Instagram Post: Beautiful day today. Go outside and do something. I went #biking (I know, you can't believe I went biking). 20 miles around town. I didn't go for speed, distance, training, etc. I simply enjoyed the great weather. #YouVsYou

The Ride: Just a fun day on a bike. Went through many neighborhoods throughout downtown Blackwood today. A solid ride. Felt good, legs a little sore but overall I was happy with today.

Instagram Post: I went for a ride and I felt terrible. My head feels awful. Wasn't feeling like this before the ride. I think early to bed and a lot of rest is in the very near future. #biking

The Ride: I felt horrible. At first I thought it was just the uphill climbs but soon it became a constant feeling. My body was telling me something wasn't right was I called it a day. Still 15 miles was a decent effort.

Instagram Post: It was hot out there today (in the 90s). I took it slow and steady and felt much better than yesterday. 28 miles of #biking today. Spring is finally here as the trees are blooming. So for @crobromo here are the #lilacs (you need smellovision because they do smell great. It's been a rough time lately but today definitely did not suck. Until tomorrow #YouVsYou #FightForIt #BadDaysBuildBetterDays #LilacsInBloom and for @dc__34 #Hashtag

The Ride: Hot out there. I felt better physically today. I'm still not where I want to be though. I'll just keep going out each day and I'll get the groove back. The wind actually cooled things off a bit. Smelling the trees and flowers was something I needed although I didn't realize I needed it.

Instagram Post: If you've followed this blog, then you know I love incorporating holidays into my recaps so #MayThe4thBeWithYou It is gorgeous out there today so go play! I spent most of my #biking activity today in #gloucestertownshipcommunitypark riding the trails, parking lots, etc. It's been 5 consecutive days on a bike now (I can't tell you the last time that happened) but I'm feeling very good about it. It's a rough patch right now, but each day I am searching for one thing positive to build on. That's my wisdom of the day. #YouVsYou #BadDaysBuildBetterDays #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #Hashtag

The Ride: Nice tempurature today so thats a plus. I went to the park and rode the trails, I haven't done that in a while. It was pretty empty out there which worked in my favor. The ride was steady and consistent. I am feeling pretty good.

Instagram Post: It's a double holiday!! Whoo Hoo!! Get excited!! #RevengeOfThe5th #CincoDeMayo It cooled off over night which made the temperature very nice this morning. The lawn definitely needed to be cut ? Then although my legs were tired, I didn't want to break the streak so I hit the trail for a couple laps ? So work done, play done and now the rest of the day to do whatever. Win!! #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #Biking #10000steps #BadDaysBuildBetterDays #Hashtag

The Ride: Lawn Care needed to be done and that tired me a little bit. The body said no, but I really wanted to keep the biking streek alive so I did a casual ride on the trail. A good day all things considered.

Instagram Post: Visiting the family in PA today. Took my sister and nephew for a #biking adventure on the #perkiomentrail & #AudobonLoopTroop 18 miles of fun family quality time. Proud of them. Long ride, a lot of resistance and hills. Nobody complained and only one minor bike issue but all is good. I enjoyed today very much #FightForIt #YouVsYou #FitDontQuit #BadDaysBuildBetterDays #SundayFunDay #Hashtag

The Ride: Back on the Perkiomen Trail for the first time in a long time. It was great biking somewhere different. I was able to spend time biking with my nephew and sister and that is also fun. Rough terrain at times but overall a great trip.

Instagram Post: #Biking through life one day at a time. Yesterday was a bad day so today I made sure I went out and played in the sunshine. I had no course planned, instead just went wherever the road took me. It took me 21 miles around town. No frills today just some peddling but it does wonders for the mental health. Until tomorrow #YouVsYou #FightForIt #baddaysbuildbetterdays #OneDayAtATime #FightDontQuit #Hashtag

The Ride: One of those rides that I just didn't feel anything so I just turned ehenever the mood hit. Nothing special today. Bad day.

May 09, 2018

Instagram Post: Mixed it up a bit today and took out the #mountainbike played around on the off-road trails of the #grenlochleasheddogpark & it's surrounding neighborhoods. It was a lot of fun. Good to change up the routine every once in a while. #youvsyou #baddaysbuildbetterdays #fightforit #fitdontquit #biking #hashtag

The Ride: A little off road to cure the blues, but mountain bike tires on the street is a workout all its own. Fun day though

Instagram Post: Back in the 'Bury today for a couple things. A Board of Directors meeting and the senior conGRADulations event. I always look forward to this one because we welcome the recent graduates into the alumni association. It's a laid back celebration and a lot of fun. In between the events I did some walking. Beautiful day (a little hot) but the events got in before the rain. A fun day today. Oh yeah my brick in the garden, haven't looked at this in years. #salisburyuniversity

Instagram Post: It's rained for a week straight. Finally today the sun started creeping out from behind the clouds. I took the bike out for a quick spin. It was so nice to get out and ride today. #biking #cycling #youvsyou #baddaysbuildbetterdays #fightforit

The Ride: Its like starting over. A week of rain finally ended so it was time to move the legs. It took a bit to get used to it again but all good.

Instagram Post: (1) Got the work done, now I can play. After rain 8 of the last 9 days, the grass was in need of a cut and it was a little tough. Now to get cleaned up go for a short ride before the #rideofsilence this evening. (2) Ride #1 tonight was 14.6 miles around #GrenlochLake A nice little warm up before the big event. #biking #cycling #youvsyou #fightforit #fitdontquit #baddaysbuildbetterdays #hashtag (3) Ride #2 tonight was the rescheduled #rideofsilence in #gloucestertownship I biked to the event and home so the entire ride was 14.6 miles. Each year I do this event to honor all those we've lost and bring awareness to "sharing the road". I often think about from friend @robthomas_78 who lost his life while jogging. This ride is about safety, awareness and remembrance. Tonight's ride was for Rob #LLLR #youvsyou #cycling #biking #baddaysbuildbetterdays #fightforit #fitdontquit #rideofsilence

The Ride: The Grenloch ride was business as usual just a warm up. The Ride of Silence was supposed to be 7 miles, it was 10 which was fine. Although the ride does go through town, to much of it is on the trail where people can't see us. That aside, its a great ride, wonderful support from the township and police. Always a privilage to ride this event.

Fun day #cycling #youvsyou #baddaysbuildbetterdays #fitdontquit #fightforit

The Ride: It was tough at times. That Skippack Trail is no joke. Its always an accomplish to finish. Great scenery today. Always nice to mix up the routine.
