Day #49 – #53: Week of June 4, 2017 (Life)

"Life is one funny mothafucka, A true comedian, you gotta love him, you gotta trust him" This week, I managed to ride over 100 miles in just 5 days. Unfortunately, my outer shift cable snapped as I pedaled through my 27th mile yesterday so I couldn't complete my 60-mile ride as planned. It sucked, but at least I ...

Day #48 – May 20th, 2017 (‘Half-Century’)

"Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion" Yesterday, for the first time, I managed to ride 50 miles straight. It was hard, and I almost gave up about 100 times, but I managed to finish. I am so proud of myself and the progress I've made. It's taken everything I have, but ...

"Maybe it's not always trying to fix something broken. Maybe it's about starting over and creating something better. " This weekend I finally got out and rode my bike for longer than an hour. The wind was almost unnoticeable, so I had an awesome ride. It took me a little under 3 hours to finish 40 ...

"What are we doing tomorrow? The same thing we do everynight. Try to take over the world." Today I finally felt like my old self again. The weather is starting to come around, and today the El Paso sun warmed my body as I rode to a very awesome lunch with my friend Art.  It's ...

"Think training's hard? Try losing." Got out riding yesterday for quite the ride. I did a few hills that almost killed me! Today my wife and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary, and although the winds are still going strong, I can't wait to go out and hit the road tomorrow. I will try my ...

Day #44 – May 6th, 2017 (‘#BikeMonth’)

"Think training's hard? Try losing." It feels so good to be back! I missed talking to you guys and I missed riding my bike even more. I was finally able to give it my all this week, as I rode my bike for 20 quick miles on Thursday afternoon. Today I hope to get in ...

Day #43 – April 19th, 2017 (‘Stronger training’)

"Think training's hard? Try losing."   I am sad to announce that the launch of my YouTube channel has been postponed. My computer couldn't handle the "awesomeness", so I must wait, but whatever lol. Today I had an awesome short ride and for the first time in a while realized that I am getting much ...

Day #42 – April 18th, 2017 (‘A little afraid’)

"A little fear is good for a fellow, it keeps him from getting over-confident." As outgoing as I am, I am a little afraid of launching my YouTube channel tomorrow. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I enjoyed filming it. I'd like to remind everyone that my YouTube series debuts tomorrow afternoon! ...

Day #40 – April 13th, 2017 (‘A new record’)

"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world." A long time ago (way before my weight loss journey), my first cycling mentor told me that the first step in becoming a cyclist was to ...

Day #39 – April 10th, 2017 (‘A new beginning’)

"Starting today, I need to forget what's gone, appreciate what still remains, and look forward to what's coming next." Ten days from today I'll be debuting my first YouTube video. I'm a nervous wreck but I hope everything goes well and you guys like what I do. On another note, Trish and I will be ...

"Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and celebrating it for everything that it is." I'm glad to be alive and able to share my journey with each and everyone of you. It hasn't been easy, but thanks to your constant support I continue to prosper. This ...
