no point - just shameless self appreciation...

i guess i hadn't really seen myself in a full length mirror in a while. but the other night i was checking myself out and noticed some things that i haven't seen since my high school days: nice legs, defined calves, slight evidence of a six pack, and thin but cut arms. not to mention a nice tan! i hardly recognized myself

yes - i think i'm enjoying my cycling obsession and finally seeing some visible benefits!! anyone out there have a moment of "realization"? be it compliments from other people, or from yourself (as i'm doing )?

Yeah, and it was from an ex-girlfriend who got in shape too. I love that getting in shape is just a byproduct of what I love to do. Peace.

I was shaving my legs a few weeks ago and it dawned on me how far out my quads go. I also noticed that muscle on the back of my knee juts out so much now. And I love how my calves look when I flex them. Sometimes I wish someone would videotape me from behind while I am riding just so I could see my calves working

timmhaan, that's cool man!

I'm still fat, but I'm doing my second century tomorrow, so that's cool. But similar to you, I'm liking my legs.
