That’s me. One of the hefty racers.
I close out 2010 at 202.6 pounds.
It’s a sure sign of my training and nutrition deficiencies over the past six months.
If I were register for a triathlon or running race today I would be eligible for the clydesdale division — not exactly the division I want to be in.
At 6-foot-4, 200 pounds is far from being chubby or fat. But as a wannabe competitive triathlete, runner and cyclist it puts me at a pretty significant disadvantage. It’s pretty hard to go uphill at 200 pounds and try to keep the 150 pound dudes within sight.
New Year’s Eve is supposedly the time for resolutions and goal setting. I’m not going to go there this time.
I’ve made a nasty habit of making goals or announcing plans and not following up on them.
Instead, I just want to say I’m not going to look at a 200-plus number for much longer — even though I might actually step on a podium this way.
