Imagine how things could be ... then work to make it a reality

I've been on Spark for a while now ... however, in the past 1 - 1/2 years I have been gone. A back injury basically kept me from doing any real exercise ... but time to change that. I gained back about 10 of the 17 pounds I lost. Not to worry though, I just need to get back on track ... here we go woo woo.

Now that I got the touchy-feely stuffs out of the way....I'm Greg.

I live in that other place. "Other" place??? Well...I mean near Portland. Not Portland, ...

I live in that other place. "Other" place??? Well...I mean near Portland. Not Portland, Maine...that other Portland, near Oregon. Actually, I reside in Washington. Uhhh...not D.C....the other Washington...the state I mean. And while we're at it....let's toss in Vancouver. No, no...not Vancouver BC...the other Vancouver! Seeee...that "other" place.

Hey. I think I can hit the 50000, though today might be a zero word count day, stoopid headache. It will be a busy last week.

Anyway I wanted to let you know that you are awesome and a GREAT cheerleader.

I'm going to try to attempt to address everything from your comment on my blog... emoticon

I did 9 this past weekend. No need to go into pain. haha

True, 7 miles IS long. haha Just keeping things in perspective. You can't imagine my elation in just doing 7 miles. :)

right now.. I'm going for "just freakin' finish" My next goal is to be able to run and be comfortable at a 12 min mile. I can do this pace, just not for long. So yeah.. first goal is 12 and if I get down to 10.. WooHoo! I think speed, unless you're actually racing and out to get medals and what not, is a pretty personal thing, meaning it differs from person to person. For some a 12 min mile is nothing to brag about. For some, it's a 6 min mile. As far as setting your goals to high or too low (too fast, too slow) I suppose it depends on where you are now, and probably a few other factors (injuries/pain). But, no. I haven't seen an article, but NOW I'll look for one and share if and when I find it.

Thursday! THIS Thursday! :) My run is at 8 am. and I better be done before you start! It is a 5K, I'm hoping it's a flat one.

I'll for sure post something while my cherry pie is baking! :)

Ha ha! Thanks so much for sympathizing about the stoopid rain! Fortunately, it has moved out of the area and I won't have to arrive at work a soggy mess tomorrow! You're a good buddy!

Hi Greg,

My BSc in in Mining Engineering with a Minor in coal mining. I have advanced degrees in Systems Design, Economics and Mathematics. I took courses in extractive metallurgy and physical metallurgy.

When is comes to the purchase of something that is as high-tech as bicycles, I just consider myself an informed consumer.

I have a large "collection" of bike parts, including stems, handlebars, grips, cranks, derailers, shifters, wheels, hubs, chains, saddles, seatposts, pedals, headsets, cables and tires. I mean, I have lots of tires.

I have a complete set of bike-specific tools. I have experimented with components and geometry and know what I like. Each bike I own has a different purpose; and different strengths and weaknesses.

I no longer have a pure road bike. But I have a multi-purpose cross bike, which suits me better. The cross-bike is the only "compromise" bike I own. All my mountain bikes are for optimized for a specific application. Two are racing bikes. The Bronson is an all-mountain racing bike. The 29" Stumpjumper FSR Expert is an endurance racing bike. Little Cam and Little Stumpy are supreme trail bikes. Little Cam is a full suspension bike. Little Stumpy Is a hardtail. My Canfield is a single-speed skill -building and exercise bike. My 9:Zero:7 is a high-performance snow bike.

My bikes are carbon-fiber, aluminum and chrome-moly steel. Each material provides a different feel and experience. Yup, I know I am a bit OCD when it comes to bikes.

Thanks, Bruce
