Memento Mori

The death rate on the planet is 100% percent. I don’t say that to be morose. Rather, as a vivd reminder that life is our most precious non-renewable resource. And I have every intention of living it to the fullest. Anyone likeminded is welcome to join the ruckus.

One of the coolest parts about covering professional cycling is the close proximity you have with the riders. Filming Mark Cavendish was akin to meeting Michael Jordan for me. And when he took the finish of the last stage, the wake of the peloton chasing him almost pulled me down.

A Peloton of Two

There are times when you know you’re witnessing personal history unfold in front of you. Catching a bike ride for the first time was like that for me. Even then, it was something I knew I’d never forget.

Recently, Gabe and I baptized his new mountain bike on a network of trails in Northern California. I’m truly not sure who was more excited. Watching him come online that way made me feel childish again. The only difference this time was the new place in my heart where the memories from today will live.
