650 Miles! --A Blog of a 24-hr HPV Record Ride
July 20, 2006

Greg Kolodziejzyk is a busy guy. He does ultramarathons and plays the stock market via some freaky new virtual future predicting method that I of course understand not at all. For the past year he's been dialing in a streamliner to make an attempt to break the world 24-Hour Record of 635 miles. Check out his site as he makes his countdown toward his record attempt. The vehicle looks totally sweet and he seems like a fit and focused person. What will the next record look like? Check the "http://adventuresofgreg.com" to find out!

Oh, and he's also a motivational speaker. Actually, that's his goal beyond his goals! He does his adventures to have something to talk about. Seems a bit backward to me, but actually his goal beyond his goal (beyond his goal) is to inspire people to get more out of their lives. He's into Uplift. He wants to provoke it via speaking. He does the adventures to have a story. Whew! People are liking his talks. I bet he's good! Check out his speech site: www.human-power.com

UPDATE! On 7/20 Greg set a new world record of 650 miles for 24 hours. An average of 27 mph! He had quite an amazing support and design team behind this effort. Good job! His site is a neat place to see the wind-up to a big event.

UPDATE: Greg smashed the record with a ride of 650+ miles!

He hasn't updated his main website yet, but here's a link to a bunch of photos. There are also nifty videos online at: http://www.youtube.com/user/criticalpower.
