Acceptance

Be Scared and Do It Anyway….

“Why am I doing this??”  That is a literal question I ask myself at least once, if not several times, during each ride I set out on. Mountain biking for me is challenging, like really challenging.

Getting To Know Thyself…

I have always been interested in human nature. Why people do the things they do. How much our upbringing plays a role in the person we become versus how genetics affect who we end up being.

My Relationship With Food

Like most relationships, it is a ridiculously complicated one. Well, it used to be.

Going the Distance….

What’s the longest run you have been able to complete? For me, it was about 14 miles. It was 14 miles oh about 20 years ago when I was much younger and had been running much more consistently. Did I mention I was also a lot younger? Nowadays my average mileage is usually between 4-6… Continue reading Going the Distance….

3 Things I Should Have Stopped Doing a Long Time Ago…

I was recently walking my dogs past a group of young kids playing basketball and my friend who was with me looked over at them and said, "Man, to be that young again!". My reply was, "I wish I could be that young again but know what I know now!" With age comes wisdom, at… Continue reading 3 Things I Should Have Stopped Doing a Long Time Ago…

A Little More About Virtual Racing…

I had quite a few races planned for this year.  From Tough Mudders, to a bunch of local 5k’s to my very first 10k, I was excited and had spent months training and preparing for each and every one of them.    Well needless to say, 2020 did not go at all as we planned!  One… Continue reading A Little More About Virtual Racing…
