Since our last century-ride in September, my father and I are happy to announce that we are back in action. It feels good to be back. While Ralph continues strength training for... Continue reading

Hello everyone, it’s good to be able to write you all after my last century. My dad and I signed up for the Gran Fondo in Morristown NJ which took place yesterday on September 8th, 2013. It was an early morning, I was up at 4:45 and already making oatmeal... Continue reading

Good morning everyone! It's still dark out and the house is quiet save for the gentle chirping of the crickets outside. It's my favorite part of the day, no one else is awake but me and it's times like this when I can really give my creative tendencies full reign... Continue reading

Good morning everyone! It has been wayy too long since my last post, almost two months now. A lot has developed over this summer, and now that I have figured out a semi-coherent game plan for the next couple of months, I am eager to get started in pursuing my... Continue reading

Another day goes by, and the weekend inches ever closer. As a working man I'm really starting to enjoy the concept those precious 48 hours of freedom where a man can use his time as he sees fit. As the summer continues to "heat up," we look beyond June to... Continue reading

So I woke up this morning with a few sleepy birds calling outside my window and an overwhelming urge to bury my head back into my pillows and block out the world for another few hours. I was up last night a little later than normal, and only got about... Continue reading

It's early Monday morning and I just woke up after about a 12-hour stint in my bed. This weekend took a lot out of me, and although it was great to get to spend time with some close friends and meet some new ones, I have to say I threw... Continue reading

My dad always likes to say that everyone has the same 24 hours as the guy next them. It doesn’t matter if you’re the President of the United States, or the 23-year-old college graduate who just landed his first job in the real world. From the time the sun rises... Continue reading

It's early morning; the sun is just peaking over the horizon and filling my room with dull grey light. I’ve been lying awake in my bed for the past 15 minutes, as an unfamiliar feeling of apprehension and uncertainty hangs over me. In my mind I go over the unpleasant... Continue reading

So I'm sitting in my room back at home, watching the temperature climb outside as the summer morning begins to heat things up. Downstairs my mom is brewing coffee while my dad continues to try and fix our dishwasher, calling out to the world, "It's always something!" If You Can't... Continue reading

I apologize for the delay in the posting, but after some much needed celebration and enjoyment among good company and loving family, this little biker needed his rest. Thank you for your patience, I hope that you... Continue reading

The last day is tomorrow! It's the day that I thought would never come, the day that I have thought about over and over through the long hours spent on my stationary bike in my basement. Tomorrow we reach the Atlantic and finish our 3,400 mile journey across the United... Continue reading
