Outside All Day

We Have to be Outside

Riding your bike at 6am…is fun right?

My buddy Matt Smart came down from Manhattan Beach to ride Whiting Ranch this morning. To miss the traffic he left his house at 5 am to meet me by 6am. I’m not a huge fan of getting up in the 5 am hour but in the last 6 weeks I have been meeting that hour more frequently. The ride was fun and it was nice to remember the cool temps of the..

Say, Yummy Little PB&J Bars!

Check out the products from our supporter Bonk Breakers energy bars. These little peanut butter and jelly bars are delightful. If you need any other convincing that they’re good look on the cover of this months Triathlete Magazine.

After 24 Hours of Racing I Wouldn’t Even Talk…

After 24 Hours of racing I wouldn’t even talk to people because I would be so drained or almost dead. However, the coolest mountain biker I have ever met, Tinker Juarez, took the time this past weekend to say hello. The most astonishing part to Tinker saying hello, was not just his politeness after racing for 24 hours, but he stopped an interview to look up and wave as I asked to take.. Read More

Two 3rd places in one day

Today, Labor Day 2007, Julie and I ran in the Rancho Santa Margarita 5k. This next statement will peg me as a true old man dad. It was fun to be involved with a community event. Over 1,300 people raced and thousands more were out checking out the booths, eating pancakes and getting sunburned. Julie and I even had our dogs with us as we walked around the booths pushing Carter in the.. Read More
