SATURDAY'S MERCY HEALTH "THE RIDE" GOT ME ALL EXCITED TO GET OUT ON MY TRUSTY STEED...BLACK BETTY. SINCE THE ROADS ARE CLEAR AND DRY, SUNDAY AFTERNOON I GOT ALL BUNDLED UP AND WENT FOR MY FIRST RIDE OF THE SEASON. IT WAS A BALMY 18 DEGREES BUT IT FELT GREAT TO GET OFF THE TRAINER AND OUT INTO THE FRESH AIR FOR A CHANGE.
MANY OF YOU KNOW THAT I'M A GOAL PERSON, SO THIS YEAR I'M GOING FOR A PERSONAL BEST OF AT LEAST 2000. I'LL KEEP YA POSTED ON MY PROGRESS. MAYBE WE CAN FIND SOME WAY THAT WE CAN ALL RIDE TOGETHER SOMETIME.
DON'T FORGET THAT "BIKE TO WORK WEEK" IS MAY 12-16. MORE INFO TO COME.
Thank you so much for stopping by my page for a visit! For those of you new to WMUS, I'll give you a little bit of insight into who Mark Dixon is. For those of you who have been around for some time, you pretty much know everything about me. My life is pretty much an open book.
I've come by my career in broadcasting honestly, having grown up in Kalamazoo as a son of a radio disc jockey. My father was a DJ at WKZO and was the long time "voice" of TV Channel 3 (WKZO, currently WWMT). Years later, my career in radio began in 1978 in the small town of Ottawa, Ohio. From there I had a short stint in Lima, Ohio. Since 1988 my family has called WMUS and West Michigan home.
My interests are bicycling, deer and turkey hunting, bowling, golf, and computers (I've become quite a geek late in life.). I also enjoyed coaching my son in soccer when he went to Fruitport
You probably know that I'm not shy about bragging and talking about my grandkids, Katelyn and Brendan on the air either!
