New Year’s Resolution

Miscellaneous November 30, 2017

While waiting in line today at the grocery store, the notion that January is just around the corner crossed my mind. I questioned whether or not I would make a resolution for the coming year, and, if so, would I fully commit to following through on that decision?

It seems that, each year, many people experience disappointment in failing to uphold their stated goals. I, too, of course, have shared such moments, though hope that the coming year may be different.

After some thought, I came to a conclusion: starting in 2018, I resolve to give up lettuce.

Bike Riding Ann Arbor

Miscellaneous October 2, 2016

With temperatures warming to 68 degrees fahrenheit, the weather was perfect for a Sunday afternoon bike ride from Ann Arbor to Dexter, Michigan, and back again. With a full bottle of water, sunglasses and a camera, I was on the road and ready to begin the 22 mile trek!

My bike is a 56 cm Cadex-2 by Giant with a carbon fiber frame, 14 speeds and a recently replaced front wheel and tire. Very light, and fast. This 2016 season marks my fifth year biking and my fourth year riding this bike, originally purchased on craigslist.

Below is a map of my bike route (see red line). My starting and finishing point is the same, in Ann Arbor, shown here in the lower-right corner. The intersection of Huron River Drive & Mast Road, in Dexter (upper-left corner), is where I turn around to return.
