Now 60% of the fingers on my right hand are injured…watch out thumb and pinky! This afternoon I was pulling the garage door down with all of my might while my hand was on a ledge that closes in as the door straightens. Who knew!? I was paralyzed for a moment with my two fingers […]

I’ve been warming up to riding as a vehicle, and riding here in Cville is SO much better than the fierce drivers in Charlotte. Just add a big "2" Before we got countrified, […]

Mornin’ Feeling smooth today. Matt and I were supposed to go running first thing because we have a lot of errands to run today, but Bikram did a number on my spine! I’m pretty stiff/sore, so I’m taking a rest day to run the errands instead of the roads. Composition Half banana, half peach (Matt […]
