Convalescence

Convalescence

Goodness, how time flies. It’s been almost six weeks since I hit the deck, and I’m not going to lie, convalescing pretty much blows. It’s frustrating, boring, and not without its fair share of discomfort. That said, I’ve been spoiled rotten by…

May Cause Vomiting

May Cause Vomiting

“How are you?” “Terrible, actually.” He looked at me, confused. “My arm hurts.” I figured this would be obvious, “I can’t do anything. And my hair… I look like a crazy person.” Before I left the hospital, I was told…

A Humerus Thing Happened on the Morning Ride

A Humerus Thing Happened on the Morning Ride

Sorry about the title, I couldn’t help myself. Even if it meant giving away the punchline to this entire post. Yes, I crack myself up. As some of you already know, last Tuesday I was involved in a serious crash during…

Playing with Fire

Tour de France: Meet the Fab Four

Tour de France: Meet the Fab Four

So it’s the start of July, and we all know what that means. Your morning productivity is going to drop to zero, and none of your ‘normal’ friends will want anything to do with you for the entire month. It’s Tour…

2015 Team Time Trial

2015 Team Time Trial

Hi. Remember me? No, I’m not dead, I’ve just been watching Netflix. That shit rules. But seriously, I still love bikes and I still love you guys, and that’s not just the vodka talking. I promise I have oodles to tell…

Be It (Un)Resolved

Be It (Un)Resolved

A week ago I had every intention of sitting down to write a recap of the year and share a bunch of promises I have little intention of keeping. As I sharpened my gold pencil crayon and prepared for an afternoon of self-loathing, my…
