Editing Videos

Editing video at a studio means that I will have plenty of down time. I'm not editing nor directing, simply being the account person means that I get to play voice-of-reason since our deadline is the end of the week.

It also give me time to update my blog! :)

Molly and I went to D.C. and did the touristy thing. We hadn't been there in over a decade and wanted to see and appreciate all of the sites. We had an incredible time and found some great places to eat! I found a place that had a crab stuffed soft pretzel which was rich and amazing! We hit up all of the monuments and most of the Smithsonians, my favorite was the WWII memorial, it was amazing and thought provoking.

Here we are in front of the White House

We also found this amazing cupcake place! The cupcakes didn't make it back to the hotel! :)

Work has been busy! Product launches out the ying-yang and I had some additional Goodyear accounts added to my watch due to people leaving the company. One of my more recent projects was helping Goodyear develop a United Way donation goal tracker for their campaign. The lady in charge is the Director of Blimp Operations, so needless to say I got a VIP tour of the Goodyear Blimp Hangar in Akron, OH!

Riding and racing!
I've been riding as much as I can fit in! I surpassed 2,000 miles and I think I've over 2,200 to-date! I've been trying to get out on the MTB more but with the days getting shorter the road bike seems to be a quick alternative before the sun goes down.

I raced The Big Valley Race at Camp Manatoc and finished 10th out of 20 in my Sport age group. Way better than my 13th/last place finish last year! I also cut 43 minutes off of my two laps with an added mile this year on the second lap!

I plan on trying to do a few more races before the end of the season and maybe get some night riding started with the days ending earlier. Maybe next year I'll hit up some more endurance races and maybe my first 12-hour race!

Everything else is gravy these days! My blood sugars are under control with my most recent A1C of 6.8. My brother and family are healthy and happy and Molly is as amazing of a girlfriend as she has ever been!

Happy Monday everyone!!!
