Wow, yesterday went down in my record book as the hottest at 106 degrees. Man o man, it was hot. But, we overcame and survived. Kept myself well liquified. The "chow" was very healthy. Perhaps there is hope for me, after all. HOOAAA!!... Read more

It was a great day to go a bit longer on the bike and I did. 40+ miles in the heat, but everything was a OK. The body is amazing. Its ability to adapt to prolonged stressful situations is amazing. As long as we give it time to adapt, it does jus... Read more

Some times life throws you lemons and you need to turn it into lemonade (not very original). Yesterday life threw me some lemons. First off, I woke up and it was thundering and pouring rain. Just wasn't going to let a bit of rain "wet my parade"... Read more

Rode my new bike for the second time and had to cut it short. The saddle is hurting my butt. Don't know if it's the wrong saddle for me or if I just need to break it in. We shall see. Meanwhile we're making progress on the nutritional front. HOO... Read more
