Ok, time to take the plunge. Ive been trolling for a few weeks and have decided to introduce myself. I am 30 years old, 62 and weighed 275 at the peak of the summer. Enough is enough determination has me currently fluxing around 260 (damn Thanksgiving). To help me get determined about losing weight, I signed up for the MS150 thinking the training work alone should get me back to healthy with an end goal of the 220s.
Stage two of my plan happened this week as I got off my comfort bike from the LBS and purchased a road bike off CL (2006 Trek 1200 with stock pic below).
Now I just need to find the time to ride. I have two children under two years old, so road time is a tight squeeze. Good news is my wife is highly supportive, but I find that riding takes time away from my kids so I am stuck and my kids will always win. Any suggestions or stories of balancing would be greatly appreciated.
That is it for now, but I appreciate knowing I am not the only one out there. Although it is a little mind blowing to think that I can be capable of riding 100 miles in one day.
PS I love the Clyde themed Jersey by JonnyHK. If there were a tall version, I am definitely in for one. God blessed me with the legs of a 511 man and a torso of a 64 one.
