Well semi-retirement is nice and relaxed! Been fat and happy for a while and getting the itch to ride, run and even swim. Been doing some riding, very minimal mileage, but it is nice to get out even in the blistering heat. I am getting on the P90X bandwagon (again) modified until November, when I will do the full program as my off-season or return-to-racing preparation for next summer. What has happened since my last entry is quite astounding. Without the pressures of race preparation and relaxed nature of working out 3 to 4 times per week, I am finding that some "fun" is beginning to enter back into exercise. I also visited the Endo and my A1C is coming back into line (7.3 sown from 8.3) Still a YIKES, but moving in the right direction! Finally, as I continue in my semi-retirement, I will be passing along my best wishes to those who are passing me on the road as the prep for their upcoming races.

Well it is time to day good-bye to racing for now. Over the past 2 seasons, I haven't been able to muster the strength and motivation to train seriously for a race and I decided to retire from competitive racing for the time being. As I enter into semi-retirement, I am committed to making a comeback in the future. I will be updating this blog from time to time just to waste some of my new found free time.....
