Shameless selfie after a run, before trying on shorts. I needed a boost! LOL!

Hello, world!

I am a busy doctoral student, full time adminstrator at a college, and artist. I have discovered that as I devote more time to my studies and career, the more sedentary I have become. I do not want to sacrifice one for the other and I am ready to find balance in my life.

Hi Amy,

Thanks for your comment on my "Pedaling a Bulldozer - Fat Bike" blog. I bundle-up against the cold and pedal like crazy. I also found there is acclimation to hot and cold climates.

I have a powerful crawler snow blower so I haven't given much thought to plowing snow with my fat bike. However, the though of a snow plowing fat bike is hilarious.

Enjoy your SoCal weather. I hope you are getting out on your bike once in a while.

Thanks, Bruce

I agree with your comment on my status a couple of days ago. Some days just kick your butt. Could be nutrition or hydration the day before. But, I felt really bad on that 3 mile run, and yesterday's 5.5 miler I felt much better, with lots of energy. - Vic

Hey! Thanks for the shoes. Maybe I need them, I ended up with a blister yesterday. UGH - But I also forgot to use Glide on my feet. Guess I was just anxious to get out there and get it over with. LOL

What race are you running - when?
