Not too well actually. I think, mentally, PBP was my 'Everest' and having achieved it I took my foot of the gas at the very same time that I took up a new hobby (flight sims and computer graphics) that was quite enjoyable but way too sedentary. The weight piled on and, quite simply, I stopped riding my bike. Not long after, the recession kicked in and trying to hang on to my job and putting our daughter through university took priority.
