So it has been 275 days (9 months and 1 day) since my last bike race and 255 days (8 month, 11 days) since total knee replacement surgery. I’ve only really been on the bike outside since late December and... Continue reading

On the plus side Surgeon is very pleased with where I am. My scar looks good. I can walk up steps almost like a normal person. I'm up to about 40 minutes of walking with no problem (1.5 miles yesterday... Continue reading

A big day! I got into the competition pool via the ladder and got out at the end of my swim!!! No more old people's pool. I ended up doing 1100 m, mostly swimming but some kicking and some slow... Continue reading

Things are coming along slowly. This recovery is not a straight linear thing. I may go if you days feeling better and better and doing more and then they'll be a day or two where I fall back and can't... Continue reading

The pain killers have seemed to have knocked out all my taste buds. The coffee and beer that I love - I can barely drink either. And most food still doesn't sound that appetizing. My favorite thing to eat right... Continue reading

WARNING - FRUSTRATION RANT FORTHCOMING Well first of all, if I'd known how it would really be, I would have never have done this. I feel like I've wasted 6 weeks of my life and I'd rather have the pain... Continue reading

It's been just over two weeks since surgery and I feel like I've lost about 8 days somewhere. I ended up spending 3 nights in the hospital, starting physical therapy on the second day. They get you up and going... Continue reading

It's 3 AM and I'm wide-awake since they seem to come into my room about every hour to do something. Yesterday Kristi picked me up and drove me to the hospital. I was there early so I sat in the... Continue reading

It's hard to believe I haven't updated this in over a year. Very little training and even less racing to report. The past year has been work, physical therapy, work, travel for work, sit too much, exercise not enough, and... Continue reading

July 27, 2014 The last triathlon I completed was the full Vinemen in 2007 (I did swim/bike Kansas 70.3 in 2008 but a tornado cancelled the run). After that I'd turned to bike racing only, then a crash, knee surgery,... Continue reading

June 14, 2014 The TN State time trial was the first race I did when I moved here two years ago. I flew here on a Thursday, checked into a hotel in Brentwood and on Friday, went to MOAB Franklin... Continue reading

Rockabilly Ominum May 31 – June 1, 2014 Jackson, TN I hadn't really planned on doing these races since I'm vastly undertrained, but I did get 6 days in a row riding in California in mid-May and a few days... Continue reading

Only six days left in this challenge and I've been liking it quite a bit. It's given me some ideas to later write about and got me to take a writing course, so a win all around. Yesterday I found... Continue reading

Endings. What is that saying? “All good things must come to an end.” I think that's it. When I moved here I knew no one. The one person I did know that lived here (who knows me pretty well), high-tailed... Continue reading

This would be the 24th straight day that I've written a minimum of 500 words. I'm kind of getting into the flow of it, so I've decided to take a 6-week writing course – Intro to Non-Fiction through Gotham Writers... Continue reading

I've been writing every day but longhand instead of here. Not much to say, just a recap of the prior day and other things going on (which I can't really say quite yet, but will do so later). So, I'm... Continue reading

Back on the bike. Two days in a row of riding the bike. That's about 34 miles and probably more than in the past 4 months. October through December was pretty brutal. A lot of work travel, a lot of... Continue reading

Review: Saint Añejo http://mstreetnashville.com/restaurants/saint-anejo/details Last night I met Kathy and Neil and a few others at Saint Añejo, the new Mexican restaurant in the Gulch by the M Street group. They have six restaurants, all on the hip, happening, high... Continue reading
