Fun Fact Friday (Sort of…)

This week I was looking for a Fun Fact that had to do with Daddy/Daughters, as this weekend while the wife is out of town we will have a great Daddy Daughter weekend.  I was unable to find a fun fact, but did find this article.

In the article above, there are 29 points and here is my top favorite that I agree with. Most are  that will happen into the future and I can’t wait to do all of them.

2. He taught you how to ride your first bike.
6. Dad gave you kisses on your chubby cheeks because he couldn’t resist your cuteness.
7. And comforted you when you had trouble falling asleep.
11. Or dressing up in Marvel costumes.
23. He picked you up during the father-daughter dance at weddings.

It made me realize all the great times I have had with Stella over the past year and can’t wait for many many more!

Throwback Thursday

image

This year, I was excited when I saw who the Dolphins were playing. I was thinking, Hey looks like we will be in St Louis again to play the Rams. I was thinking my buddy Jordan would have to go to STL again. NOPE! The damn Rams had to make this the year to move back to LA. Oh well, the above photo of Jordan and I at our first NFL game. Dolphins won 16-12. This was back in 2008. It was a great game, we had lots of fans both Miami and St Louis digging the Braveheart Face paint style.

Go Fins!!!

Dog Park

It’s been a LONG time since the Boys and I went to the Dog Park. Decided to surprise them today with a Sunday Morning trip. As I got them loaded in the van, aka Big Betsy, this is what they looked like.

Ready to leave without me, luckily I still had the keys. As we were waiting to back out, this is where the boys decided to sit. Murphy right behind me, and Harley all the way back in the third row.

Work Out Wedneaday

Well I have got my registration all set and ready to go for the Pigman Sprint Triathlon. This will be number 4.

Here is the past three years times.
2013 my first year

2014- Year 2 shaved off 5 minutes

Last Year, still a better time, but could have done better.

This year I have made it a goal of doing a lot more swimming, minimum of twice a week. So far its been good, need to get better at breathing during the swim, but its a work on progress. My other goal is to get the end 5k run down the 24-25 minutes that I usually do when I just run 5ks. Also I need to get the transition between swim and bike faster, so will be practicing that come spring.

This is a great first time Triathlon for anyone to TRI!

Fun Fact Friday (Space)

Growing up I was always a big fan on the unknown, space, planets….Aliens! Now not many people might have a favorite planet, but I do, it’s Jupiter.

image

I was looking up a fun fact for today, so here’s the fact:

“Juno is a NASA New Frontiers mission to the planet Jupiter. Juno was launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on August 5, 2011 and will arrive on July 4, 2016.”

image

This year we will be unlocking the mysteries of a much much bigger and far away planet. This is exciting to see what kind of information they will get from data.

If in the future there is an option for me to go into space, I will take that opportunity. To see our world from the view of space would be just fricken sweet. I always said, if I knew when I was going to die I would ask to be placed in a space shuttle and sent to space. Once I got to space I would want some high power jetpack, exit the space craft and just float my way to another planet or further into space. Yes I’d probaly die before I got even close to another planet, BUT you just never know there could be an Alien life form that finds me and brings me back to life.

So I’ll be tuning in July 4th to see if the Juno mission makes it to Jupiter. Good Luck!

Throwback Thursday (RAGBRAI 06)

image

This is me, pre Bad Bobby, this was my second year of doing RAGBRAI. I did a day in 2004, but I don’t have a photo from that. This was from 2006, I did the last day from Coralville to Muscatine. I don’t remember the mileage. I do remember it was HOT. This was the day I knew I was doing something I love and plan to do until I die. This photo shows the inexperienced rider, heavy shorts, tennis shoes with socks, old mountain bike. It was a great time, throughout the past 11 years I have been on a few different teams, met some new people, made new friends and overall have a blast every year the last week of July hits. RAGBRAI is the birthplace of BAD BOBBY, and he’s a fun guy to party with. Each year I say it was the best year, but overall all the years are a great year. Each year of the BRAI there is something new, new nicknames, new people, new roads and overall that one town where you just don’t remember as it was that much fun. Throughout the years I have upgraded my bike to my beloved Black Betty, 2008 Lemond Tournalet. It was nice going from a mountain bike that was heavy to a nice riding road bike. A week from Saturday we find out this year’s route and I cannot wait!

Below is one of my favorite RAGBRAI photos of me, man how I have changed in the last 10 years. This jsut shows the fun and good time I have!

Ride On!
