Post-mortem: NYC Marathon Ride – November 5

This past Sunday I woke up to an alarm at 5:15 AM, with maybe two hours of sleep under my belt. The early rise was necessary in tackling what has become my favorite ride in New York City! I worked the door of a friend’s bar in Carroll Gardens the night before, checking IDs. The... Continue Reading →

23rd Annual Tour de Bronx

Here it is, Monday morning and I am sore. The good kind of sore. Feels like I worked hard over the weekend, something a good stretch will address.
