coachseiji The other day ended with a walkabout collecting wildflowers, then noticing "moon come back." Sequoia then demanded "dada sit" so we could say "hi night." I used to be mortified that "there I was on the mountain, trail, cliff, Baja" moments would be replaced by "there I was, changing a diaper, stuck at home." I now realize that the latter moments or moments like this pic are in addition to, not replacing, the highlight reels of my life. They are also more poignant than any adventure I have had thus far. Thanks buddy and see you soon! 10h

coachseiji The real secret to @andrewshortmx29 starts this SX season...tutoring from Emma Short. We have a contract and she's on retainer so don't even try. 2d

coachseiji Sequoia just displayed independent primate learning behavior. She said she had to eat bugs, broke off one straight stick and one bent stick and poked them into knotholes to get her bug fix. I have to assume her monkey friends taught her. Well at least I know she will never starve. 3d

coachseiji Good times on the trails today with @nathanlynnalexander a little wet but nice to see water in the normally dry creeks and fun to bomb across them. Good day today with the crew. Thanks @kuatracks @epicbar @skratchlabs @honeystinger for helping me get through the fun today! 3d

coachseiji Due to a rift in the time space continuum, I shifted to an alternate reality where I threw hand and foot jams, placed gear on lead, scaled slabs and thoroughly enjoyed it. Well, most of it. Physically beat but mentally charged. 4d

coachseiji That was a super hard fought 9th...no Holeshot this time but a good start, jostled well in the first few turns but went down late in the first lap. Got up and charged hard to salvage the top 10 finish. Rode well and that's racing! 6d

coachseiji Meanwhile at home, my wife dug these popcorn kernels out of Sequoia's nose, one from each nostril. Usually I can see the logic of things she does. I have been mulling it over since it happened yesterday and I'm stumped. Was it fun, did one of our pets do it? I have no answer this time but I'll keep thinking on it lol 6d
  •   unospeeder At least it wasn't pennies 6d
  •   unospeeder Or quarters 6d
  •   justinmartin117 I think she was thinking...these are big boogers and I'm going to put these in and dig them out. Some plans don't go as planned but it was an adventure. Haha 6d
  •   georgiaalbertson Oh bless her!!! 6d
  •   hahsshort Maybe she wanted to keep them and did not have a pocket? 5d

coachseiji So much work goes on behind the scenes, not only on race day but every day. Drivers, mechanics, office work, tons of essential tasks to keep this show on the road. @nathanlynnalexander prime cog in the machine. 6d

coachseiji En route to the Santa Clara SX, thinking about my everyday hero of the week. Our Khat..lost an eye as a kitten due to a hawk plucking her up by the head and dropping her on hot as Hades pavement. As you can imagine, a bird shadow has to be terrifying. But, man, there's a huge world out there and the hell if she's missing it. She's wary, there are lots of birds out right now, but she's been pushing fear aside and checking out the world for herself. Hero status to me. 1w
  •   james_mellinger I've never met you or that cat @coachseiji , but I love that cat!! Consider this a high five and some ear rubs to her! 1w
  •   tedarnold You lost me at cat lol. We thought @d1bicycles cat got hawked when she lost her eye, until we found another cats collar. his name was Leo. 1w

coachseiji Got totally trapped in accounting hell but escaped momentarily to pull down on some plastic @austinrockgym. Working on weaknesses which include underclings, gastons and mantles...only like half the moves required to be a successful boulderer lol. Gotta thank @onnit for the recovery goods: Hemp Force protein, MCT oil and Healing Salve! 1w

coachseiji Rare under my watch, clothed and bathed. Picking flowers in the yard. Her second 3 syllable word was "bluebonnet," her 1st was "excited." I'm good with that. 1w
