I went from 178 to about 163 at one point this year after picking up cycling in Feb. (although I gained most of that back after moving back to Cali from TX 3 months ago...)

I also rode my first MS150 in Dallas in May after picking up my first road bike in Feb.

I completed the Hotter-n-Hell 100, my first century, this year.

Gained a huge appreciation for the sport of cycling after training for those two events above.

Learned de-hydration and cramps really suck while 2/3rd's of the way on a metric century!

Learned that sheer determination will get you through a ride even though you are cramping and dehydrated.

Also came up with my mantra of "I will not be beat" when approaching that last big @ss hill/bridge before the end of the MS150 ride to Ft. Worth.
