March 8, 2017 – my morning


The box home improvement stores were not helping me, so I visited a specialty store… Debbie’s Hardware in East Rochester. They had EVERYTHING!


I had time for a quick snow shoe run before lunch, that hurt, I have not been running… I forgot how snow the tail kicks up, but I really enjoyed being out there.


Nick Tahoe’s Garbage Plates with ex-coworkers! It was great re-telling tells of old and making fun of co-workers who blew me off! Thanks Scott, Max and Annette for meeting me!

As the Riddler said, “Riddle me this, Batman” How do you exhaust a bathroom fan that is installed at the eave and the roof vent is back about a 2 feet, clue don’t ask Lowes…. they only point to an aisle.


From the song “Low Bridge” –

I’ve got a mule and her name is Sal
Fifteen miles on the Erie Canal
She’s a good old worker and a good old pal
Fifteen years on the Erie Canal


I didn’t get 15 miles in on the Erie Canal, the snow was too deep… I have never called my bike Sal, but I had a great ride, and a great day.

OK this chore still sucks, even if only to help your daughter. Makes me glad to live in NC


Sleepy baby, she slept on my chest for over an hour as we watched basketball, between the dogs playing, TV and talking, she can sleep through anything!

for the first time in year I got to XC ski, the snow/ski combo didn’t work well, after I got my track, I wasn’t get as much glide as I wanted, so I gave up and mountain biked a while.

Up early for the 8:30am start. I slept great in the Flippac, despite the cold and snow all night.


Frame grab from the GoPro on my body from one of my many falls.


Carry the bike.


My race was just OK< it was fun, but since I have not been racing, I didn’t have an aggressive start and ended up behind folks who couldn’t ride stuff I could.


I finally settled into my on the bike, off the bike, carry the bike, push the bike, repeat. There was so much snow and we were the first to race, I was pulled after only 1 lap or almost 30 minutes. Finished 17th.


As the day went on, a race groove was formed and then became a mud track.


The moment you regret making your racing kit white!


Save the bike!


I am not sure what was worse? Deep snow or mud….


If you fall, at least make a snow angle a heckler yelled and she did it!
