BF is a part of your cycling life when...

I just changed into gear to go ride the rollers, and of course I have to stop by the computer one more time to click "View New Posts".

That's right, I'm sitting here in bibs reading BF. What's wrong with me?

Same thing that's wrong with me:

ob·ses·sion (ahhb-se-shun)

NOUN:

1. "Compulsive preoccupation with a fixed idea or an unwanted feeling or emotion, often accompanied by symptoms of anxiety." (Check)
2. "A compulsive, often unreasonable idea or emotion." (Yep)
