Sunday’s Oregonian Column: Schools Out on the Knobbies
I just sat on my bike for 8 hours and completed my longest ride to date: 126 miles. I’m whooped.
More on that tomorrow. In the meantime, my Sunday column in the Oregonian is already up online – the print version is always cooler, but they really nailed the webpage this time around. If you don’t get the paper delivered, you can check it out (with photography this time!) here.
If you’re visiting the site for the first time from the Oregonian article, welcome! The About Page gives a little overview on this blog, and I’ve listed a few of my favorite stories below in case you’re interested in reading more.
- 100 Miles to Freedom (Suffering at the hands of my first 100 mile ride.)
- My Second Road Race (Nearly devoured by a pack of wolves.)
- Three Man Rescue Team (The value of good teammates, and a lesson on survival.)
- Little Match Girl (Report from my first road race.)
- My Running Comeback (On the joy of running well.)
- On Surviving the Hard Days (Wrestling your way through the lows.)
- Epic (Cyclocross racing at the 2007 USGP in a typhoon)
