To Helena And Back

Today was a rest day for me, so what better way to spend it than sitting in a car for hours on end. I had to do a small presentation today in downtown Helena. The meeting was 45 minutes long, but the driving was eight+ hours. Nevertheless, Montana is so full of awesome that even just driving somewhere is a surreal experience.

In addition to the constant backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, I must have seen more deer today than in my entire life. To top it off, I saw my first group of wild Moose lingering beside the road. Luckily, nothing ended up on the front of my truck.

Besides getting some good business done, I also had a chance to visit Great Divide Cyclery and the Blackfoot Brewery. The Cyclery had a pretty good selection, including a beautiful Cervelo RS. Alas, I didn’t see what I was looking for(hint: it rhymes with “BMC”) and I left empty handed. However, the brewery did have plenty of what I was looking for!

Very yummy.


Alas, with a long drive back to Kalispell, I settled for just one and grabbed a growler for tonight. The low point of today was the sheer lack of healthy food options on the road. After going on nothing but a coffee and a Kashi Bar until 4:00, I caved in. Big Time. I swear, I didn’t know the Chicken burger at Hardee’s came with Bacon on it!

Oh well, guess I’ll just add some more time on the trainer tomorrow.
