    When you're knocking off centuries in just over six hours... and aiming for those times in the five hour range... on a mountain bike...

    WHO CARES?!

    To be fair its a fast rolling mtb and I think it would fair badly on an actual mountain. Still that six seconds today irritated me. I really wanted an under 6 hour finish. Maybe I should have run over a few poodles...

    I learned a long time ago that the only people who think you're too thin are the ones who are used to seeing you fat. Someone who never knew the bigger you would think you look normal now.

    Are you strong and healthy? If so, forget about the nay sayers. Everybody has their own idea of what the ideal body should look like. Too thin only exists when you are eating at such a caloric deficit that your body is consuming its own lean tissue. There is a big difference between being very lean and fit (healthy thin) and being anorexic (sickly thin).

    I can't stop eating. I ride so much if I stop eating I run out of energy. My wife complains I eat too much now, but then I remind her that I'm providing my own gasoline to get everywhere and she has to put that into the equation for a fair comparison.

    Welcome to the club.

    Most asked question for me---have you been sick?

    Yeah, I got the "are you ok" comments. Now people are used to me the way I am and I am no longer too thin or too fat, but just right.

    You should have heard the comments when I lost from 200 lbs down to 150 lbs in 10 weeks. Now that I have been 150 for about 6 months everyone's perspective of me has changed and they see my new weight as normal.
