Wake up frustrated? Didn’t sleep but 5 hours or so…. spend 20 minutes (or until your knuckles hurt) on the punching bag before starting the weights circuit and you will feel better!
I am calling it official, finally below 190, after a week at 190, I thought I had plateaued, but this is 3 days at 187ish.
Another day in Uwharrie National Forest, Sam and I hiked south from the Jumping Off Rock trail head, it’s a cool hike, up a rocky climb, along a spine between hilltops, and down rollers, turn around and reverse back to the truck.
The group photo at the Old North State Land Cruisers Relic Run. Everything from 40s, a 55, 60s and 70s series trucks!

6:30am and the gym is all mine!
Now down 30 pounds and my 1998 Ironman Canada Dead Runners Society jersey now fits….
First 50 miler of the year, I averaged 17.1 through 2:10, the last 50 minutes I dropped to 16.4 as I have 3 climbs over 10% to get home.
My match was supposed to be at 7:30, guess what time it started raining…..
The old Black and White checkered floor in the gallery and kitchen is coming up. The last renovation project!
I did a live demo for the Small Format class of lighting their “Workplace” assignment.
Using school gear and not practicing, I always find broken things, today, the hotshoe on the D700 was not working….
Khadejeh stopped by school today and noticed the old Nikon D1x on my shelve, she wanted to know what 5 megapixels from 2001 looked like….
A great day of biking, over 3 hours of single track, most of it all to myself. I started somewhat early and did Owls Roost, Wild Turkey and Reedy Fork for 1.5 hour out, then turned around to negative split the ride backwards. My avg speed was higher than normal and I felt smooth. I added on a bit at the end before lunch!
The Taco is cleaned up, after sitting by the fire last night and a dusty day in Uwharrie (plus not having washed it for a couple of weeks) it was time.
Is there anything prettier than a new chain? After last week’s rain race, plus 3 rides this week, the chain was 100+% worn out.
