Indiana Living Green continues to do me a favor by printing my articles. My latest for them features Ball State's new geothermal heating and cooling system, one of the world's largest. Big ups to my alma mater. It was great to get back to campus for an afternoon, but it's a bit disconcerting how young the students are now. It's like they're letting 12-year-olds into college. Thought about hitting one of my favorite drinking places from back in the day, but I didn't want to be that creepy old dude.
The second article was posted by my friends at USA Cycling, discussing finding ways to train when you're short on time. I need to follow the advice in this piece; people think that now that I'm a freelancer, I have unlimited time to be out on my bike. Not true, unfortunately. In fact, the last two weeks I was barely able to ride between finishing a lengthy Gen Con preview for NUVO -- look for that next week -- and spending time with my visiting nephew.
This week I should have a little more time to ride as I prepare for Saturday's state championship Mass Ave Crit. (If you go, look for me to finish in the middle of the bunch sprint yet again.) Pick up a copy of NUVO Wednesday and read my thoughts on the local women's field and a profile of Marian coach Dean Peterson.
