Checking In

Hey all, I've been awol from PA for some time.
Frankly got burned out on racing, also politics.
Then I started into weight loss, nutrition, diet, exercise, and well I've changed a lot in the past two years as you can see below.
I'm an avid runner now and have lost close to 190 pounds from my peak.
Back to a weight I haven't seen since a junior in high school, and feeling better than ever too.
I only check into racing on a few of the big days now. Frankly I just felt like I didn't recognize the game anymore and lost interest.
Anyway I hope all are doing well.
I see the same political storms are being fought on a daily basis around here by the same folks.
good luck to all.
Jim

Welcome back. And congratulations!

Don't lose too much weight, tho. Consider some weight training in your routine; The older we get the more it helps in many many ways towards good overall health and wellness. Having gone down the competitive triathlon route years ago, being too thin has its yellow flags as well. Eating right and smart exercise, it can make you feel 21 again. Congratulations for turning that clock back!
