I am hated for loving

I have seen this comment many times used and directed at forum members. I have used it one time in an obvious and sarcastic way. But mostly, I see it used as a put down. A take issue with its sincerity though. What life are they talking about.? Who's life do they want them to get. If it is their...
Been toying with this on my phone recently Today, pulgas water temple doing a 52 miler. Yesterday, canada road at hwy 92 doing a 56 miler Friday, Barnes and noble reading with son. Wednesday, listening to son sing God Bless America. I like this.
Tuesday started a little rough. Although we knew the time was coming, when it did it came very fast. 630 in the morning and I find my wife outside kneeling next to our dog buttercup. We've known for about six months that she had terminal medical problems. The vet recommended to have her live...
Memorial Day, I know and honor you. After Yesterday's sufferfest of 60+ miles and 6000+ feet of climbing, I enter today with family and bikes. We cycled along the bay trail of the San Francisco Bay estuary. Very beautiful day. Also some stretches of sand, the kids like to look for...
Hinderer "xm-18 3.5" (top left) Benchmade "940 limited edition" (bottom left) Leatherman "Charge tti" multi tool (right) I have been carrying the Benchmade for close to 13 years now. It has been used so many times, it was well worth the money I paid. Its had so much use I had to send it...
Well so much going on, morrissey concert last week and a new single to listen to today. But that is only part of my fun. Saturday I was in San Francisco meeting some friends and we were having perfect weather. Had lunch at the ferry building then watched some sick bike tricks. Sunday...
A poster in a thread on solo asked me yesterday if I was going to the show. I was not and did not have intention to. In fact I did not know it was today. It stuck in my mind though, it has been 18 years since I have been to a show. Well I went. I was working late in San Francisco and I was...
Last night I went to a race team meeting and they hired a physiotherapist to come in and talk about limiters in performance. On one of the ending PowerPoint slides this came up. I took a picture as a lasting reminder for me. I take a lot of the philosophy from sports and apply it all...
I recently pulled all the stuff I collected in the 80's and early 90's out of my attic. Looking through brought back some great memories. But they are just that, memories of a captured and transitioning time. Morrissey is mine, personally. That's it. No collective with others, just me. I see...
This is my 3 day bag. I use it often and throw it in my truck whenever I travel. I have used it several times, for example, I was recently visiting a friend in the Sierra Nevada's and it was late, so rather than drive, I had what I needed to stay overnight. First off, I believe the local...
Two nights ago, I get home and my wife shares an email with me. It was from my sons teacher, informing us that she had information he was making an inappropriate gesture to her while her back was turned in class. My wife had already spoke with my son and he said he did not do it. No mother wants...
Win
I said this on 4/11 - Step up to the start line, you will fail, fall, suffer and get bloody. But most of all you will rejoice from the experience, adversity and vanishing self doubt that comes from surviving. Hey, every now and then though, you will get a absolutely complete and crushing win...
I was sentimental so I pulled out a old old old tour shirt (at least I still fit in it). Remember these? I went to get tested again with my coach today. I had good preseason power numbers in February and was just above 10% body fat. So in about 10 week, I have gained 2lbs but gone down in...
It seems as no one has photo albums anymore. These have been pretty fun to make. It's a nice way to look at trips. With everything digital, we are trying to convert all the years of digital pictures into books. I have many years of books to make. Literally you take a 1000 pics on...
Happy Easter. I got up early and was going through my daughters homework schedule book to check the projects. This is a junior high book they give them to stay organized. It has a section on character. This is what they teach young adults so they can better manage life. I think we can all say...
I am always amazed by the difference between boys and girls. Messiness, creativeness, details. they are so polar opposite but unique and special on both sides of that spectrum. Update - Easter egg hunt
Normally homework gets completed the afternoon before but he forgot it. Luckily the classroom was open when we went to school early so he could do it. Otherwise he would have to do it during recesses. He tells me he can do it fast as he has made a rocket launching pencil. I remember...
Oh how I like being the age I am. Teens and twenties on your side, while the thirties and forties are on mine. Teens and twenties so full of change in every direction almost never standing on two feet. Still working so many life things out. An extremely exciting time though and I remember...
I have been traveling for the last couple of days and got home last night. My son wanted to camp out with me. So we slept in my room, while mommy slept in my daughters room. They are still young enough to want it so we let them as they won't be asking in the near future. Well I get up at 530...
Gnarly isn't it. Well that is racing, or life really. Feeling very strong and motivated. I put myself here, to RACE, not ride. To stand against others without fear. To go deep, face the struggle and basically see who can manage the suffering the most. I was leading the race. I made a gap...
