Putting the hours in on day job. 4 min double pole intervals followed by a long distance warmdown. Clear, cold weather and hard classic tracks a perk of the job somedays here on the South Island.

Short Summer Story

planned a trip
skiers in trusty subaru
salty water
surfboard rails soon in my grip

olympic day
could it be, a memory?
what'll I say
after the summer's all gone?

pacific city
imaginary white snow
along I roll
on highway one-oh-one

king of spade
consult with my chambermaid
says go forth
knows perfecting skills take work

breathe it in
sweet smell of life in full bloom
hebo awaits
nine mile hill climb time trial loom

cascade head
dragontail and ocean views
like one says,
"seek out and follow your muse"

new zealand
closes fast in frontview mirror
salt and sand,
any better way to say goodbye?

The End.
