virus I'm feeling a little under the weather…

Not too long after Tuesday’s aggressive ride with a couple of friends I started feeling a little tired and weak. I went to bed extra early that night, but all day yesterday that tired/weak feeling persisted, and I noticed a touch of chest congestion as well. There’s been some stuff going around, and it looks like I may have picked up cold or whatever. I went fairly easy on yesterday’s short 20 mile ride, with… [Read more]

Kudos to Butterfly Landscaping for being safe and responsible members of the community! A positive cyclist/motorist story!

I had a fantastic ride yesterday morning with my friends Sebastian and Christopher. I can always count on a fast, fun and challenging ride when I get to roll with those two crazy dudes. School started back up on Monday, and the traffic, for most of the ride, was extremely heavy. We definitely experienced some close passes, a horn or two and the usual sense that we were not welcome on the roads. One notable… [Read more]

Not resistant enough. This is a first: I’m removing an item from my “Favorite Things” list

Relatively speaking, I don’t add much stuff to my Favorite Things page. I’ve been maintaining that list for almost a decade, and there are only a couple of dozen items on it. The reason it’s a short list is simple: I only add products that A) I think are awesome, and B) I think JSF members and visitors will find useful. Because the products I add to my Favorite Things page are well-vetted before they… [Read more]

I'm so ready for fall. Is it fall yet?

When I stepped outside for my rides early on Saturday and Sunday mornings, my Sunglasses fogged up instantly and I felt as if I’d just walked into a sauna. The heat and humidity this summer have been off the charts here in Central Florida. Those who have lived here for at least a few years are accustomed to steaming hot summers, but this year has been about the worst I can recall since I moved… [Read more]

EatSmart Precision Digital Bathroom Scale 2015 maintenance progress report: Week #20

Week #20 of my 2015 maintenance program is complete, and it’s time for my weekly progress report. METHODS AND MINUTIA: A few words about my body fat test, scale weight and soft tape measurements My body fat, tape measurements and scale weight are all performed while fasted (first thing in the morning before eating or drinking). All measurements are taken “cold” (no pump), and flexed. A 7-point or 9-point body fat caliper pinch test is… [Read more]

smile Hell week wasn’t nearly as bad as usual!

Late last week I wrote about “hell week”, which is the couple of weeks during which college students are moving into their off-campus apartments. My company provides broadband Internet services primarily to students who live in off-campus housing, so the large simultaneous influx of new residents is typically an extraordinarily busy time of the year for me (I’m the senior network administrator). After more than a decade in my current position, I pretty much know… [Read more]

giant-propel-advance-pro-0-curtains Some good guesses, but no one got it; New bike revealed!

In yesterday’s blog I wrote that I would be selling my trusty Trek Madone 5.9 Di2, and would be replacing it with a new aero road bike when it’s released in about 10 weeks time. I didn’t say which bike I was getting, and a bunch of you took some educated guesses here and on Facebook. The new Trek Madone, the Specialized Venge ViAS and the Pinarello Dogma F8 were some of the excellent, but… [Read more]
