March 21, 2012

The ultimate test of athlete and machine!

I’ve enjoyed checking-in on FreeMotion’s endurance, treadmill-based, relay “challenges” at the past few IHRSA Shows.  In 2010 the competitors climbed/ran the vertical equivalent of Mt. Everest–29,000+ feet.  Last year the challenge was a rugged 100 kilometer (62.1 miles) segment of a popular mountain stage of the Tour De France.  [...]

Ball Bike Makes IHRSA Show Debut.

March 19, 2012

Recumbent-style cycling with a twist!

Ball Bike has upped the ante on recumbent cycling.  Lay-back “sit-cycling” must now take a back seat to the new kid on the block–the Ball Bike.  Oops…Ball Bike doesn’t even have a seat; you sit on a stability ball!  Then again, how much stability is there on a semi-bouncy ball?  That’s [...]

Happy Birthday – By the Numbers!

February 3, 2012

We have a cousin—for the sake of this post, we’ll call him “Max.”  Today is Max’s birthday—Happy Birthday Max!!

That [...]

Dr. Bruce Says…Drivers! Wake Up and Wise Up! Thank you.

October 4, 2011

Based on the fact that I had THREE “close encounters of the automobile-runner kind” yesterday morning–during a 10 minute period, I am now in favor of putting up more of these signs on the roads of America!
There I was minding my own business running, in the crosswalks, across intersections with the light in my favor [...]

One Third of a Century–The Streak Runs On!

September 15, 2011

My consecutive day running streak passed one third of a century on Thursday, September 14, 2011.  That’s 33 years, 122 days.
Something about that “number” has been quite intriguing to me.  One third of a century sounds powerful and long.  One third of a century is more digestible than 12,175 days, or 1,051,920,000 seconds; although passing [...]
