On June 30, there was the GA-400 bike ride. Last year, I had done the 9-mile ride, but decided to go 45 miles this time. Here’s the route along with my info: Some observations about the ride: Some cyclists use earphones in both ears during the ride which I believe is not allowed in Georgia.… Continue reading GA-400 Bike Ride
My body fat percentage is now down to 14%. It’s the lowest I have ever measured. About 9 years ago, almost 25% of my weight was fat. That got me worried and I had exercised my way to 20.5% fat by New Year 2005, losing 11 lbs (5 kg) in the process. In another year… Continue reading Body Fat 14%

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.

But she liked one thing, then another and they accumulated until now I spend most evenings driving my seven year old around town for: Horse Riding Gymnastics Ice skating Swimming I am also helping her learn… Continue reading Soccer Dad
