My Recumbent Bike Gear

By kate on June 10th, 2014

I’ve been a recumbent biker for a year and a half, and I’m hooked. The comfort of sitting on a “bent” bikeis immediately obvious, but it took hundreds of miles of riding before the very different center of balance felt like second nature. Last year, I completed the 200-mileSTP on my bike, nicknamed The Armchair, […]

The pregnancy continues to progress. Here are some notable developments lately: I’ve become clumsy. I guess this is a magnification of the usual PMS/hormone-related reduction of spatial capabilities (aka hand/eye coordination). It’s annoying to keep dropping things, and to know this may not go away for months to come. So, don’t let me use any […]

This is an interesting website, about the idea of rankism. More basic than racism or homophobia, rankism is seeing yourself as above another person, and acting accordingly. On another topic, here are a couple of photos of me taken during the Fremont 5K that I think are pretty good.

By kate on June 21st, 2004

A lot of running

By kate on June 1st, 2004

This Saturday, Steve and I did the North Seattle Street Scramble. It’s one of those races where you need to get to checkpoints and then back to the finish in a given amount of time. The twist in the Street Scramble is that there are more checkpoints than you could possibly get to, so each […]

Team name idea

By kate on April 16th, 2004

Last night, while playing soccer, I came up with a good idea for a team name: 9/10 (or you could write it out: Nine-Tenths). Why? From the saying, “Possession is nine-tenths of the law.” A good thing to keep in mind during a game where possession is so important.

How’s my eye?

By kate on February 21st, 2004

If you weren’t there and don’t know about it already, I got hit in the face with a soccer ball last night at our game. It was a hard kick straight from an opponent’s foot into my right eye. I was helped off the field and spent the last 15 minutes of the game in […]
