Consecutive commute day 261: 38F this morning, but the wind was really blowing hard out of the north (of course, the direction I'm heading.) Was supposed to be raining all day, but it looks like the...

I went for a 4.5 mile run this morning, after skipping yesterday due to a...

While I did ride to work today, I did the exact same thing with running.

It would have been a great day for a run. Decent temp (low 40s) and dry. I got up early and dressed for running, even...

Easy ride this morning. 13F, tail wind, MUP had been plowed and the additional snow they said was possible overnight didn't materialize. Rode the winter bike because there's lots of ice on the...

It all depends where I'm working on a particular day. Today's client is just 4 miles from the house and doesn't have a shower available, so I shower at home before I leave. Normally leaving by 7:30...

13F, a stiff headwind and 6" of fresh unplowed snow. Good day to drive to work, right? Nope.

Today is going to be one of those days where it would have been much easier to drive than ride. However it marks my 250th consecutive bicycle commute, so I wasn't going to let a bit of inconvenience...

Brisk headwind, snow and a thick layer of ice at the bottom made for a challenging commute. But it was still better than driving to work.

Schools are running 2 hours late this morning. I made it...

Pouring rain this morning with a strong head/cross wind.

But I'm not complaining because I'm in South Dakota, it's February and it was 53F!
