In 2009 I'd been inactive for 8 years, had just turned 30, weighed 240 lbs and had enough. This blog is the journey of starting brand new in the sport of cycling, regaining fitness and aiming to compete in the Elite ranks of Amateur racing.
Current Weight: 180 lbs
Road Cat: 3

Don’t go after big goals, not until you’ve succeed in micro-goals. I say aim for something small, almost unnoticeable to accomplish every day - and do that for 90 days and see the difference it makes.
Just 100 calories less a day in your diet, 2-5 miles more per ride, asleep 15 minutes earlier or awake 15 minutes earlier. Something immensely doable, and that doesn’t make much of a difference over a day will create a HUGE difference over weeks, months, years and your lifetime.”
