Boise Day #2: Half Bogus Climb

Yeah baby! I set a new personal best - taking 59 seconds off of my previous best time - for the half Bogus Basin climb to the Forest Service sign today. Of course I had CarboRocket in my bottle. However, the secret weapon today was my Blackberry. How did my super phone help me climb faster? It was pumping out some sweet techno beats! Since wind noise isn't an issue while climbing, I maximized the volume of my speakerphone, started Umpacast #10, placed the phone in my handy iPod pocket in my jersey and enjoyed the high tempo music all the way up. Very cool and suprisingly loud, not to mention safer than riding with earphones.

Wow, I had no idea so many folks like umpacasts. Perhaps I'll get motivated for #11. I definitely have LOTS of new music. Congrats on the PR! Glad you were able to enjoy it on the new blackberry.
