails. I am loving the difference already. Looking forward to future posts here. Take care, maybe just turn to the left as you run? lol

  4. Have you heard of the Dances with Dirt Trail Series? Started in Hell, Michigan and now events in Gnaw Bone, Indiana; Devil's Lake, WI; and Green Swamp, FL. Noticing a theme there? I'm trying to spread the word and found your site both entertaining and informative so thought you might be able to help. Please send an e-mail when you get a chance. Thanks and hope Boston turned out better than expected!
