I had over 2000 miles in my legs by October of 2009. Maybe not a lot of miles by some standards, but for me it was plenty. I had spent the first 1000 miles getting ready to ride the Kokopelli Trail in April, 2009. I rode Falcon Trail a lot - it’s my lunch time ride. I rode Palmer Park. I rode bike paths to get to Palmer Park. I rode bike paths to get to other bike paths.
During that year I rode a lot with a buddy who rode a single speed 29er.…Continue

Ok, it is no secret that I am fat. As a matter of fact, I have become more man than my wife originally married. I didn't realize that the ring around my finger would eventually be joined by the ring around my waist. I went from a sub 20-minute 5k runner before marriage to a sub 20-minute miler 20 years later.
Let's face it. I am too chubby to boogie. I'd like to boogie but I am much too fat. I am tired of saying excuse me, large belly…
Around 6 on Tuesday nights, friends and family know where to find you: downtown, breezing through a 5K with the Jack Quinn's Running Club (jackquinnsrunners.com) and
then downing a discounted Odell pint up against Quinn's bar as sweat
drips down your back.
We're certainly not telling you to stop this ritual, but did you know you can run (and drink) almost every day of the week?…Continue

There. I made it. Three days to ride the Kokopelli Trail. On a singlespeed, mind you. It was hard, but not as hard as the first time. Or the second, really. The first, I was out of shape, and out of my element. On the second trip, I was definitely in shape physically. Mentally, I think the trail still had me. It didn't help my friend got knocked out on the first morning - we'd trained together for 5 months for this. I was a little…Continue
