First MTB race

Did my first MTB race on Sunday. The Carl Ras MTB Challenge. I did the 25km route. It was super nice and I’m very happy with my time of 1:35. Definitely doing more mountain bike races from now on. It was super foggy and chilly in the morning but thankfully it let up as the race started and we got very beautiful and warm autumn weather. Unfortunately I dressed for the cold foggy weather so I was a sweaty mess at the goal line.

Today started out sunny and warm and is ending now with thunderstorms that, having not been on the weather report, I’m not prepared for at all. I went to work wearing shorts and t-shirt. Oh well, it’s fine, it’s only water after all. Work was good, we made good progress on the Thing I’m working on. Questions were answered and user-interfaces were built.

Took the long ride home from work today. It was super nice, had never cycled in that area before. Met some Icelandic horses too.

We took a walk today and passed upon Leftside. Leftside is this awesome part of Northside Festival where everything is free and people (though mostly the sponsors) bring beer, wine and snacks to share with everyone else. You also need to cross the river to enter.

Thanks for the past 5 and half or so years, Valtech. It’s been a pleasure.

Arrived at Billund for our flight to Stockholm. Gonna be a nice weekend to visit that city again.


Got my first pair of cycling shoes today on what feels like the real first day of spring here. Looking forward to learn how to not fall like an idiot while stopping on a red light.

Pair of Shimano cycling shoes lying in a balcony table. Cleats being affixed to them with a screwdriver. Glass of beer to the side. Stong sun on a spring day.

Signed up for again and set up some Indieweb plugins in my WordPress site. Now to see if this post will go from Icro to my site to Mb.

Loving the new Apple Watch Series 4, and the new iPhone XS (Tennis), and XR (Tenner) look great. Really looking foreward to WatchOS 5 and iOS 12. AirPower gone though, which is strange and makes me sad.

Went kayaking in Haven Lake today. It was super nice and chill.
