  • Inspiration abounds

    Inspiration abounds for the old guy

    A few weeks ago I mentioned that a couple of stories I did on local athletes combined with the pain I experienced refereeing some middle school basketball games had motivated me to get back on my bike and start exercising again.

    Well, almost a month later I have ridden about 10 times with most of the rides being only 10 miles long.

    At this point I’m sure some of you are thinking, “Only 10 miles. Are you kidding?”
