Last week, I went bike riding on the Big Creek Greenway. I rode about 20 easy, flat miles. I tried out my new Garmin Oregon 450 which I mounted on my bicycle using the Garmin bike mount. Here is the Big Creek Greenway Bike Ride Garmin Adventure. Unfortunately, I don’t know if it’s possible to… Continue reading Big Creek Greenway Bike Ride
Last weekend, I ran the Jingle Jog 5K. This was an exciting event because Amber, Michelle and I were all participating. I ran this 5km race at Michelle’s pace, who did very well. Here’s a map of the route, along with elevation, my heart rate and speed graphs. According to the official results, my chip… Continue reading Jingle Jog
After years of running for a while and then quitting because running is hard, this summer I decided to try again. In June, I started using the 9-week couch-to-5K program with the Get Running iPhone app. Since it was summer in HOTlanta, I did all my running/walking on a treadmill at the gym. But I… Continue reading Gobble Jog 5K

This month we celebrated 17 years of our marriage. It’s been a long, great time. Also last week I turned 41. For my birthday, Amber and Michelle got me a bicycle, a Cannondale Quick 5 hybrid. And here I am, a long long time ago.

When the doctor told me I had Ureterolithiasis, I logged into 23andme to check my genetic risk. There was only one SNP (rs4293393) listed there. The G allele increased the risk 14% but I have AA, so typical odds. Next step was checking SNPedia where I found 8 SNPs, of which some are given below.… Continue reading Genetics and Health
I have been neglecting the blog again. On Sunday night and Monday, we got about 5 inches of snow here in Atlanta. That’s more than I have seen here in my 13 years. Then the temperature stayed below freezing until today. So it turned to ice. The roads here have been treacherous all week and… Continue reading Snowpocalypse
