Pic of the Year
December 31, 2017

Before my 2017 Olympic Triathlon in Tahoe a took this picture of the lake (facing east). I liked the picture enough to have it made into a 24" x 36" in my home. Probably my best picture of the year.

Allergy Shots

Here I am after allergy shots to the arm. I've been going 2 days a week for the past 7 weeks, but the frequency lessons to 1 day per week in January, and then just once a month in March, for the next 3-5 years.

Tree Trimming
September 24, 2017

Heres I am on top of the roof of my house, doing my annual cut-back of leaves from a tree that overhang part of my house on the back side of my house. It usually fills a few cans-worth of material.

Santa Cruz Half
September 9, 2017

I competed in the Santa Cruz Half Ironman triathlon today. Tiring! I finished and my bike time was awesome, but my run was rough. Knee issues! This gives me motivation to train harder and smarter for next year hopefully. Swimming in the ocean wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

That Was Close
September 5, 2017

Got back to my car after work today to find a tree branch fell and almost hit my car. I could have very easily parked in harms way. There is actually a car un the branch with a broken windshield. I would have been pretty pissed if this was my car because I had to have my windshield replaced just a couple months before.

September 1, 2017

I went to my first and only RiverCats game tonight. I went with the ASCE YMF group. It was one of the last games of the season. Good people.

Garage Door Repair
August 27, 2017

My garage door broke, but I had a repair man come and fix it without too much of an issue. One replaceable part was worn out is all.

Tahoe Tri
August 27, 2017

This was a really fun triathlon. The water was warm and my bike time was better than the previous year. Overall my time was a little better than the previous year. This is probably my favorite landscape picture of the year, the sunrise from the west shore of Tahoe a little before the traithlon began.

Thunder Cover

This cover band was really good. And it was a free concert. I went with a meetup group from the area for people 25-35 looking to get out and do stuff. This took place at the Palladio shopping in east Folsom.

Solar Eclipse
August 21, 2017

Solar eclipse today. I thought my regular sunglasses would work haha. Some pretty neat contractions to show the eclipse from shadows. I was at work at the time because it was late morning, but there was a ton of people outside looking up with the funny glasses on. Meanwhile I was looking cool with normal sunglasses on and burning out my eyes.

Lassen
August 20, 2017

Perhaps my favorite picture of 2017 is this. I'm at the top of Mount Lassen during a hike while camping for the weekend with a group of engineers and nature people. Huge props to my pal Jimmy for taking this pic. Glad I could make it all the way up. Despite being August there was still some snow near the top.

Folsom Tri
August 6, 2017

I participated in the Folsom Olympic triathlon this morning. My parents came and watched. Great venue and I really like this. The bike course was flat and I almost averaged 20mph. Next year! I have to consider this my home course.

New Side Fence
March 26, 2017

I had a new fence installed along the side of my house. It was probably the privit plant on my side of the fence that caused the problem. Nice to share the expense with a neighbor who was also pro-active and good about commnication. Below is a picture of during the construction and after the construction.

Golden 1 Arena
March 25, 2017

I finally found an excuse to check out the New Golden 1 Center in downtown Sacramento. I went to the boys High School Championship Basketball Game. There were a bunch of different games because there are different division and such. The picture below is actually the end of a girls game when the winning team was celebrating.

Marina Round Table

I left town for a week to escape my allergies and instead of providing a beautiful sunset view of the Pacific Ocean, I provide you with a picture of the Marina Round Table, which is beautiful in its own way.

Night Boarding
January 7, 2017

I never heard about night boarding until a few days ago. And tonight I went to my first night boarding at Boreal. The lift ticket was $45 to go boarding from 3pm to 9pm. It worked out well. I carpooled with my roommate and one of her friends. I got in a half day of work in the mroning and we didn't have any traffic getting up there or back.
