I have been visiting a friend in Reno, Nevada for the past few days and at approximately 1:44 am Pacific Time this morning I was jolted awake by a 3.0 earthquake. By most standards it was certainly no major quake but it was enough to wake me up from a sound sleep. I guess I can now scratch "Survive an earthquake" off of my life's to do list.
I took a trip to Lake Tahoe yesterday and found it to be a very beautiful place. I was amazed at the sight of swimmers and kayakers in the lake against the backdrop of snow capped mountains. The only regret that I have is that my girlfriend was not with me to experience it with me.

I took my new road bike out to Stone Mountain this afternoon for a ride. Prior to starting the ride I had grandiose thoughts of being able to make at least two laps around the mountain. That thought evaporated from my mind after the first brutal hill. I was lucky to make it one lap and to be honest, on the last hill I was a little bit pitiful. I kept moving but I was being passed by ants.
To celebrate the lap around the mountain I rewarded myself with more than 3 pounds of buy one get one free boxes of Froot Loops cereal. You gotta celebrate the small victories!
