Centering Myself

Something I look forward to every summer is the chance to see our galaxy center. It’s a humble reminder that I’m not the center of the universe and there is something bigger beyond.

Jack’s First Full Marathon

Sometimes, Jack and I are so similar, it makes sense that we’re brothers. Other times, we’re complete opposites, and it makes sense that we’re brothers.

I despise running. Specifically, long-distance running. I’ve been a decent sprinter but I have always languished for anything longer. It was only after training for a 5K that I ever ran a mile in under 10 minutes.

It doesn’t surprise me that Jack is the opposite. He has been training to do a full marathon for years now. I thought a half-marathon was his end goal, but it was actually training for a full marathon.

The weekend before his 40th birthday, he crossed a toilet paper finish line, since we’re in a pandemic.

Bike and Run from Sellwood to NW 21st

Jack has a goal to run a full marathon by his 40th birthday. Even though I think it’s crazy, I joined him on his training run on my bike.

My longest ride so far at 18.53 miles. That Taylor’s Ferry Road climb though…

I’ve heard of wives who let their husbands have a day to themselves, but Jenni flipped the idea for Father’s Day. She organized a family bike ride and a gaming party with my kids.

I Love You Three Thousand

Biking Q&A

I recently participated in a virtual panel about biking with my coworkers for the Bike More Challenge. I suggested the idea to host a panel to encourage people to bike for fitness and for transportation.
