Sicky McSickster

Ughhhhhh. I feel like crap. Man, this is the season for me to be sick. I just got over a nasty bug a couple of weeks ago. Ughhhhhh. Send chocolate. No wait, chocolate will feel like sandpaper on my raw throat. I coughed so much last night that I couldn’t sleep. Laying down increased the …

Weekend Events

So, this was a heck of  a weekend. Saturday marked the end of my 30DaysofBiking, so no more posts about bike rides to the grocery store or McFlurry runs. I know…you’re crazy disappointed. It was a good experience, especially because I was pushed to ride in weather that I normally would have avoided.  Now I may be less likely …

Minneapolis is a great city

I’ve been in a funny gray mood lately.  It’s not anything you would notice if you saw me; it’s just an increase in the underlying noise or static – one of those little funks that everyone seems to have now and then.  For the most part I feel great – my daily mood is happy and …
