I was in Mexico two weeks ago for a week of kiting and surfing with Missy and friends. I can’t get enough warm weather and waves after a long winter on the road. We scored some good swell while in Mexico, and rode some fun waves. Nothing beats being in the ocean after the winter season.
I’ve been back in Aspen the past weeks focusing on my real estate activities and riding my bike daily. It’s nice to be home for a while. I’m spending a lot of time on my bikes this spring, shedding the winter layer and laying a good aerobic and cycling foundation, so I can hammer this summer. I’m registered and got into theÂ Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race Aug. 14th. I’m excited to participate and go for it. I rode up to Maroon Lake this evening with my friends Jon and Craig. Spring has finally arrived in Aspen after a prolonged winter. This week has been perfect riding weather.
I’m giving the commencement address at Basalt High School’s Graduation ceremony this weekend. I want to nail it, so I’m working hard to make sure my speech is dialed. I am honored to share my story and message with the graduates. Earlier this week I helped launch our new CKF Donor Dudes Educational Video at A.H.S. It was a great success. I’m so proud of the video project. Check it out if you haven’t seen it atwww.chrisklugfoundation.org.
