Out of office Signing off for a couple weeks…

This will be my final blog for a couple weeks. As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, I’m being pulled in about a dozen directions right now, and I need to do everything I can to prioritize my limited resources and focus on the critical stuff. My usual daily blog will resume on Monday, September 29, 2014. Over the next couple weeks I’ll still be around on the JSF Forums and Facebook, and of course I’ll… [Read more]

Time out break Time off announcement.

I’m feeling stretched extremely thin, and over the next three weeks things are going to get even worse. I need to minimize my commitments and simplify my schedule as much as possible right now, and so I’ve decided to take a couple weeks off from blogging. Tomorrow’s blog will be my last for the next couple of weeks. Unfortunately this will not be a vacation. I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to take some time… [Read more]

One of my favorite stretches of road: Highway 19 north of Altoona. Excellent ride yesterday, couple new PRs.

For yesterday’s ride I decided to go solo, and I rode north on Highway 19 into the Ocala National Forest. Highway 19 is one of my favorite stretches of road: the road surface is generally very good, the traffic is fairly light, there is a nice wide shoulder and it’s quite scenic–especially as you get into the forest. Also, once you get past Altoona/Highway 42, there are no traffic lights or stop signs for many,… [Read more]

Here are some of the things you can expect to see in the coming weeks: Software updates to the main JSF site (this site). None of these changes will be revolutionary, but there will… [Read more]

This is while we were waiting for the rider who had the mechanical. I'm second from the left, pecking away at my phone. Image Credit: Marion Kusters Fun weekend of riding!

What a great weekend of riding! All told I rode 244 kilometers (151.8 miles): 163.3 kilometers (101.5 miles) on Saturday, and 81 kilometers (50.3 miles) on Sunday. Even though I wasn’t feeling well on Saturday morning, I decided to do the planned 162 kilometer (100 mile) group ride. Making the choice between doing the ride or staying home and going short was a tough call. I decided that I was feeling well enough to ride… [Read more]

gonna be dumb gotta be tough I’m sick, but doing today’s century anyway.

When Lisa was sick a couple weeks ago, I was able to fight it off before it really took hold. Well, yesterday morning my luck ran out: I woke up feeling terrible. I had a sore throat, my whole body was achy and sore, and the lymph node under my left arm was swollen and quite painful! The last time I experienced a swollen lymph node was, I believe, when I was a teenager and… [Read more]
