    Just broke 1000 miles

    I know it isn't much compared to some, but I just broke 1000 miles this year. I just got back into cycling in April (after 8 years off) when I weighed 215. I now weigh about 195. I will be riding in the Hotter N Hell pulling my 3 year old son in a trailer next weekend. I didn't think losing this much weight would have been so much fun!!!

    Congrats, bdiamond!! Great work... I just hit 1000 this weekend also - one of my milestones. My other milestone was 220 lbs which I hit last week (down from 250).

    You're not going to do the 100 at the HH100 are you? That would be a workout if it gets hot.

    Have you been before? It's a great experioence.

    Good job!
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.
