GoingNuts Part 2

I feel great. Yesterday, at the race, a few people asked how I was doing. The verbal answer was, "much, much better". This was acurate as far as how I'm doing physically. Mentally, I'm going batty. To feel physically "right" and have to take it ... Read more
Care To Guess Who Sold Me A Vuvuzela At A Race He Was Promoting?
Friday, October 05, 2012      4 comments

Soooo, Saturday I go heckle a bud in one of his first cx races. I've been advised to take a vuvuzela. Guess what? I bought a vuvuzela for $5 a couple years back. My bud, who also promotes races, thought he could cash in on the vuvuzela craze bro... Read more
This Really Hurts

I have a bud who is a well regarded race promoter in this area. He is also a USAC official so typically if he's not promoting and running a race, he's on the officiating crew. Even when he's an official he can find some way to heckle me when I g... Read more

This being cooped up crap is for the birds. Not being able to log any exercise last week and the week before just about sent me through the roof. The last 3 days, I've been able to log 45 minutes a day of low intensity walking--not necessarily f... Read more

Yesterday, I caught a ride to Fort Harrison State Park in Indianapolis to spectate, heckle, and hang out with some of my cx teammates. It was fun. The weather was gorgeous (sunny, 70 degrees) and the course was very spectator friendly. Other tha... Read more

I went bandana shopping with my daughter today. We wanted to get something to cover the surgeon's cap and gauze on my head. I don't mind the surgeon cap and gauze, but you do feel a bit conspicous. So this is what we got: ... Read more

In just a few hours, I'll be seeing first my surgeon and I'll be able to get an idea on when I can get back to running, riding, crashing, and breaking bones...the fun stuff in life. Serious infections...not so much. Then, I go get my head gear f... Read more

Here's the deal. I've got a doc's appointment Friday (surgeon), then Monday (gp), and then I should have some kind of idea of when I get back to normal. Right now, we're looking at being off this week and next. As far as exercise, I don't know. ... Read more

I guess I'll have to use patience. My doc told me I'll be out from work at leat 2 more weeks, but that I should be able to blow this popsicle stand today or tomorrow (probably today). So there's that. It will be a bit longer before I can get on ... Read more

Things keep getting better. Today, I noticed some of the staff coming into my room were wearing plastic gowns and gloves. Then I found out why: My wound culture came back positive for MRSA and I'm officially in isolation. I can still have visito... Read more

It looks like my streak of 90 minutes of exercise per week is coming ot a crashing halt. Earlier today, I had to have surgery on a real nasty boil that had ruptured and the infection was going systemic. Dang it!... Read more

I had a friend contact me on Facebook earlier in the week. He had seen some of the pictures I had put on FB from the mtb trail where I ride and he wanted to get out there with me. We went out today. I have to admit to a great deal of nervou... Read more
Looking for Sanity

Things were looking good for awhile today. Then, before heading out on Stewie, I took a nap. I woke up to my cell phone acting bizarrely. WHile I was trying to get it to work, something else made me realize I've been a moron about certain things... Read more
