Thanks dude... I am. My life has changed 180* in the last 2 years. Its been hard work (lost a total of 77 pounds) but at the same time, tremendously fun. I do't know if you're in the SBCU group on Facebook, but I'd guess you are. I was going to share it there, but didn't know if it'd be frowned upon.

This will come as a surprise but I'm not a big social media fan. Never had Facebook so I'm not familiar with the group or etiquette. It's a fantastic story though and such a great vibe for why we ride in general....and you're on the right brand ;) so I can't see why not?

But again, I'm prob not the best to give a definitive answer. I hope you win though, can't say enough about it.

Thanks... I had a ton of people that gave me inspiration and support along the way and people that inspired me to start this journey... hope that someone can see the video and say, "I can do that too."

First TT race of the year is tomorrow... I'm racing in the Non-TT bike division and got the Venge all set up for raceday. S-Works Cotton Turbos mounted, bottle cages removed, checked/tweaked Garmin mount to make sure it was level and as aero as possible, and cleaned and lubed the drive train.

2 weeks and 3 time trials later. I've gotten 3rd in all 3 time trials, averaging about 25 mph in each of them. I'm currently sitting in 2nd place in the Non-TT division for the overall TT cup.

Had some pretty rad experiences in the last few weeks. About 2 months ago, I won Pactimo's Brand Ambassador Grand Prize trip to Colorado and my top was last week. Here's a link to the full blog post.

After my trip... flew home and had a TT the next morning. Somehow managed to snag 4th on less than 3 hours of sleep, less than a second off the podium.
