Adventure: Inland OC

This was a good ride for me. Not too long and not too tall. I did ride several short hill sections back to back to make things more interesting. But, the key for me was lack of preparation. Normally, I … Read More

Adventure: Disconnect

WARNING: THIS IS KIND OF A RANT, BUT IT’S COMING FROM A PLACE OF CONCERN AND BEWILDERMENT NOT FROM AN “I’M BETTER THAN YOU” DIRECTION. I HAVE NO ANWERS. So I was at the mall attempting to buy a Speedo. … Read More

Adventure: Hand to Garden to Table

In theory this will work. Yes, I’m planting at the wrong time, but my travel schedule doesn’t play well with the flow of nature, so I have to get creative. It’s pretty damn amazing to stick something in the ground … Read More

Adventure: New Mexico

Give me a few days in New Mexico and I’ll make the most of it. Run(tiny), hike, fish and ride. Not to mention consume as much local stuff as humanly possible. A strange food trip for me. Eating once a … Read More

Yoga: Morning Tools

This was my NoCal yoga spot for the past few days. Pink isn’t the new anything. It’s just pink. And that’s all that is needed. Travel mat, sweat cloth, two therapy balls I use on my feet-I stand on them … Read More

Adventure: Texas River Fishing

It started the day before. The trash talk. My mom and I. “You are probably too old to find the river, and even if you did you would probably fall in and I would have to save you,” I said … Read More

Yoga: Sweat

Sweat. There are those who love it and those who don’t. I love it. Potentially this comes from fifteen years in Texas where sweating is a sport. A hundred degrees with ninety plus percent humidity. Love it. Unless I have … Read More

Yoga: Location, Location, Location

Anywhere you do yoga is great. Fine. Just fine. But location can add to the experience. Now, where I live the yoga schools are packed with uber Newport women who eat little and yoga lots. They are impressive, and on … Read More

Adventure: Bianchi Coastal

Back from the New Mexico mountains. Sea level. Everything is easy. Up early, just spinning. Ticking of the k’s. Or miles or whatever unit of measurement you prefer. Alone on the road. Back Bay to Shady to Laguna Canyon. Stop … Read More

Adventure: New Mexico Earth

I stayed with a friend on this last trip. Up at 5AM everyday to get on the bike. Back by 8:30 which is 7:30 CA time, so an hour to eat, shower and get ready for the Blurb battle. Late … Read More

Adventure: Santa Fe Baldy

Sunrise. The parking lot. Four of us. Friends, some old, some new. Woodsmoke, pack and unpack. Balancing water supply with the unknown. A blister already there, but lace up tight and hope for the best. From 10,000 feet to 12,600. … Read More

Adventure: Santa Fe Life

Just a taste of what my life in Santa Fe is like. Early morning rides everyday. Hikes. Nothing too huge but all at elevation. Gearing up for a few more epic rides/hikes this coming weekend. Will share those once they … Read More

Yoga: On the Road,England and Australia

Yoga keeps me sane while I’m on the road. Even on the days I don’t want to do it. I force myself by remembering it’s only 25 minutes. Getting the blood going, a sweat going, is so key to things … Read More

Adventure: Brommer Canyon

Wanting to puke is a natural part of the hiking experience, so go ahead. Nobody cares. I scored a parking spot, which was the real coup of this little excursion. Hidden in the middle of Irvine, this little hike is … Read More

Yoga: Handstand to Up Dog

The one and only Jamie Hamilton performing a handstand to up dog on my patio. Yes, this really happened. Jamie is not only a wonderful artist, but is also a tightrope walker. Don’t believe me, here’s proof. He’s a strong … Read More

Adventure: Texas River Fishing

I think you might have seen these images prior to this post, but they were posted BEFORE I made all these recent changes to the site. I didn’t have an “Adventure” tab before, so these images were only posted on … Read More
