The Week That Was – 10/28/12

I’ll try to keep this concise. Hurricane/Tropical storm Sandy has been pretty devastating up and down the east coast, and although Philly was fairly fortunate in the limited damage it took, it is pretty horrifying to see pictures of the shore and parts of NYC. My prayers go out to friends that have seen their lives be put on hold while they deal with the aftermath.

The Time Someone Threatened to Sue me for Selling my Boat

What follows below is a recap of an event that happened to me a month or so ago: I decided to sell my boat, had one guy offer to buy it, took a high offer, and then had to deal with guy number 1 being quite upset that there was a higher bidder.

Bassman Half Race Recap – 10/07/12


Finish Line

Well, this was interesting.

After Timberman, as I was scheduling the remainder of my season, I had marked Bassman as a “B” race, and Miami Man an “A” race. However, as I was going through my training leading up to Bassman, I could feel my body getting hit with a wave of exhaustion, so backing off ultimately led to a taper for Bassman. That’s fine, I’ll go balls out anyway, and we’ll see who’s left standing at the end of the day.
