A principle is something that you can see — as a moral right and wrong — and feel a responsibility (not an opportunity) to change.

Usually acting on principle is a social behaviour, but it exists in software too.

Bret is the person who most inspires me right now.

Successful 30km on longboard today! Lot of wind made it more challenging than usual, but it was an enjoyable ride. A biker asked it was electric 😂

this just might be the coolest thing i have seen in my entire life

Did a very good training session for the race next month. Practiced both leg pushing motions on a uphill slope. Getting more powerful pushes and better balance on my weaker leg! 🛹 to that I also add non skate endurance training (running and biking), and core muscle renforcement exercises
