Decided to bring the family to Dade City this weekend to experience Wicked Awesome Racing (WAR) Cyclocross.

Reactive Arthritis
Reactive Arthritis

This story was painful to write, as the memory of the pain I experienced fighting this condition was unpleasant. It’s only because several others currently fighting RA have asked me to write my story that it is here. I hope it helps and inspires those of you. “You will probably never run again, at least not any distance.” Harsh words

This post is for me, myself and I. No one else. It’s a note to me for next year at this time. If you don’t want to be bored about my running and riding exploits for 2017 then you should close the window now. Maybe my kids will read it some day. Maybe. I’ve been frantically searching my disk drives

I got interviewed by the Sentinel two years ago and had asked for the video. They never sent it to me but I just found it on Youtube! Here is the original Orlando Sentinel Story.

One Hour Record

“Hey you want to set a state record?” That kind of question will always get my attention, of course. Nathan Rogut and Carl Sundquist had an idea. They felt the cycling velodrome at Brian Piccolo Park was underutilized. They wanted a promotion, or a publicity stunt, to get people’s attention on the track. “Let’s get someone to set a state

BizFest 2017

I was honored and flattered to speak at BizFest 2017, put on by the Orlando SCORE chapter at the National Entrepreneur Center, on May 9. I was selected to be on a panel discussing “Tips From Business Survivors”. We introduced ourselves with a little story and then took on some questions.

Misconceptions of Success
Misconceptions of Success

I‘ve listed seven and a half of what I see are the most common misconceptions of “success” 1: Success means having a lot of money. While it is certainly better to have money than have not, there are more important things than money. The most important thing to any person is health. Ask any person who is unhealthy how much

Why Is Being A Christian So Hard?
Why Is Being A Christian So Hard?

I‘ve never understood why people make being a Christian so difficult. It must be the devil’s way of keeping his flock, by scaring people away from faith. When I first started a personal relationship with Christ in 1994, I was immediately bombarded with lots of “good advice”, on the order of “you need to do this” or “you need to
