Old Cheese Doesn’t Make an Omelet BadJanuary 31st, 2018  5:49 am

It is with grace, tranquility, and ease that I awake this morning with renewed, unfettered enthusiasm for the day ahead. Recently I’ve gotten a little off track with my diet, being afflicted by a minor stomach bug. Let’s just say during the prior two snow days (1 and 2) I had eaten far too many […]

The Lance Armstrong Lie, Chris Froome’s Asthma, and Another Snow Day!January 30th, 2018  7:20 pm

So today was another snow day and as such I took care of things that needed to get done but also was able to watch, “The Lance Armstrong Lie,” along with a podcast about Chris Froome which was good as I was under the weather again today. I have a stomach bug or something, but […]

Riding to Third on a Broken Ankle #DeterminationJanuary 22nd, 2018  7:55 pm

2007 was a defining year for me as a cyclist. I had started the year ranked #1 in the United States in the Master’s 30-34 Road Race Category. I felt embarrassed at the time telling friends, “yeah, I’m ranked #1 in the U.S. in my age group, (in that particular category – old man category)” […]

Chess: Sacrificing a Pawn in “Chess” to Win the Race!January 21st, 2018  10:23 am

Today, instead of blogging about my omelet that I had this morning I’d like to do another post on bike racing. Then I thought about chess, a tactical game where pawns and other pieces can be sacrificed to win the game. Sacrificing a Pawn to Win the Race Bicycle racing is a team sport, where […]

Michael Weston and Life LessonsJanuary 18th, 2018  5:46 am

Yesterday, I had a day off from school due to inclement weather, or in technical terms a “snow day.” I’ve been very busy as of late but I took a little bit of the morning to have some “me time.” To do that I turned on “On Demand,” and watched a wonderful little show kindly […]

Just Ignoring It and Little Debbie SnacksJanuary 16th, 2018  6:02 am

As I may have mentioned in previous posts, I am trying to lose weight as one of my New Year’s Resolutions. Unfortunately this week has been tough. I’ve coughed so hard from this cold that I’ve nearly passed out. My diet also took a slip … That being noted I took inspiration in watching an […]

Be Honest, Don’t Be a Bully, and Don’t Count Your Cards Until The Game is OverJanuary 15th, 2018  9:31 am

Recently, I found an interesting series on YouTube featuring Floyd Landis interviewed by Graham Bensinger. It starts with, “Lance Armstrong was a jerk and a bully.” I have to say, while I am no fan of Floyd Landis, I found it entertaining. I’m glad I did cycling the right way, never using performance enhancing substances, […]

My Cold, A Relentless AdversaryJanuary 14th, 2018  8:33 am

So, I’ve been suffering with a cold this week and while it didn’t knock me out for school it’s been a tough beast to tame. Yesterday the cold really tested my limits and it was tough to be graceful, tranquil, and to breath with ease. This has helped me to develop an unfettered enthusiasm for […]

I’ve even blogged about how Rocky movies are motivational. So the question you may be asking yourself is, “Tim, why do you blog?” Why I Blog I blog […]
