September 03, 2017

Instagram Post: It was very overcast this morning and the ground was a little wet but I did get out for the first time this month. 20 miles on the day and felt great. Although I hate seeing the summer go, the fall generally has pretty nice #biking weather. Looking forward to a productive month. #YouVsYou #FitDontQuit #FightForIt #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: A very typical ride. No suprises to report. Felt good.

Instagram Post: These couple weeks at work are killing me. Back to School season sucks. I had a very physical day yesterday. Couldn't sleep. Went to the pool because it's raining although I rather be on my bike. At any rate a workout in the books. Exhausted now. It'll be an early to bed kinda night. #swimming #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

 

 

September 07, 2017

Instagram Post: I was able to sneak in a few #biking miles after work tonight. It felt awesome! I saw more people walking their dogs tonight then ever before. That was nothing compared to the deer I ran into. They have no fear. I just biked right past them, they didn't even move. Crazy! A couple times up and back on the trail. I absolutely needed this not only for the exercise but also the mental benefits. #FitDontQuit #FightForIt #YouVsYou #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: Felt good to ride. A lot of people on the trail but I made good time anyway. Feeling good when I ride, so ride more often.

Instagram Post: A morning ride through Grenloch before work today. Crazy looking skies, cool temperatures and a slight breeze. It was a nice morning. Then work happened. Being an adult sucks sometimes. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: Early Morning wiggles always do the trick

September 09, 2017

Instagram Post: Squeezed in some miles after work. This getting dark early now really sucks. I biked through some neighborhoods I hadn't hit in a while so that was fun. I felt okay. Honestly I'm just physically tired from work these past couple weeks but #biking has a way of mentally recharging me that no psychiatrist could ever do. Mind definitely prevailed over body on this night. #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #YouVsYou #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: The ride was okay, the mental benefits were better

September 12, 2017

Instagram Post: After work #biking adventure complete. I'm 4 weeks away from #SeaGullCentury2017 (not to mention a quick 1/2 century warm up rides in the next 3 weeks). I love #biking It does wonders for my mental state. Seriously the air smells fresher, music sounds better, my outlook on life is better. Biking has been a wonderful activity to balance the stress in my life. I just peddle it away. The more stress, the more miles. Today I did 28 miles so that'll tell you how work went! No complaints here though. It was a fun, crazy ride that took me kinda all over. Love when that happens #YouVsYou #FitDontQuit #FightForIt #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: Really good ride. Just getting on the bike after a couple days off has really created a body rest balance with good work and hard riding. This was a great ride

Day off but no #biking today. I was on campus for a Board of Directors meeting so I walked around campus. Always a pleasure being on campus and spending time with the group of people. I'll be back here soon enough for #homecoming and of course #SeaGullCentury2017

 

 

September 15, 2017

Instagram Post: Good morning everyone! Up and out and on the bike today because I work tonight. Not very epic, just hit the #gloucestertownshiphealthandfitnesstrail 2x for 13.5 miles. They lake looked peaceful and I always enjoy the train so enjoy those pics. Getting ready for my big 3 events in the next few weeks so any peddling is good peddling. Have a wonderful day my friends #biking #seagullcenturytraining #SeaGullCentury2017 #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

The Ride: just a typical ride on the trail

September 16, 2017

Instagram Post: It was a crazy day! Today I did something thought I've talked about, but never actually did before. I biked through all three high schools in my township. I also hit a few parks and some neighborhoods I hadn't been through before. I biked on some major roads which at times I didn't care for but it was a means to an end. In the end, it was 60 miles of #biking today. I felt good the entire time. The weather was perfect. I'm feeling confident about my upcoming events in the next few weeks. #seagullcenturytraining #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

The Ride: Felt really good. This ride happened out of circumstance as I was chased out of the college and the park had yo many people in it. I've wanted to do this all summer long and today I finally did it. Great sense of accomplishment.

September 18, 2017

Instagram Post: After work #biking adventure: the weather was wacky, for 2 miles dry as the Sahara then all of a sudden, rain & wetness all around. I kinda of notice this driving home so I decided to take out the mountain bike. Thick, choppy tires make the road work harder (but a hell of a lot of fun). 15.5 miles tonight on the #gloucestertownshiphealthandfitnesstrail Blenheim, Blackwood, Hilltop & Timber Cove. I've also been amazed recently at the sky and this majestic view was my backdrop for a portion of the ride. Getting out of the house definitely has its advantages #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining #SeaGullCentury2017

The Ride: The backdrop was inspiring. The peddaling was good. I went to some old favorites. I really enjoyed being out there tonight.

Instagram Post: (1) It's been a while since I've biked the #perkiomentrail trail. Let's do this! #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining #SeaGullCentury2017 (2) It's been a while since I was up in PA for #biking Today I did 2/3 of the #perkiomentrail as well as the #skippacktrail #audubonlooptrail & #palmerpark In all 32 miles today. These thinner tires made riding difficult at times but that also meant a better workout. I'm tired, sore, but very happy with this ride. A lot of elevation & terrain changes made for a fun and challenging ride. Also always nice to get a different change of scenery from time to time. This was a fun day. #FitDontQuit #FightForIt #YouVsYou #SeaGullCentury2017 #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: So hard at times with the rough terrain and skinny tires. I think this workout was harder then the 60 mile ride. At was a blast though. I hit all the areas I wanted to and took in a different scenery then I normally have for biking. Wins all around

September 22, 2017

Instagram Post: Happy #FirstDayOfFall a little after work #biking adventure through all parts #Grenloch tonight. 13.5 miles. Enough to pump the blood a bit. Just adding miles and muscle memory whenever I can. Big events coming up soon. Another majestic looking sky tonight. I dig sunsets. #seagullcenturytraining #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #SeaGullCentury2017

The Ride: Not a lot of time tonight so I did the old Grenloch circuit. A good ride with elevation when time is a factor.

September 25, 2017

Instagram Post: Up early before work today. It's the home stretch - I'm only 101 miles away from my 2017 goal of #biking 3000 miles. I'm trying to do it before the end of the month. Hit the #gloucestertownshiphealthandfitnesstrail this morning and did a big chunk of it. 28 miles down. Having a short term goal has been really inspiring to me. Then ...... to obliterate my goal over the next three months!! #seagullcenturytraining #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

The Ride: Using the trail to stay active. Just a ride I've done a hundred times. These days build bigger and better days.

September 26, 2017

Instagram Post: Another morning ride, another big chunk of the goal down. 25 miles through Blackwood Estates today. A quiet ride, a familiar ride, a ride that can add up mileage while staying close to the homestead. 4 more days left in the month, I'm off 2 of them and I have about 41 miles to go in order to complete my 2017 mileage goal (in 9 months). Getting ready for the big events in the next couple weeks. #FitDontQuit #FightForIt #YouVsYou #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: I like this ride because there is generally no cars or people around. I've done it early morning, dusk, weekends, weekdays, midnight madness, etc. A comfort ride

September 27, 2017

Instagram Post: Off today so that means it's a #biking day. I went through Wedgewood and parts near by. The weather has been crazy so far this month but it's supposed to cool off tomorrow. Today was 25 miles and a good ride. I'm now only 13.05 miles from 3000 miles on the year. If it doesn't happen Friday it will Saturday. After that I will selectively ride a few times in preparation for my 3 events in a 10 day period. 2017 has been a crazy #biking journey so far! #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: Rough ride didn't feel great. More about the mileage then anything else today. Went through Wedgewood for a change of scenery.
