C.R.E.A.M. (A Man with Plans and a Dream)


Just me and my bicycle

I had a little bit of inspiration today. My buddy Mark (at around 3:30am) adapted the lyrics of C.R.E.A.M. by Wu Tang Clan for me. It was both hilarious and touching to wake up to the message. The message from Mark got me out on my feet and on my bike. I rode my bike up the Redlands, CA classic route ‘Sunset Loop’. It’s just about 12.5 miles, but lots of hills. I usually hit it as hard as I can, so I’ve been avoiding it lately because I was unsure if I could keep my BPM under 150. I did it, with the exception of one big spike, which I hope was a glitch because it came out of nowhere. I’m getting much better at focusing on my breathing. I usually average 15-17 mph on this ride, but today did it in 12.5 mph. It’s all about getting on the bike and riding right now, not how fast it is done. Thanks Mark, and Thanks to everyone else in my life who have been so supportive and inspiring.

Adapted C.R.E.A.M. lyrics by Mark:

Cash rules everything around me
C.R.E.A.M get the money
Dollar, dollar bill y’all

It’s been thirty some long hard years of still struggling
Survival got Tony bugging, but he’s alive on arrival
Tony grew up with a coronary crime side
The aint got much time side and you aint heard half of it yet
Tonys got bulging arteries, and crunked up valves
Stayin alive was no jive
Times for Tony was ruff and tough like leather
Doc figured out Tony’s blood went the wrong route
So Tony went callin up this one, meeting with that one
So then Tony hooked up with sick ass plan and went all out
Under the knife to install a kick ass robo-valve

They say that writing blogs can help you maintain to overcome all the heartaches and pain
Leave it up to Tony to be living proof
To kick the truth to the hip blogisphere
And stay awake to the ways of the world cause shit is deep
But shorty’s running wild,learning science, drinking juice
And ain’t trying to hear what Tonys kicking in their ear
Neglected for now but yo, it gots to be accepted
That what, that life is hectic
