Time for the wrap up…and you had better grab a snack. I woke Saturday near my daily 5 o’clock time to have breakfast and put some new music on my iPod. The 30 minute fun run was going to be starting at 7 and I wanted to be ready. Most every... Read more

Another week in the books and new things learned. When I jumped on the scale Saturday it showed 254.2 or a loss of 3 pounds, but it wasn’t actually. My lowest weight was two-weeks ago at 253.4 and last week showed a huge plus on the scale to 257... Read more

This past week has been full of interesting things. DW (TAMZTIME) decided to fix some new Spark recipes since she can’t tolerate eating chicken daily. It was tough for me to work in these new meals since I’ve rationed out my daily calories among... Read more

Ok, it’s ride report time and forgive me now because it’s quite lengthy. This ride was way more important for what it stood for than all the training that was put in. ALL of the money that was raised goes to The James Cancer Clinic in Colum... Read more
