Post T-Day 5K

Under cool and cloudy skies, I went for a post Thanksgiving 5K to burn some more calories.

Thursday Thanksgiving 5K

Planning on eating and drinking a lot today, I jogged a 5K around noon. I overdressed as the 60 degrees, no wind and sun made it quite warm. I should have selected running shorts and a tank top. Live and learn, I guess. It did feel good to get outside and feel the sun though. I'll try to get back out over the next three days if the weather holds. I'm hoping to be able to switch from the PD EC Running to the Endurance Boost shoes shortly, although the calorie count today won't help.

Winter prep

With winter coming, it was time to change to the winter tires and rims on the 2006 Cayenne S and thoroughly clean and store the 2004 Bike X and 1998 Bike S. While having a Dunkel of course.

Winter is coming 5K

With temps in the low 50s, I went for early afternoon 5k jog. Low wind and sun made it comfortable to wear shorts and a light jacket. Fun and easy run in the PD EC Running shoes.

I found another Porsche Bike X for sale on the German eBay website. This Bike X is a small or medium frame size, unlike my large size. The asking price is approximately US $2,186.42. Looks like my Bike X may be increasing in value. I read on another Bike X listing that only 250 of these bikes were produced by Storck for Porsche in the early 2000s. These might only increase in value. Although I'm beating mine up pretty good with the long distance endurance riding I'm doing. So, mine probably won't be worth as much.

Here's the listing while it's active. The product description is incorrect though. But it is Porsche Bike X.

Dunkel season

Winter for me is Dunkel season. The dark German bier seems to fit the colder temperatures and cloudy days well. After a bike ride, a couple Dunkels and hanging out in the garage was just right. Prost!

Christmas colors? Too early?

13-mile ride today trying to maximize the remaining ridable days left in 2020. 1998 Porsche Bike S still performing well after the C&O 190-mile pounding.

Quick ride

Quick and short 11-mile ride on the 1998 Porsche Bike S today. Weather peaked at 60-ish degrees so I thought I should go for a spin!

Leaves are gone

After some rain and a lot of wind, the leaves on my running path are gone. Today was another late lunch short and easy jog in the Porsche Design EC Running shoes.

Pre-rain run

After helping a friend change out shocks on a 987 Boxster for nine hours yesterday, I wasn't sure I could muster the energy to go for a jog today. Yesterday wore me out, but good news is now I know how to change the shocks on my Boxster when the time comes. With more rain coming in later today, I knew it was now or never so, I went for an easy and slow four miles this morning in the Porsche Design EC Running shoes.

Porsche wins!

Today couldn’t have gone better for Porsche! 1-2 in WEC and IMSA GTLM PRO and P1 in WEC GTLM PRO-AM and IMSA GTD. All in one day!

Short lunch time jog around the neighborhood through all the leaves that had fallen in yesterday's storm.

RSR practice

Got some practice in with the RSR running my new obscure retro John Paul livery at Road America today. Love this car and track!

*Follow up note: Finished P11 out of a 30+ grid at the Road America practice race last night. Practice pays off.

Autumn Bike X ride

Short lunch time ride around my neighborhood. Third day in a row before the rain comes in for the rest of the week. Today I rode the 2004 Porsche Bike X. Great ride with all the beautiful fall colors.

Another neighborhood 14-miler

14-mile ride around my neighborhood and nearby park on the 1998 Porsche Bike S. Two days in a row. New rear tire tube held up well. I'm trying to maximize the good weather days before they are gone. Which looks like this Wednesday.

Autumn Bike S 15-mile ride


I missed riding the Bike S. I also wanted to replace a slow-leaking tube, so I swapped the rear tube and went for a 15-mile "test" ride around my neighborhood and local park. Another fantastic autumn day with temps in the upper 70s, no wind and colorful leaves. Bike S rode well and 15 miles felt easy. Time for a bier.

Gorgeous autumn 14-mile bike ride

Getting out of the election fog, I rode the 2004 Porsche Bike X for a short neighborhood ride. It was an absolutely gorgeous autumn day with temperatures in the low 70s and no wind. It was an easy and delightful afternoon ride. And icing on the cake was getting a photo of the Bike X with a Cayenne GTS.

Gulf 917 collection grows

My 1:64 scale Porsche 917 collection grew today by one with a new Gulf 917 K #20 from a Walmart Exclusive Car Culture Collector Display Set I picked up this morning. 

Recovery week

Last week was a week to forget. Got a flat tire on the Bike X and crashed the Bike S. And in two consecutive days. This week I’m back on the...
