Cold day in hell
The inaugural Rocheport Roubaix was billed as a winter cycling adventure on gravel, and winter did not fail to deliver.  Memories of last weekend's glorious warmth weren't enough to stave off the biting chill of a day when the freezing point sounded almost ...

Great gravel route!
Ever since Chuck and I first rode Massas Creek road I've been talking it up, and this Saturday I finally got to show it off to someone else. Bob and I headed west to Jonesburg to check out a loop he'd put together including M...

MLK weekend on bikes
The Berryman ride over the long Martin Luther King, Jr., weekend has become a Team Virtus tradition.  In the past, we've gone the night before and stayed with Luke's family, but with this year's mild forecast the guys were all about camping.  Being more of ...

Pere Marquette Endurance Trail Race
After a noisy November on the blog, it's been quiet here this month. I've stayed active on the weekends, but I've been struggling with motivation and not finding the usual joy in things that I normally love doing (riding my bike, running in the woods, even ...

Thanksgiving
Where is the line that separates a nap from sleeping through the holiday? I may have crossed it today at my mother-in-law's, falling into a tryptophan coma after lunch and waking up after it was dark.  Oops.  It sure felt good, though. I wasn't a slug all d...

Adventure racing in Kentucky!
How do you write a report about a race where nothing went wrong? A day absent of drama and figurative low points? Begin, I suppose, at the beginning, which turns out to be in the aftermath of Thunder Rolls. Aug. 29: Chuck's...

Babler Cold Nose-O
The St. Louis Orienteering Club's Cold Nose-O at Babler State Park was held on the last Sunday in January. This particular meet is a memorable one for me since, several years ago, it was my first solo attempt ...one which did not go well at all. Tears were ...

Here we go again...
Last year at Dirty Kanza, when it was virtually certain that I was
actually going to finish the race that had eluded me the previous two

Thanksgiving buffet
I was lucky enough to have three Thanksgiving dinners this year. The first, last Monday, was the one that I prepared together with my students and shared with their third grade book buddies. It's a classroom tradition that I love. Thanksgiving day was spent...
