Flashback to Fly Buddies

Photo copyright MustangMustangPosted by Picasa I was looking through my referral logs today to figure out how in the world I got 260 visits in one day! (It was thanks to Grand Rounds…I hadn’t submitted, but got included anyway) Somebody landed on my website by doing a search for “P-51s in Korea”. I went and read the post, and it…

Verona Night Ride

Tonight I showed up for the weekly “Girlie Ride”, and guess what? Aside from the leader, and a guy, I was the only “girlie” that showed up. So off we went, and we went fast! The leader, in addition to being a Spanish teacher, is a mountain bike racer, and she’s taken 2nd place in each of the last 2…

The Emergency Medicine Residents Association has…

Tonight, it seemed like…

My pace was not quite what I had anticipated for myself, but it was good enough to win a slot for next year’s invitation only Escape from Alcatraz triathlon. Yes, it’s what it sounds…
