The past two days have been crazy at work. I'm a professional fundraiser, and yesterday was supposed to be a day of giving, where people were encouraged to give to local nonprofits in their area, all on the same day. All using the same website. ... Read more

I actually did 105 miles over 2 rides during my long weekend (I had Monday and Tuesday off). I'm learning how to manage my nutrition better on those long ride days, and I'm much fresher than I have been. All that said, what will be the true test... Read more

For those of you who might be concerned, I'm still here. I'm not on the message boards as much, and I'm not spending as much time on Spark as I have in the past. I am trying to lose the last 19 (now 18) pounds to get to that final goal weight. W... Read more
