Olympic Anticipation

July 10, 2012


What happens when a dream of yours actually comes true? I mean, really comes true… My bedroom growing up was a tiny little room used as the families’ baby room. One of my earliest memories of this room takes place when I was roughly 7 years old. I took the small (like 10 inch) t.v. […]

Photo Blog: Discovering A Love Of Spring In Korea

April 18, 2012


Never did I fall for this particular season more than when I was in Korea. Before then, Spring was really just a period of nuisanced indecision. Growing up, I would sit at Jeff’s baseball games, huddled-up hoping the snow stops enough to see how he’s playing; in high school, I battled four years of varsity […]

The 2012 Butte 100 Mountain Bike Race: On It’s Way

April 11, 2012


There’s a  little mountain bike race we call the Butte 100, that I’ve found to be consuming a bit of my time lately; but that’s a good thing.

Our goal: creating the fourth guide book for QWick Guides. This guide diverges a bit from the previous editions of QWG; veering away from local trails and trail systems. We set out […]

The Poetry Of Night Skiing

January 9, 2012


  Moonlight dances diamonds strewn across virgin snow stolen only by the dark fingers of a shadowy thief. The world whispers a caressing breeze across my neck, gripping every hair within its reach to guarantee I should not soon forget. The temple glows quiet of corruption, while the eyes of pillage slide soundless over the […]

Peaks to Prairie Triathlon

April 21, 2011


I’m certainly not a triathlete—not even a racer–but this is my third “triathlon.” The Peaks (as us competitors call it) has become somewhat of an annual event for me. It’s an awesome race—well organized, in the beautiful mountain town of Red Lodge, wonderfully formatted, great test of achievable athleticism—and perhaps the best of all… you […]
