My left hand is out of commission for a while. No matter who you are, riding a bike comes with risk. It is not necessarily risky, but there is a level of risk. Is that clear? Or have I just contradicted myself? Mountain biking is a big deal out here. And by “out here” I […]
DISCLAIMER There is little mention of triathlon in this post. In fact, it’s somewhat about breakfast and airline travel and authenticity. It’s not that breakfast is terribly exciting or noteworthy. The real purpose of this post is to share an experience I recently had which could inspire others to enjoy the richness of life beyond […]
Fifty seven years in the rear view mirror. If experiences were pages in a book, the book of LG would be thicker than the dictionary at the back of a 1973 4th grade classroom.

As a new resident of San Juan County New Mexico, I’m getting to know some of the life long residents of this area. Lori and I met one the other day while we were out on a run through the BLM land adjacent to our house. B.L.M. stands for Bureau of Land Management. It’s a […]
What would you do if the airline that delivered you to a race lost your gear bag days before an IRONMAN event? That could have devastating consequences on a race. Maybe a wetsuit was in the bag, along with bike shoes and running shoes. There are not many people who would run a marathon barefoot […]
