Andrew Love’s Latest Entry- Where?

Andrew Love‘s most recent entry is called Where?. It’s an original and great post that covers a wide array of topics.

About the Utah Olympic Oval, he wrote-

It’s pure, clear, and feels like a virginal baseball diamond before spring training begins to tear upon it with frantic cleated intensity.

He describes the bike racing component of his training as being a ‘dash of brutality‘.

It’s surprising how much short track seems to improve everything else. It’s like this activity seems to supercharge the bodies’ capacity to “do”.

You MUST go to Andrew’s site to read the awesome explanation of the fork, knife, and spoon; it’s too good for me to copy and paste- he concludes his explanation, saying ‘It was one of those weird, skater moments that 99.9% of Humanity would just not get‘- photo from Andrew Love
