Early morning at the gym. I have lost 25 pounds since March 28, today I was even able to wear my South Carolina State Mountain Bike Champion shirt I won in 2014. I always thought it was funny they got a size large for the Clydesdale winner….

Live demos and equipment issues. I never practice or use my personal equipment in my live demos, I don’t mind having problems and I talk out loud through my trouble shooting… today was a new one…. no matter what the flash was doing a full dump. I said that is not 1/128th power…. I might change my approach ; )

I had forgotten how much fun the trails at the US National Whitewater Center are… or maybe I never knew since I have only ridden there twice, once a pre-ride the week before and the next week for a Southern Classic MTB series race. The trails have everything; climbs, slalom runs, and flow-y single track. After I left the center, I was able to ride alone for 2 hours, I don’t think I doubled a trail, and didn’t see a soul! I stopped back at the truck for quick break and then another hour. How is this break down. 1st hour I listened to AC/DC, second hour Oingo Boingo and third hour, The Fools (a Boston based bar band)

The series isn’t racing there this year, but I will go back! Worth the ride!

Our USTA team was undefeated going into tonight’s match in High Point. I played #2 doubles and started horrible, lost my first two service games, and wasn’t hitting clean shots… luckily my partner kept us in it and we were only behind 5-3 when I turned it around… we won 1st set 7-5 and my service game came back the second set for several aces and we won 6-3. Sadly we lost the other two courts….. post match drink at Brown Truck Brewery.

A good day. Several meetings at work and a lab. Erin and I did a 1/2 hour walk at lunch. After work I got in a 1.5 hour bike ride in windy conditions. So why am I holding racket? The USTA team I play for has not lost this season, so the pressure is mounting, then I got bumped to #2 doubles…. no problem till last night at Asheboro men’s tennis, I played like CRAP, serve was off and ground strokes were working…. so after the bike, I played 1.5 hours of singles. At least I played better tonight, hopefully USTA on Thursday goes well!
