Run, Row, Rock and Roll part 2

Run, Row, Rock and Roll part 2
Race day! The alarm went off at 4:30.  Yuck.  I forget how noisy tent camping can be.  We listened to some coyotes during the night and one of us snored.  I’m not saying which one. We pulled on our clothes which consisted of new socks for both of us, and new pants for me.  Which ...

Beer Run recap

Beer Run recap

Adventure Gear 101

Team Knotheads is preparing for our upcoming race on June 14th. We had our first trail ride last week on single track.  I’m not entirely sure we were where we were supposed to be but we didn’t get kicked out.  We really didn’t see anyone for that matter.  We rode for about an hour and ...

I just want a new bike.
Sigh.  I want to upgrade my bike. I have a 16 + year old mountain bike.  It’s been good to me.  I rode a lot more before I got married and had kids.  Highlight was a hiking/biking trip to Moab, Utah.  Beautiful place, great memories.  I really want to go back again.  But my bike. ...

Lincoln Half Marathon recap
Sunday was the Lincoln Marathon and Half Marathon.  I ran the half. The only pictures I ended up having are the ones my mom took where they came and watched.  Oops. This was the first time I ran the Lincoln Half and it was pretty cool to see the town come out and support the ...
