I'm rapidly approaching my year anniversary of my weight loss. Since last year the weight has floated as high as 10 lbs over and only once below my weight loss goal. Would prefer it stay within +/- 2.5 lbs but suspect my goal weight is rock bo... Read more
Quotes at the Bottoms of Co-workers Emails

Got another hot ride in yesterday (30 miles). Nothing like having to use a "back up" bike to truly make you appreciate your primary bike! Rode Thursday night on my son's old bike, only got in 10 miles in by the time the bike was prepped since... Read more
So much for my plans
Monday, June 14, 2010      1 comments

I planned to get up this morning and get 10 miles in on my bike before work. Oops set the alarm for PM rather than AM. Probably for the best it stormed early this morning so it would have been wet dark and generally yucky. Got around late... Read more
