2015 JHOP 100 Century, one second away from crossing the finish line. My fastest century yet, with an official time of 3:58:14 (25 MPH average speed). My cycling month in review: November 2015

A new month is upon us and, as I always do at the beginning of a new month, this morning I’m going to review some of my cycling highlights, personal records and totals from the previous month. In November I continued to build on October, which was one of the strongest months I’ve had on the bike so far this year. Over the past month I set five new lifetime best power records (and at… [Read more]

Whew! Ride report: 2015 JHOP 100 Century (with pictures)

The 4th annual JHOP 100 Century ride and race was held this past Saturday, and it was everything I’d hoped it would be: Fast, fun, fast, safe, fast, scenic and FAST. This was the first time I’ve participated in the JHOP 100, and it was easily the most anticipated century I’ve done during this year’s busy “century season”. Why? How about a full police escort, rolling SAG support and a reputation for an extremely fast… [Read more]

EatSmart Precision Digital Bathroom Scale Late 2015 maintenance progress report: Week #4

Week #4 of my late 2015 maintenance program is complete, and it’s time for my weekly progress report.

All measurements are taken “cold” (no pump), and flexed. A 7-point or 9-point body fat caliper pinch test is the… [Read more]

cold Sick, just in time for today’s JHOP 100

Well, this should be interesting. I’ve been feeling a cold or something coming on the past couple of days, and this morning I’m feeling really crappy. Weak, lungs on fire, achy. Of all the days… Lisa said, “Maybe you shouldn’t go?” Hah! Fat chance. I’ve been looking forward to the JHOP 100 for months. I’m going. I’m not sure if I have a 4-hour century in me today, but I’m damn sure going to try…. [Read more]

These chocolates are incredible! Fun Thanksgiving day; I’m well fueled for JHOP

Thanksgiving was a lot of fun! All the food turned out great, and everyone had a really good time. I didn’t over-eat, but I was definitely full when I went to bed. In fact, even a couple hours after dinner we were all still too full for dessert. I settled for a couple of delicious Ferrero dark chocolates, which are damn amazing:   Here are Lisa’s parents enjoying the dogs:   I’m well-fueled for JHOP… [Read more]

Happy Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving day

Thanksgiving is definitely my favorite holiday. Getting together with family, cooking for everyone and just hanging out enjoying all the great stories–both old and new–is always a blast. Sometimes during the year I find myself grumbling and groaning about some extremely banal, trite stuff. I hate that I do that, I really do. First world problems, to be sure. Thanksgiving is a day when I step back and remind myself that over the next year… [Read more]
