Watch How You Use SAG

On a cycle trip, SAG stands for “Support And Gear.” I’ve learned, however, that “SAG team” might have other implications since our team is entirely post-40. So in the interest of personal safety, I’ve adopted the French term soigneurs for our support team. On a cycle racing team, soineurs are responsible for the day-to-day needs of the cyclists–food, clothing, […]

Not So Special After All

Deadlines

…don’t always have to mean dead. Becky and I don’t enforce deadlines very well. We seek excuses to make exceptions whenever possible. Occasionally we ask ourselves where we should draw the line.
