Keep on Movin'

Yes, I will admit the mantra for the past few weeks has been that Soul II Soul song.  Keep on movin, don't stop.  Life has thrown many challenges--all of the typical competing priorities of work, family, home & yard maintenance--and vacations!  My cycling has been especially consistent the past few weeks, probably the most since my regular early morning gym visits.  And, these rides have been late in the evening, refreshing after a long day. (some improved times here as well, but often… Continue

Inspiration and Overcoming (UBBT update)

The theme of the past couple of weeks in UBBT-land has been inspiration and overcoming. I have to say I hit a slump in March and April, despite explicit claims of "coming back".  I let discouragement and doubt take center stage in my mind a bit more than I would have liked.  Not altogether consciously, I started looking for inspiration (and it looked for me as well).  With the spring weather more and more of the seasoned athletes and weekend warriors are visible, and their dedication is… Continue

How was the Mustard Seed delivery today? Maybe good journal topic?
