I didn't want the 41'ers playing with their junk looking at that picture brew...

I like food too much. I mean, I'm the skinniest I've been since I started cycling. Heck, skinniest in almost 20 years. But I can't get to where my legs are all veiny and stuff.

It's funny since I started cracking down my mid section has softened (limiting ab work), upper body has shrunk tremendously and starting to look like the 'rest of you' again.
I am a crazy vascular person - forearms/biceps are the same and I have garden hoses in my calves. My kids think it's gross but I kinda like it. My wife has dieted to the point that she has veins in her abs which is pretty cool.

I've got veins showing in my abs and back and really good in my arms. Not much on the legs. Just a little around the knees, going up the quads a bit.

Took my car into the dealer for a $400 car wash...Gotta love it!

I'd hate to see what it would cost when there's something actually wrong

I've spent a lot of time in both places. You have great roast beef sandwiches, with oil and vinegar, but I must say that the NOLA attitude is one hell of a lot more fun.

thx for the advice.

Just looked at the Ocala Stage Race flyer. Saturday's RR for Masters 50 is 24 miles. WTF? So the choice is drive to Ocala to do a pittifully short race, or get shelled in the P123.
