1/8/11--Pure Beauty and a Cool Idea
Saturday, January 08, 2011      3 comments

I went for a run tonight. I spent most of the day shopping for clothes with my 14 year old daughter. I don't know how, but she always weasels me into taking her shopping (Punkin: Dad, take me shopping. I'll treat you to Starbucks. Me: Okay). Aft... Read more

I had to take a day of vacation today to deal with some family issues. Some stressful family issues. Without going into details, just let me say that if cortisol was half as expensive as printer ink and I could find a way to harvest that which I... Read more
1/5/11a I REMEMBERED!!!!!
Wednesday, January 05, 2011      5 comments

WOOOOO!!! I remembered...sort of. Here's what got me so excited: I GOT IN SOMEBODY'S PANTS!! Wait. That doesn't sound quite right. Let me explain. When I got divorced, I went from 210lbs to 250 plus in matter of weeks. It can be done. I wa... Read more
1/5/11 Uh, What?

I think I'm losing my mind. I had an incredibly witty, smart, and deep blog written while I was in my office. Then I turned off the exhaust fan, stepped into the hall, and forgot what I was going to write. I remember 1 sentence fragment ("Bear i... Read more
1/4/11--Of Burning Matches, Patience, and Burning Down the House
Tuesday, January 04, 2011      2 comments

I went for a run Monday. The sunny skies and moderate temps lured me outside. The length of time since my last run (sometime in September, I believe) had me stalling. I spent 30 minutes commenting on blogs, 20 minutes trying to get my micoach ap... Read more
1/1/11-- A Good Race Indeed
Saturday, January 01, 2011      2 comments

Yesterday, New Year's Eve, was the Pie and Recycled Caution Tape CX race. This was a hastily thrown together (less than 2 weeks from inception to race), fundraiser for the local developmental cycling team, the QCW Lionhearts. It was also EPIC!! ... Read more

Saturday, December 25, 2010      3 comments

Two years ago, on Christmas Eve 2008, I had my last seizure. After a nearly 17 year stretch of calm, my simple, well controlled, case of epilepsy reared it's ugly head. I was Christmas shopping with my girlfriend when I started having visions. W... Read more
12/14/10 The Snow Crop Was Bountiful
Tuesday, December 14, 2010      3 comments

I finished up the CX season on Sunday. Cap City CX season finale was at a place called Lobdell Preserve out in the middle of nowhere northeast of Columbus. It was, if I may, EPIC!! My daughter would say it was uber-uberstitze, which she says is... Read more
12/6/10 Snow Play, Redux
Monday, December 06, 2010      1 comments

Sunday was the OVCX season finale at Brookside Park in Indianapolis. I love this course. The first time I raced there (2007) we had a huge thunderstorm. When we were staging, someone asked if anything would postpone the race. The official said o... Read more

Saturday, December 04, 2010      1 comments

I raced up in Indy today and will again tomorrow. There was about 2 inches of snow on the ground with more falling at reace time. Seemed like a good time to race in my summer jersey and shorts and pink fuzzy gloves. The only time I was cold w... Read more
11/29/10--It's a Great Day for a Race. Let's Race Two.
Monday, November 29, 2010      0 comments

Yesterday was the Ohio State CX Championship at John Bryan State Park outside of Yellow Springs. Except for the clear skies and bright sun, the weather was perfect cyclocross weather: cold and muddy. Newman, a teammate, met me at 6am to rid... Read more

Saturday, November 27, 2010      1 comments

I'm doing 3 races this week. Thursday was my first race--the Turkey CX race at Kingswood. This was a wonderfully sloppy exercise in intentional anarchy. Completely unsanctioned, just 20 or so people showing up for a race that was an imprompt... Read more
11/21/10 Promotion Cross: Karma
Monday, November 22, 2010      2 comments

Today was Promotion Cross in Lexington. This was a brutal little race that had just about everybody I talked to wanting to hurl. I managed to keep from sliding to last until about a third of the way into the first lap when we went through t... Read more

Sunday, November 14, 2010      1 comments

What a day.... After last night's end of season team party, I ended up not getting to sleep until 2:30am. I had to get up at 5;45 to drive 2 + hours to get to a race. And I'm in my 50's. Theme for today: This is gonna hurt.... My teammate N... Read more
11/12/10 It Gets Worse
Friday, November 12, 2010      0 comments

Oh, my, it gets worse. Thursday, low 70's, and no saddle time. I did get a flat tire on the mtb fixed, though. (Guess what I'm doing Saturday, hehehehe). I did get a half hour on the elliptical machine while watching "Alex and Emma" (my punishme... Read more
