I started riding again in August of 2006. I have always battled weight problems, running never seemed to work for me and now that I am in my 30's it just seemed like the right time to get serious about this. I have always enjoyed riding bikes, so it seemed like a long overdue decision.

2006 and most of 2007 went very well for me. 2008 was bad...several life changing events took place. 2009 offers new hope that I can get back to the person I want to be.

OK...fast forward a few years. 2009, 10, 11, 12...I pretty much muddled through things. I think I was a great dad and put in a lot of time at work. Went through several different relationships...but none stuck. I also could not stick to any sort of fitness plan.

A plan is in place. I feel ultra motivated. It's time to ride!
