Kick Ay-ASS ride. Current mood: determined

The ride that took me 100

Okay so today, i was going to leave at 6:30 for my 100 mile ride but couldn't because my ipeeeed wasn't charged so i had to charge it for 20 minutes. I was worried that it would last the ride, but lo and behold it got me all the way to bonsall and back and crapped out just before arriving at the bottom of grape.

So the ride was kick ass. I managed to maintain almost 17 mph the whole ride. I was actually at 21-24 on the flats and lost some on the hills. On the way down the 76 it started getting scary because there is no bike lane so i really had to hold my line and concentrate.
I sent out the vibe to the universe that I was going to do 100 miles and i did just that. The old Chad would have said that he could never do that...but the new chad knows better. The new Chad can do anything. I am actually listening to Frou Frou right now on the garden state soundtrack. I love that song.

I stopped at Java Depot and met Marc with SDBC. I am going to be riding with them this year. I signed up to race as a cat 4/5 rider. Marc is cool he is from South Africa and just got back from Australia. He is in charge of the cat 4/5 riders. I got a cup of coffee and a bagel. He invited me to sit with him. He talked about his adventures in Aussie Land. Noah would love this guy. Had to leave within 25 minutes because I didn't want my muscles to get cold.

Life is great and gets better everyday. The best part about life is that now I have a purpose...something I never felt I had. I really feel that my friend Chelsea saved my life by sending that video to me. I am great and life is great and it just keeps getting better.
So the white line thing really worked today. My legs are spent right now. I am still warm from the ride. I think I have burned 7300 calories today. Good job yay me.

At 5 I went to fashion valley and spent some time with my friend Colleen. She works at the Apple store. We chatted over a starbucks and then she had to part because she has to get food for her cats...get this...Calvin and Hobbes. What great names for cats.
Okay...I am out. I need sleep...body tired and legs must rest. Neck was the only thing that hurt a little bit today. Heating pad tonight.
Out til next time.
Currently listening : Garden State By Various Artists Release date: By 10 August, 2004

Feels like a throat punch to my heart

So, I thought today was going to be just another Sunday of lounging around and netflixing.  I don't think I have ever been so wrong in my life.  To start with, Facebook reminded me of my memories.  I happened to click on a friends link and decided to follow another link to my very first girlfriends sisters page.  Its random how I got there, but I blame facebook.

To my shock, I saw that her sister had passed on the 22nd of November.  I was shocked because I knew that she wasn't that old.  I reached out to an old mutual acquaintance and found out it was pretty sudden and unexpected.  That had me in some kinda mood.  Because of that, I began to text and email friends and check in and make sure then were okay.

I got a text message from a close colleague I used to work with at a previous job.

Beck: "whats shakin CB"
Me: "Not much just wanted to say hello.  Had a wake up call today.  Found out first girlfriends sister just passed away.  So sad...she was young"

Screw back up plans

Yes I said it.  Yes I have had quite a few unsuccessful ventures and I have recently started reading blogs that suggest backup plans.  I don't agree and I will tell you why.

When you have a back up plan you have an "oh shit that didn't work and I have to do something about it". Its like whatever it is going on in your life is going to fail or stop being at some point. Newsflash: You are correct!  NOTHING lasts forever. Your job, your marriage, your income stream, your family and most certainly not your startup or your job.  For those of you wishing to go back to the old days, its not going to happen.  The age of chivalry is dying and the startup that you create will be dead within 10-15 years.  We don't live in our parents or grandparents economy. Hell the way we communicate is changing. See example below and try and decipher what I am saying to you


Did you figure it out yet.  If so, please pat yourself …

Just a friendly update on me :-)

Hey everyone

Just wanted to give an update. You may remember that I said I was going to be coming back to California, well it is official.  I am heading down May 1. I will most likely take the train and stop in Napa to visit my cousin Stephen Bordes at his winery for a day or two.  From there, I will catch a train to San diego.

I am currently looking for work and open to any positions that may be available, I just ask that you don't hold it against me because I have a masters degree.  I have seen many companies shy away from hiring me because I have a Masters Degree.  I am honestly looking to get off my feet and find a base of operation. My home is California and I know that now.  I am native and the air, soil and water are in my bones.

I am looking to establish which means I will need to find a place to live (that I pay for monthly), maybe even get a car (down the road) for now I know that I will have to use the bus and I am okay with that. I am nervous as hell about this move …
