I'm not saying that I have the genetic potential like these two guys by any means. These guys ride for pro teams. These guys are studs. They are fast, strong, thin and tough. They know how to suffer. They know how to spin and hammer and mash. They can climb and time trial. These guys can dish it out. Basically in my opinion they are freaks. In a good way I mean. I am not a freak in a good way. I am not fast and strong. I don't dish it out really. But I can spin and hammer and mash. I can be as strong as my genetics will allow and I can be as tough as my potential will let me. I have it. Looking at these two guys training today inspired me and made me realize that I do have what I need to be a great cyclist. I have what it takes. I do have everything I need. Looking at these guys on the trainer today inspired me. I got inspired about cycling. I was inspired today to realize that I am too fat. I got inspired to lose some weight. These two pros inspired me today to realize that I have 25 things I don't need either: 25 pounds.
This was the snowstorm I was talking about...
