In the early nineties, I turned from running to cycling after hurting a knee.  Today I passed 235,000 miles on a bike.  I am sure there are bigger numbers out there, and yet I have to say this is a huge number of miles, and hours on a saddle.  I can't imagine bragging...

I haven't been here for a while.  There are numerous reasons.  Selling a house in the Pacific Northwest, packing a 22 foot U-Haul for a midnight run through the desert of Nevada and Arizona, and buying a new house in Phoenix is a monumental task.  Add in doing this in...
