Picture of the Day – “My New 700c Baby” Edition

I never would have thought it of myself, but I love being active. I love to exercise. I’ve shed right at 100lbs in under two years. Two summers ago, I started reworking my lifestyle by cutting out sugars, processed foods, and simple carbohydrates. Last summer, I started running with the Ease into 5k app for iOS and playing tennis 2-3x a week with my wife. This year, I want to continue the trend by adding biking to the mix. I live in a small town, so I can easily make my local trips via bike.

With my sale of “Working Retail” to Buzzymag.com, I decided to spend part of my first professional royalty check on the Thruster 700c Fixie bike. I got it this morning and promptly spent 3 hours riding around town. My legs and tail are so sore, but it’s awesome. I love it. It’s my new baby.
