Week 8 – Nothing Fits!

May 11th, 2009

I’m under 150 pounds now and out of the Athena division!  My clothes have steadily become looser and looser and I have to belt my pants to keep them where they are suppose to be. (more…)


Mental Management or Triple Delight

Point Reyes by bike.

I now work for Lonely Planet, a publisher of travel guides.

We didn’t have any big plans during the alloted window to complete the assignment, so we took a day trip to ride bicycles at Point Reyes National Seashore. It was a nice hilly 50 mile ride, with generally good weather.

Mt. Tam, mountain bikes and a broken arm.

June 10th, 2005

Mt. Tam in Marin county is the home of mountain biking. We finally made it over there and spent the day riding with friends. The ride was great, if a little warm. Just 800 feet from the bottom of the last big descent, Thom dumped his bike – banging his arm pretty badly. The ranger shuttled Thom back to the car. The X-ray says “broken”.

  • That's what we call a "broken arm". Not too serious, just a real pain in the - arm.
