It’s been a while since I’ve put anything up on the site, mainly because things have been really busy at work. But it hasn’t been all work and no play. In fact I’ve been playing quite a bit with the camera over the holidays, while down at the coast on multiple weekends. I started out [...]
I wish I could see all of the things my camera can see at night.
This past week, Ann and I went to the old family farm to do lots and lots of manual labor, but hopefully also relax and enjoy the October weather as well. The Antique was originally built in 1746, [...]
Making it to the starting line is a gift. We are so close I can hardly stand it. The bikes are on a truck headed for the mountains of Canada. We’ve packed enough salt tablets to seriously help out with the winter driving conditions in a couple of months. I hope they don’t get confiscated [...]
Nothing says the 4th of July like 1000 cyclists screaming past you on the annual Firecracker ride.
This ride has been held every July 4th since I can remember. It’s great for cyclist of all abilities, and any kind of bike you can imagine. This year I decided to [...]
Sometimes, it’s good to just let the dogs run. We had a really big training week last week, so this week was somewhat of a rest week. Rest weeks are awesome because they’re mostly short, low volume workouts, with just a bit of intensity thrown in. Midway through the week, I decided to sign up [...]
Early Saturday morning, Ann and I drove out towards Pilot Mountain, NC for the 3 Mountain Madness 75 miler. We had scoped out the area last year after we had initially signed up for IMMT in hopes that it would be a good training ride. Having been the second “Mountain” event we’ve done in the [...]
This weekend was a learning experience. I learned that there is a difference between hills and mountains…And that Raleigh has neither hills nor mountains. Ann and I traveled from Raleigh, NC to Ellijay, GA for the Mountain Madness 70.3. We signed up for this this race because we thought it would be a good training [...]
It’s been nearly 3 years since I started Jeff Greene. I just noticed yesterday that I have had 50,076 visitors! Holy moly, that is a lot more than I would have ever imagined. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you found what you were looking for. If not, hopefully you were at least entertained momentarily. [...]
It’s been a while since I’ve been back to my hometown of Matthews, NC. This past Friday I went back for a funeral of a family relative. I’m not usually one to stop and reminisce about the past, but Friday was one of those days. I found myself in a suburb on the outskirts of [...]
We are nearing the end of winter, and I would say, next to October, February is now my second favorite month. The winter weather has been incredible(possibly 80F today?), and has really allowed me to enjoy training. Typically in February it’s cold and rainy or just cold. Every time I see that it’s 60’s or [...]
