1. She was not raised in the USofA. So in her mind, riding a 1-speed bike with a basket dressed in "normal" clothes is the status quo. No costume required.

2. If she rode the MS ride in South Louisiana she would not finish last. Not even close. Lots of overweight sedentary people use the MS ride (and training period leading up to the event) as a good excuse for starting a fitness program. Many SAG in, others tough it out and finish really late.

3. I hope her accomplishments are not viewed as a freak show by non-cyclists. Her act should be a call to arms for all of the dough-boys and dough-girls of America to get (and stay) moving. Be nice if the media put THAT spin on it.

4. I would be ashamed to ask for her autograph. She is way tougher than I am.
