Introduction I like to bike. Like a lot of people, I biked everywhere as a kid. I rode MTB for many years too. I wrecked my low back (at work) in 2005, and had two subsequent surgeries at the L5 S1 level. I had a choice; become a pill popper, or get off my duff and work hard. What do you think I chose? I started my 2nd biking life (road bikes this time) on March 16, 2006, after healing up enough to do short rides. Now nearing the end of 2010, I'm at over 10,000 miles riding-over 1,000 of those miles were ridden in May 2009, when I rode from Charleston SC to Washington DC over 11 days. I started running again early in 2008. I ran a 1/2 marathon in August '08, and did my 1st marathon (Milwaukee Marathon) on Oct 4th 2009, in 4 hours. My 2nd Marathon is done, Oct 3rd 2010, Milw Marathon, 4h 10m. Now, I've started swimming too. That means Triathlon! What else can me and my bad back do? 2011 will be the year of Tri! IMoo here I come!
