Killer Week


Sunday, I flew up to San Fran for Oracle Open World - Oracle's big 35,000 person conference.

In the interest of keeping this blog G rated, let's just say my presentation went very well, and the rest of open world was spent "networking" - and it's safe to say it was an extension of the killer weekend. I also did get a chance to catch up with my friends Moog, Jeff and Garuna too. Here we are throwin down on some thai food at osha:


I got back on Thursday with a major itch to get on it. So, I grabbed my steed, and started heading down the coast with no set plans or anything. 90 minutes later, I had already done 3 repeats up via capri. The first time, I literally thought my eyes were going to bug out of my head. I was kinda spent after that, so I decided its time to head back and get some sleep. I ended up chatting with another cyclist and the next thing I know I am up in carlsbad! So, what I originally wanted to be a "detox" ride, ended up being a 3.5 hour jaunt up and down the coast!

It is good to be back, and now it's time to stop blogging and log some more time in the saddle. Git it!
