2nd annual tour de In-Laws complete. And now I'm buff.

I completed my ride to my inlaws again. 115 miles with about 3000ft of climbing. It sure seems like a lot more up than that though.

The funny thing is, as I am eating dinner with the mother-in-law, I was telling her I lost 6 lbs over the last 9 hrs. and that she could not possible understand how much I had to eat to maintain my Clydes figure. Sometimes its hard but you can push through the pain and take that extra bite. She started laughing and said while waiting on me to get there she had her nails done and was telling the lady what I was doing and it was my second year doing so. The lady said, "Man, I bet he is really BUFF. I bet he has six pack abs and all." Mom just snickered under her breath and said, "Yep, that pretty much describes him." I am a BUFF 6' and 240lbs. I guess if I didn't like to eat so much I may be a little more buff?

Good job on the century! Almost had the double meteric there!

Man, I never even thought how close I was to the double metric. I will have to do that next year. An extra lap around town should do it.

I'll bet you do have a six-pack, you just can't see it.

I think I'm working on a keg, even though I don't drink anymore.
