Strike a match (Spinning Profile & Playlist)

I had such a great time using my Election Day ride, I felt it was a shame to not use the profile for another 4 years.

Here's essentially the same profile with new music and 1 extra hill climb.

It wasn't at all intentional that I had music selected that made reference to fire until I went to put this post up; "Highway to Hell", "Accelerant", "Lucky Strike", and "Fireproof".


On an entirely personal note, I have signed up to do my second Ironman70.3 event with the goal of knocking 65 minutes off my time.  While that sounds like a lot, it really isn't when I did as poor as I did.  I went into the event apprehensive about the swim, which I finished in 65 minutes, and then my hip flexor injury kicked up at mile 8 on the run slowing me to a snails pace.  My goal is to get under 7 hours.  It's good to have stated, and printed goals...they help to hold you accountable.

Election Day Crazy

This election cycle can't be over soon enough for me; and this is from a guy that LOVES politics.

My issue with this particular election cycle is the polarization of people that under normal circumstances can hold intelligent, well thought out conversations, that suddenly feel it's okay to shout down opposing views and opinions.

My solution...ENDORPHINS!

I teach on Tuesday's which means I'm there right as the polls are ready to close on Tuesday night.  So here's my homage to the craziness.

Side Note:  I wanted to put Pink Floyd's - Another Brick In The Wall in this play list since there was a lot of discussion about that during this cycle, but I just couldn't find the right way to put it into the profile so here's the video anyway.




Enjoy and remember that Wednesday morning, we're all still people and we should be civil towards each other; and those that are just plain suck.

God Bless,
