  1. Well stated John.

  2. Thanks for the photos and writeup. We'll miss you Paul!

  3. Paul was not motivated to ride out of selfish pride or vanity. He rode because he wanted to live. About 4-5 years ago I recall a conversation during a training ride for one of his Leadville MTB 100s: his father had passed away from a heart disease in his early 50s. Paul felt he was headed the same way thanks to strong common genes. Thru cycling Paul evidently lost considerable weight , felt he was in the best shape of his life ,and had already lived longer than his Dad.
    Despite a spring heart attack that year he still was able to race Leadville in August with his Drs blessing. Unlike most of us, he never took his health for granted. He counted his blessings and was not hesitant to discuss spiritual matters. Even earlier this year just months after his diagnosis when many would be trying to fight the reality of a terminal diagnosis he instead had already taken care of all his earthly affairs so he could just enjoy living what days God had already counted to him. It was a privilege to know him. He finished strong!

  4. I didn't know Paul well but enjoyed him when we did meet. Makes me realize we aren't guaranteed how long our time on earth is going to be. Condolences to the family.

  5. Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”.
