And on the seventh day he worked out

Stuck (standstill at 4pm yesterday) in traffic trying to get on I-4. Where do you get your energy from?


And on the seventh day “he” worked out.

He being me.

Cheryl spent all week out of town handling a stressful situation.

We agreed to forego Church yesterday morning.

i had no intention Saturday to ride my bike to the gym, workout, and ride home.

But it happened anyway.

There’s a new, second reason why i drive to run

Historically, the only time i drive to run is for a 5k race.

But we left the house at 5:40am this morning to drive to a Saturday High School Cross Country practice. That’s a new reason to drive to run – being part of a team.

Otherwise, i’m not a fan of driving to run. Time is precious.

PS. The 16-year old (as of yesterday) set two PR’s this morning:

  1. Longest continuous run time at 31:30.
  2. Longest distance without walking at 2.5 miles.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.


Le Tour de France

Le Tour de France is in it’s 96th running.

What’s the point?  It’s a 21-day competition.  Over 3,500 miles.  Seriously, 3,500 miles.  Think about it.

Some say it’s the world’s toughest athletic competition.  I would have to agree.

Time trials.  Flats. Sharp turns. Mountains.  For 21 days.  And these cyclists are riding hard.  Every single day.

Punishing. Grueling.  Relentless.

And then there’s this guy, maybe you’ve heard of him, Lance Armstrong.

Seven consecutive Tour de France victories.

Excellence.  Focus.  Drive.  Strategy.  Perseverance.  Tenacity.  Intensity.

Traits to live by, eh?

Or as Lance Armstrong suggests – traits to Live Strong!

Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
