Hi Stephanie! I hear you about the extra pounds. I've been dragging around 40 extra and then whoops. Added another 20. As soon as I stop riding in the winter, it just shows up. Coupled with some medication I had to take. Well, hopefully it's gone before I have to shed the jacket and leggings eh?
I'm not good at road, I do mtn and cross. I never pay attention in a pack so I would probably cause an accident lol. But I do ride on the road. Not very fast :) haha
Welcome to the team, sounds like you are quite busy. Don't think I will ever race, but sure enjoy watching those who do.

Hi! My name is Stephanie. I've returned to SP after several months leave as my weight was starting to creep up and I needed some accountability. I've been a cyclist for 15 years and have been racing at the local amateur level since 2007. I train with a coach year round and race track, road (criterium, road and time trials). I recently started doing some running too. In the last 7 days that I've been watching what I eat and tracking calories in/calories out, I've felt sooo much better, with more energy for my workouts and better sleep. I've started to look around my "community" here a little more and I'm grateful for you all sharing your journeys with us here! Happy Riding!
