Life On Two Wheels

Along the river and toward the mountains a morning shadow shimmers across the road. The rays of the first light jet through the trees and across a figure gliding upon the road. His breath trails in short spurts, petrified as it hits the icy air. All is quiet except the slight sound of the athlete as he summons himself for yet another days work. Soon the rest of the world will bustle with life as well and the brief simplicity of cyclist and nature will disappear into the everyday struggle of life in full motion; the errands and intervals, the appointments and intersections, and the deadlines and finish lines OutPaceTheRace

In the red

The wave of today was one that left the investments of mine in a state of trouncing. Indeed, I’ve learned to diversify (through trial and error), yet an equal blow was dealt to all… So the choice of what to do at once is limited, I’ve deliberated and decided to wait and ride the wave rather than sell everything to make up for the loss. Since once more becoming ill I’ve looked into a couple of options with the team doctor in an effort to quell my abnormal susceptibility to the weather. The immediate option of course was the closed file on possible surgical intervention. We will see, and with any luck, perhaps I will race the rest of the year without the plague darkening the path of mine ahead.

In the meantime, if you choose to travel to Uganda heed the advise of Mr. Andronico's short, but wise video.
