Today I had my performance bike fitting by Russell Cree at Upper Echelon Fitness in Portland. I admit, I felt a little like Lance Armstrong in my tri suit, bike on a trainer, having my movement analyzed by a computer. The whole process took about 2-1/2 hours, and at one time, I had three people…

Well, whoops! I missed my weekly posting date! Thanks, girlfriend Rachel, for keeping me honest and on track by subtly asking if my blog feed updater was broken…doh!

Why I’m Vegan

My friend, Ranger John, asked me during one of his Dark Forest podcasts in December to explain why I’m vegan. I promised to do that, unfortunately it wasn’t as prompt as I promised!

I am now a member of 24 Hour Fitness! There is a beautiful facility exactly 3 miles from my house, close enough for me to run or bike to, and it’s on the way to (and from) work. I haven’t signed up before because I have been able to exercise by running and biking just…
