Wednesday, October 27, 2010      1 comments

Yesterday the wind in the Twin Cities was unbelievable and it didn't let up all night. It's still blowing like mad, which is kind of fun to watch, but makes it impossible for me to bike. So I'll thank God for another day of rest and try to get l... Read more

It's been a good but very busy week for me (my week goes from Tuesday to Sunday, with Monday off). I'm so tired but I get to do a bunch of nothing today and for that I'm very grateful to the Lord! So I look forward to laying around, watching a f... Read more

I rarely get this tired. I'm literally having to strain to keep my eyes open as I write this! I've been at a men's retreat this weekend with our church which was great, but all the activity has made me very, very tired. So off I go to la l... Read more

My new goal for the year is to put in 2708 miles for this year because that would mean I've done an even 5000 miles in the last two years. I was able to get 35 miles in today and it looks like I'll be able to get about 65 in tomorrow which will ... Read more

Monday, October 18, 2010      0 comments

So I've been commuting on my bike lately and all I have to carry my stuff is a backpack. Perhaps someday I'll buy a little trailer but for now it's just the backpack. The one issue I've been having with this is bringing food for lunch because it... Read more

It's been very warm in the Twin Cities these days and so I've been wearing shorts because I can. Well, this morning I put on my shorts, got on the bike, headed out the garage and soon realized it was a bit colder than usual this morning! I just ... Read more
