We are finishing up a trip to Dahlonega, GA and it has definitely been about making family memories. My primary purpose in coming up here was a cycling challenge which you can read about here, but since my family was along, we had some great memories. First of all, we drove up together, with 4 days worth of stuff. For
I was done. Had failed to get 10,000 feet of climbing on my bicycle. Missed by about half. I’m not sure why I clicked on the Strava Correct Elevation link. I normally don’t. Laid down for a nap.

This is personal. It’s a note to me for next year at this time. Still here? OK you asked for it … You’ve been warned. This is about me and my family.

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.
“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
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
