    The Greeks like to stroke the cock, whisper in the ear of the cock and play around with it in the yard .

    If you weren't so damn old you would stroke yours too, but what's the sense if it can't get hard?

    Yeah, I've made a Shiner Bock cheesecake before and wouldn't mind attempting one with a porter or a stout.

    People love their comfort zones.
    People naturally donít prefer change.
    I know I don't. I would like to think that I embrace change but when I really reflect on things that I'm doing or decisons that I make, I'm not at all a fan of change.

    I go to the same grocery store on the same day of the week at the same time of day and push my shopping cart around the same pattern in the shopping isle maze picking up the same food items in the same quantity to make the same meals for the same days of the week from the same recipe books. OK, so Iím exaggerating a bitÖ but only a bit.

    I love hearing your summertime stories of going to new places & having new adventures. Same with Big Red & her touring stories. We would love to branch out a bit, we need to start branching out more from our ďsame ole same oleĒ to grow.

    Didn't cut it this time, I just moderate it. So far it seems like I eat 1-2 per month and what is funny is when you start moderating things, you start to make a more conscious effort about what you are eating and that itís a high quality item. Flour tortillas for example, the best in New Braunfels are from a place called Los Gallos and when I go, I ask for one fresh off the grill and itís amazing how awesome they end up tasting because Iíve not had them in a while and Iíve reached for my most favorite/high quality item.

    Iíve just been playing the calorie-in/calorie-out game (if you burn more than you consume, you lose). Iíve also tried to do the best I can about my intake of preservatives & fried items. Iím not 100%, but Iím more conscious about it and end up doing better overall.

    A certain lurker on this site has also introduced me to the Paleo regiment. Again, Iím not on it 100% but try my best to be and it ends up helping.

    3/27/2011 Rock & Roll Marathong.

    Heading back about 4 months... Dec. 1st timeframe, Jennifer turned to me and asked "hey, there's a 1/2 marathon at the end of March, we're free that weekend, do you want to run it with me". I opted in. I knew if by chance I got selected for Leadville, this run would help me get jump started on shreadding some LBS.
    We surfed over to halhigdon dot com and grabbed his novice half marathon training program. For the rest of December I started building up to a 5 mile run as Hal's presecribed schedule would kick off the first part of January. I did the run/walk routine at first with more walking than running, over time switched to 50/50 run/walk and eventually was able to switch over to all running, but just took it easy.

    Yesterday was D-Day. We both finished. We both thought it was easier than expected. Running S U C K S! but we'd both do it again... even considering the full marathong distance.

    On the bus ride from the State Fair grounds where parking/finish were over to Dallas City Hall where the start was located, I went to turn on my iPod and queue up my playlist that I made special for this event. It had lots of good songs to help me mentally including Rage Against the Machine and James Brown.

    I press the "on" button and:



    NO BUENO!!!!! I had charged it the day before but when I put it away must of turned it on and started playing
    But it didn't turn out all that bad, they had bands setup and playing every mile or so along the route and in between I would just sing to myself. The very last band before coming into Fair Park was playing some George Clinton & Parliment, they had a horn section and they finished up the song when I was about 100 meters from them. I screamed "JAMES BROWN" at the top of my lungs... with that horn section, I knew they were bound to know some James Brown. The lead singer looked square at me and counted the band into "I Feel Good". I got up to the front of their stage and jogged in place for about 2 minutes paying my proper respects to the band for playing my request and to the late-great hardest working man in showbidness.

    200 meters from the finish, the Texas Longhorn marching band was setup and playing Led Zepplin's Kashmire as I ran by them so despite that iPod battery issue, things worked out OK.

    If you are a single guy, you should consider taking up running. There are about 15 bazillion cute, single women that are out there at these running events... one of their sole reasons for running is so that they look good naked.

    After the run they had a nice concert with Bret Michaels. He sang most of the hits from when he was in Poison and also some Lynard Skynard tunes.


    Do you see me? I'm one of those 15,000 people running.

    Rock & Roll.


    Embrace the suck.

    3/28/11 - Toobin' @ 203lbs. No rest for the stupid. The Phoenix is our favorite place when we go out in New Braunfels. They make one of the top 3 best burgers in town, no smoking (and it's not even the law yet), and they have great live music. They are famous for their Chili, it is very good but also a bit salty imho. They also have incredible blackberry cobbler.



    One of my best buds from growing up, Matt & I got to meet one of the owners, April of Two Tarts Bakery @ The Phoenix one night a few weeks ago. She had baked a "birthday cake" that day as the Phoenix was celebrating their first year of bidness. After much conversing, it turns out he went to the same high school as Matt & I did, but a decade later than us. After high school, moved to Portland for a few years and then moved back to NB. When she moved back, she and her sister (the other Tart) started a catering business and eventually started backing cookies, cakes & pies for our local Saturday Farmers Market. There was an entrepreneur type guy that would come to the Market every Saturday to buy their baked goods and eventually offered to help them get a bakery of their own off the ground. Their main competitor in town is Texas' oldest bakery... Naegelins, although they offer a different product set so it's almost like they don't have enough in common to be competitors. Naegelins is mostly about old-world baked goods like strudel, kolaches, ect. Two Tarts seems to offer more modern items. If you're ever in New Braunfels and want to give them a try they are on Castell Ave, just off the downtown square across from McAdoo's Seafood & Myron's Steakhouse.

    I only get to enjoy taking pics of their goods.

For the past 10 years, I’ve drifted away from racing and instead working events and for lack of better term had “let myself go”. I was fat and unhealthy as well, unhappy with my riding. I was not riding my bicycle enough and when I did, was usually bummed out that I did not have all of the fitness that I once had and coupled with that was not able to be as good of a technical rider as I would like to be.
    Feb 28th. I was at home paying bills online and happened to notice my account was charged by the Leadville 100 organization for an amount of money that equaled the entry fee to the race. They were to announce if you were selected in the lottery via email the very next day, but their charge to my account the day prior gave the surprise away a day early for me. Iím not sure if it was a moment of joy or a moment of ďwhat the heck have I gotten myself intoĒ. If youíve followed the story thus far, you already know that I started preparing for it when I signed up back in November.

    My good friend, Dr. Doug Webb has done the event a few times and recommended that I print out a copy of the acceptance letter and tape it to my bathroom mirror so that I always remember not to forget to prepare for this event every single day. Iím not sure that would have gone over so well with the person I share the bathroom with so I printed off two copies and have one hanging up in my cube & on the door that leads from the garage to the house.

    Itís an honor and a privilege to have been selected and I am not going to disgrace that.
    Perhaps itís a once in a lifetime opportunity, so I decided the moment I signed up to give it everything I have to give.

    Hey Toobin', remember not to forget!

    Congratulations on being selected. I know this is something you really wanted to do. Now you have a purpose to make the training worthwhile. Time now to start working on the screenplay and auctioning off the movie rights.
    Raise your skill level to the level of the trail, donít bring the level of the trail down to your riding level.

    Don't mind me, I'm just along for the ride.

    Holy crap, Toobin'...you've been Microsoft certified since 1999?! Much has changed since then.

    Oh, and about that other thing you're working on...I have great confidence in your ability to prepare well and attain your goals. May good luck also be yours.

    congrats! Hit them thar hills, hard and often.

    Do you need a huckleberry to keep the post ride beer cold or mix up a batch of post event margaritas? Lord knows you deserve some top shelf regardless of the outcome. Or maybe a flunky to keep the guitar tuned?
