I'm approaching the end of a very big month with the finish on Sunday of the Tour de France. My work has been featured in the Wall Street Journal and Bicycling, and I've been interviewed on NPR's "Morning Edition" with Ari Shapiro. Also, I contributed a profile of Taylor Phinney, an American cyclist who will compete at the Beijing Olympics, to Forbes' coverage of the Games.

My feature story on the prison-trained dog program is out in 5280's April issue. Most media reports on the "Cell Dogs" programs focus on the dogs, many of whom are rescues saved from euthanasia and become adoptable companions and even service dogs. I wanted to focus on a different angle: how did the dogs help rehabilitate the prisoners?

More upcoming stories: the March issue of Outside will feature two articles - a look at companies in the outdoor industry that are going green (and how to tell them from the ones that are just wrapping themselves in an environmentally friendly marketing campaign) and a look at wool as the original "green" fiber. Fortunately, I got this in just before Esquire wrote the obituary for the word "green."

Also, the March issue of Maxim will have a short article as part of a health and fitness feature package - a guide to the human body. I wrote the section on blood. And no, I didn't get to interview Rachel Bilson or anything. Sorry.

Some upcoming stories: the October issue of 5280 will have a short Atmospheres piece on the Forest Service's tentative plan to close the Monarch Crest Trail to mountain bikers. The November issue of Men's Journal will have a Health and Fitness lead on the "usual suspects" - all the stuff we love to eat that's bad for you. Or is it?

Big day - published a guest blog on Freakonomics (the web site for the NY Times bestselling book) on why we shouldn't legalize sports doping, and appeared on Colorado Public Radio during "All Things Considered" in a Q&A on the Tour de France and doping.

My freelance magazine writing class at the University of Colorado somehow got popular; I've got 20 students and a waitlist. Hopefully I'm teaching my new contemporaries, not replacements...

Check out the May issue of Bicycling for a Q&A with Joe Fowler, a U.S. Army sergeant and dog handler who served in Iraq and lost his K-9 partner and another soldier when their Humvee hit an anti-tank mine. Fowler sustained burns over 54 percent of his body - the worst on his hands and arms. His number-one goal in recovery? Ride a mountain bike again.

The class I'm teaching on freelance magazine writing for the University of Colorado's Continuing Education department will be offered again this summer and fall. I think I'm learning as much as my students.
