It's Called a Race....
Triathlon season is in full swing. Each weekend there is a race whether it is a sprint or a 70.3 (soon the 140.6s will start). The usual Facebook posts go up on Wednesday: Who is racing (fill in the blank)? The responses follow. People check in as to who is...

Dear Motorist revisited....
Dear Motorist, I'm sorry I delayed you a few moments while you had to wait to safely pass me. However, I also want to thank you. Thank you for losing those few moments to make sure I stayed safe while riding my bike. Thank you for sharing the road with me, ...

Time to Lighten the Load...
I'm tired of being tired. Why am I tired? It isn't like I have kids. (Snarky reference to that stupid meme that says people who don't have children don't know exhaustion.) I'm tired because I over commit myself. I'm busy . I'm busy all the time. Therefore I...

I Am a New Year Resolutioner....
The memes on Facebook started a week or two ago. The specific complaints were quite obvious today. Someone is in my parking space. Why are all these people here?    Well, I'm here to publicly admit...I am a New Year Resolutioner . Seriously....I know. I kn...
