Long Time No Post

Ho Hum.  I have been running (a bit) cycling (a lot) and continuing to teach FitMx and Yoga.  So I haven’t been lazy, drifty, or inconsistent.  Quite the opposite.  Dreams do come true as Michael Darling has become addicted to cycling, or maybe the endorphins, but certainly to spending long glorious rides with me!  It all started when I returned from the  LIVESTRONG Assembly where I heard about RAGBRAI (The Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa).  RAGBRAI is seven-day bicycle ride across the state of Iowa–in July no less–and is the oldest, largest and longest bicycle touring event in the world.  I causally mentioned that it was not a race, more like a week long party or even Burning Man on a bike.  One thing lead to another and now we are training for to ride in 2014.  I have told students countless times over the years the importance of setting goals and getting a buddy to exercise with and boy oh is it true.  I am generally a self motivator but Michael is a true inspiration and spending our weekends planning, negotiating and riding are turning out to be more fun than I ever imagined.  So, moral of the story…keep open to the unusual.  Read more about our adventure and other unusual days Micheal’s  blog.
