The other day, Ginny and I were riding in Busse Woods.
Busse Woods has 3 major trails … and they have color coded arrows to indicate which way the trails go.
Ginny asked me how she would know what turn to take when she came to a trail intersection … so I came up with the following poem…

Don’t take black, you’ll just have to turn back.
Just take red and you can go straight ahead.

During the 2013 Tour de Cure ride, my friend Marty was active on various social media sites … he frequently used the phrase “Not dead yet”.
As it happened, I recently finished a book that was recommended to me by a fellow type 2 diabetic. It was “Not Dead Yet: My Race Against Disease: From Diagnosis to Dominance” by Phil Southerland.
When Phil was a child, he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. His mother was told that he would either be dead or blind by the time he was 25. Despite this prediction, he went on to be a world class professional cycle racer and founded a professional cycle racing team: Team Type 1 (now Team Novo Nordisk).
I found the book to be very good and quite enlightening … on multiple levels.
