During my hiatus from racing I still rode my bike. In fact for various reasons (I had just gotten divorced and felt like needed to do whatever the hell I wanted for a change) I rode it quite a bit at first. It did taper off some as I began to realize there was more to life than just my bicycle – like girls; but I did not really push myself too much during those years. Really pushing myself seems to require external pressure. Like a friend.

I have tried doing these stairs alone in the past and it rarely ends up being a productive workout... Thanks to my good buddy Ryan D this was a productive workout.

We walked three flights and then alternated running with walking for seven more and then walked the last three. Nice. Our runners were the fastest yet this fall. About eight or so flights in we met some of Ryan's friends and on our last runner they were cheering him on and turned it into a race! :( Ryan won. And he had to pass me to do it. Good work.

My knee? No troubles. Loving that.
