Wow. I cannot believe it's been almost two years since my last entry here. My weight is still to high, my stress level is even higher, and my spare time has practically vanished. I tried Weight Watchers for a while a couple months ago, but with ... Read more

Over the past four months, my fitness has slid backwards steadily. I have a ton of excuses, but two stand out: bad weather has kept me off my bike and my start-up business has me working from early morning into the evening. I've been eating badl... Read more

Looked like we weren't going to get the rain that was forecast, Cindy is over in the Valley, so I hopped on my bike. At first I was going to just do the Two Bridges Loop, a great route up and down both sides of the last eleven miles of the Rogue... Read more
