Silence

Do people still blog?

Why did I create my original blog?

These are some of the questions which cross my mind as I sit here at my workstation. It's been a long time since my last update and the Facebook application has taken over as the best place to post your thoughts and random updates. The Facebook application has been quite entertaining and I find myself posting random things as well and about 80-90% is bullshit. Anyway, I would be a hypocrite if I posted bad things about Facebook - it's fun to read about peoples lives while sitting on the toilet in the basement level bathroom at work. This might be too much information for some of my readers (if any exist), but the visit to the bathroom in basement has become a daily ritual. Some of my best ideas were born in the bathroom downstairs and there is something about the temperature and silence which keeps me coming back each day. Enough about the basement bathroom - on to the meat and potatoes of this entry.

The past 8 months have been a lesson in life and love. There has been a great deal of sacrifice in my personal and professional life and bike racing was put on hold during this time. My miles dipped into the reserve tank and my cyclocross season was obsolete. But through all this I learned about my partner (Zsofia) and how the bike is really just a bike.

Anyway, back to my original questions.

Do people still blog?

Yes and it takes a hell of a lot more time without the "status update" button

and

Why did I create this blog?

To look back on who I was and where I'm going.
