Chill
Tuesday, September 28, 2010      1 comments

There's a chill in the air and I don't like it. Yesterday I rode my bike and it was 59 degrees outside. Not a fun ride for this Texan. Guess we're spoiled. HOOAAA!!... Read more

Our German Foreign Exchange Student arrived in mid August. To date, it has been an amazing experience for him and for us. He's a bright individual with much curiosity. He's currently on the tennis team, on the cross-country team, and is the pian... Read more

Sunday, September 26, 2010      2 comments

Last 3 weeks I've made it a point to try real hard to eliminate foods that are not very good for me. I love the little Hershey's chocolate and almonds candies. This coming week, they're off my plate. HOOAAA!!... Read more

Overall, it was a good week. Did my biking, played some ping-pong with my son and exchange student, played with the dogs, and loved my Cuchi-Cuchi by the bunches. Does it get any better?? HOOAAA!!... Read more
Hammerfest Bike Ride
Saturday, September 18, 2010      1 comments

It started not so good. Left my bike computer home. No problem cause I live 5 miles from the starting point and I have 20 minutes before the start. I call Cuchi-Cuchi and ask her to bring me the computer (with a nice please, of course). Fifteen ... Read more
Doing Great

I think that I finally "got it". I'm doing all that I'm supposed to be doing and feeling good about it. Have done away with some of the foods that I love (Peanut butter, cookies, bread) with foods that are good for me (meats, poultry, fish, frui... Read more
Hotter than Hell 100
Saturday, August 28, 2010      3 comments

I trained very hard for this event. I did what I should have done and then some. My goal was to do the ride in under 5 hours. Unfortunately, I rode with a group that was much too fast and I paid the price. The first 2 hours I averaged 22+ miles ... Read more

So, I enter one of Randolph AFB's rest rooms, just prior to the start of my tempo rides. The big dummy that last cleaned and mopped failed to leave a sign indicating that the floor was wet. Man did I go flying in the air. I was so mad. Anyway, I... Read more
A Challenging Ride

Today I had scheduled a 5-hour ride as a last ride prior to August 28th's Hotter Than Hell 100 bike ride. The start was great, but the heart rate monitor was not functioning. That was bothersome, but not a ride killer. As I progressed on the rid... Read more

It's Amazing
Saturday, July 31, 2010      6 comments

Had you told me 10 years ago that I would be biking in 90 degree weather for 4.5 hours, I would have told you to see a shrink. It's truly amazing how the body adapts to tough physical requirements. When I began cycling I could barely do 10 miles... Read more
