Today on a solo road ride, my first in over a month, I was chugging along at 18-20 mph. I was at mile 11 and I saw a shadow of another rider coming up behind me. I eased to my right and exchanged pleasantries with the first 2 riders. But then, I nearly wrecked myself when I saw the next rider was the dreaded fat lady in tight pink spandex. At least 225 lbs. and only about 5ft 2in.
She was passing me like I was standing still. Sure she was being pulled by 2 dudes, but the sight of the big woman passing me took away any pride I had.
I know I've heard some of you talk about similar embarassing experiences but for me it was a wake up call. I've got to get back in shape. And I made a promise to never call any one fat except for myself.
