Catching up... and Happy Birthday to me!

Sorry for the lack of posts- it's been a way bit busy with the travel and then the getting over the travel. I get to get back on a plane on Wednesday and return to Taiwan for the Taipei tradeshow.

So, first things first; today is my birthday. Yep, 37 now. I know I look more like 57 with all the grey hair, but I'm still under 40 for now. So, it's nice to get older today. For my birthday, I went for a nice long ride. I rarely ride on weekends because of family commitments, so getting out for a 6 hour ride is very rare. I bit off more than I should have tried to chew... and bonked harder than I ever have! It was actually kind of comical- the swerving, the incoherent babbling to myself, seeing spots and all that cool stuff. I thought I was going to have to walk up a few hills- it was that bad. But... I got to ride my new rig... which made it all better.



Go ahead, slobber all you want.

The DC National Bike Summit was amazing. I will put up a longer post soon, with lots of pictures... but for now you can read my cohort's version of things.

Here's some scary proof I was actually there.


I'm as scared as you are... I promise.

Holy cow, those panels are hot! I want a bike like that; no, scratch that... I NEED one of those. In orange, of course.

Happy belated, Tim. Bonking sucks, but is fun to talk about after it happens.
