The 2022 #TridgeToBridge240

What started as a #StupidIdea a little more than 4 years ago has turned into one of my favorite parts of the summer. Over the next four to five(?) days this group of regular people will make their way, un-crewed and un-aided, a little over 240 miles from Midland to Mackinaw City. The 3rd annual…

The Profile Picture

Five years ago when I created the Facebook Page, I made this my profile picture. It was taken by Bernie Eng during my very first Stupid Idea – the #RunToBayshore in 2016. Since that time I’ve set out on many more adventures, and posted all sorts of pictures, but through it all I’ve kept this…

The Virginia Quintuple Anvil

Back in May I sent these papers off in the mail to Virginia. This morning, almost five months later, it’s time for me to head there as well. Beginning at 7am Monday morning, I’ll be competing in the Virginia Quintuple Anvil Triathlon. 5x the distance of an Ironman, I should (hopefully) finish some time on…

2021 Marji Gesick

Two years ago I attempted this race. Over 100 miles of rugged trails in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula….. and I failed to complete it. I’m not as prepared or ready as I’d hoped to be, but this weekend I’ll try again. There’s a 28 hour cutoff to receive a finisher’s buckle this year, and a pretty…

#RideSouth

Waynesville, North Carolina. A small mountain town west of Asheville in the heart of the Great Smokies. As a kid we made countless trips down there to visit family. I can remember spending the entire day with my legs stuck to a vinyl seat; windows rolled all the way down, but providing no relief from…

The Lighthouse 100 Mile

Five years ago I heard about a brand new race called the Lighthouse 100 Mile Run. With a point-to-point course covering 100 miles of northern Michigan roads between Mission Point and Petoskey, it promised to be one of the most beautiful road ultras in the country. I was lucky enough to not only be able…

The 2021 #TridgeToBridge240

The plan last year was a one time event. But I’d be lying if I told you it was anything less than an incredible experience. Now, here we are not quite a year later, and I can’t think of a better way to kick off the summer of 2021 than an epic adventure up north…

New Year….. New Website!

2020 certainly was quite a year. While I’m sad that so many of our events had to be canceled or postponed, it allowed me the opportunity to take on some challenges of a different sort. I’ve always loved technology, and all this extra time indoors has given me a chance to try and learn some…
