I'm a pretty healthy guy. I hardly ever get a cold or get sick. On Wednesday, I felt my neck getting a bit stiff. On Wednesday night, it took me forever to get into the bed. My nerves were pinging me and making it difficult for me to get comfort... Read more

Well, here I sit at the computer while the rain is falling outside. In 15 minutes I head out for a 58-mile organized ride. It'll be a bit wet, but that's what I truly enjoy. Doing something that others think not doable. The bike will be filthy, ... Read more
