March 2018 Plans

In June 2017 I retired from Seagate and I began a conditioning program where I rode my bikes, ran, and worked out in our basement. I started at 205lbs and by Thanksgiving I was down to 190. Unfortunately, I slid back into old habits over the holidays and now on March 1st I’m up to…

Legion of Honor 70 miler

On June 6th at 7AM I’ll meet up with Karin Weller, Barry Schwartz, Robert Sexton, and Ken Emerson at the Starbucks in Fremont near the BART station to ride the San Francisco Randonneurs’ Dart.

May 2014 Update

May was a milestone month for my cycling.  I started the month in Northern Ireland, my 10th week of travel for the year. While there I came down with chest and ear infections which took several days to overcome with help from antibiotics. BTW, the UK has it right when it comes to medical coverage.…

Running in 2013

So far, the only organized running event I plan to run this year is Wharf to Wharf in July which I hope to run in under 50 minutes.  To do that I need to be in better running shape so I’m starting a series of running challenges. The first challenge is 30x30x60 – 30 runs…
