Flattering, but I'm not all that. I did a lot of weights when I was younger. Doesn't help I come from big stock to begin with. But I'm old now. I try to stay as fit as I can, but my free weight...

Ya, a lot of times, I focus on the lines too. My biggest concern is hitting rocks big enough to puncture tires. I've wondered if anybody made something like a reverse periscope, something where I can...

I think I had an old bike back in the 80s that had some of those on the pedals. Frankly, I would be more willing to try those, at least for starters than investing in dedicated bike shoes. Cheap...

Interesting about Mondo. First I've heard of it. I'm a little sketchy about ordering shoes online though. I have fairly large feet, size 10 (US) in women's. Everything I see says that's suppose...

Oh, I've walked too. Actually, I think this was the first tri where I didn't walk at some point during the run. There were a few places, mostly up a mild incline, where it was more of a shuffle,...

OK, maybe I was confusing your question about the bag and my belt. I thought you were referring to the belt I was wearing. The saddle bag has a CO2 inflator and a couple cartridges, spare tube,...

Sweet baby Jesus! I checked out the link and the "best value" shoes start around $250. :twitchy: I have bikes I didn't pay that much for.

I'll have to check into Las Vegas Tri, but the problem is I don't actually live in Vegas anymore. I'm still close, about 50 miles away, so I do drive in from time to time. But it's not like it's...

Maybe, but that's a pretty tight shirt. About as tight as I care to shove my chubby a$$ into.

Power, I have. One thing is pretty evident, I'm no stick. But the flip side of that is I'm about as aerodynamic as a brick. If the speed is about equipment, then $$$ is my limiting factor. I'm...

Thanks guys. I don't have a lot of spacers on this stem. Maybe what I'll do is swap what I have above, and when I run out of those I can flip the stem. It's got 6* (I think) of angle. So maybe go...

Similar story here. I was strongest in my 20s, while I was in the military. Did a lot of physical stuff outside of organized PT. Ran and rode a lot, especially in Okinawa. When I got out, my goal...

Ya, 1:09 is boogeying. My overall time was about 1:45. But a 23mph pace, even for such a short course, is flat flying. Oh, how I wish I could be 27 again.

It makes me happy that my meager post can be inspiring. I also find activity to be therapeutic. Sorry to hear about grandmother. I lost both of mine back in the 80s.

Just as a point of reference, this is the bike I use for triathlons. It's a 49cm Specialized Roubiax. Someone is probably going to ask what year but I have no idea. I bought it used. Best guess,...

I was in the Marine Corps. They pretty much beat all the quit out of me. I'll check out that thread. Sounds like an OT kind of thing.

Ya, I can handle good-natured ribbing. I'm not new to the internet. But that was just unnecessary malice.

Is Addiction another section? I'll look around.

Not sure what you mean with stack and drop. My kick is absolutely worthless. One reason why I don't do it. But it's probably more form than anything. I do work on hydration and carb loading the...

I don't know about that. The goal of 20mph pace is kind of an arbitrary figure. I just used it because it was a round number. I'm working within the factors of age, strength and build. I'm not...
