Adventure: California Training

As you will see, I’m establishing a pattern, but before I comment further I’d just like to say that none of this really matters. At all. Exercise, for those who love it, is an integral part of…..something, but what that … Read More

Adventure: California Training

My feet hurt. For some unknown reason I felt like running yesterday, so I did. And now I realize how old and brittle I really am. I didn’t just run any little old trail. No, I decided to run a … Read More

Apparently you are not supposed to mix creatine and beet powder. But I did. And then I promptly rode the thirty miles you see here. So far I’m still alive but the day is young. This may or may not … Read More

Adventure: Night Patrol

I love hiking at night. This is less than a mile from my house, but once you leave the pavement you get to know the night. Even though I’m in the middle of the OC I’m surrounded by creatures. Did … Read More

Adventure: California Training

So two days ago I did a ride at 6AM and the temperature was 44 degrees. Not that bad. But on the back side of the Back Bay it was 34 degrees. And I don’t have gloves. So by mile … Read More

Physically I’m back from West Texas but mentally I’m still dusty. I’m actually IN Texas again, but this time on the opposite side. Houston to be precise, a city that has REALLY shocked me in a good way. I’ve had … Read More

Adventure: Texas Training

Yesterday I drove 1200 miles straight. Twenty-one-hours. Not recommended. But traffic returning to SoCal on a holiday weekend is biblical in proportion, and I have work to do, so it was required. Got out last week. Seems like a year … Read More

I’ve got a date with a few Texas/Mexico peaks, so putting in some time here locally to get myself a bit more prepared. Exercise is an important part of my life. It wasn’t always. I look back at the twenty … Read More

Adventure: No Name Ridge x 2

This is a 7.4 mile out and back, or down and back, or up and down and back. We only did a portion but what we were greeted with was MAYBE the best SoCal sky I’ve seen. We’ve had four … Read More

Adventure: California Training

I’m in big trouble. Real trouble. My brain is again feeling free. For the first time in four years. Not perfect, just free. I tend to change my life dramatically every five years or so, and I can feel another … Read More

Adventure: New Mexico Training

I’m a cycling God. You should know this by now. I’m lying. Average at best. Today was fun because I was unprepared. Now, a temperature of 39 might be balmy to you but not to me. I had no gloves … Read More
