2017 Race Schedule

These are a list of races and events that I am planning on doing in 2017.  There could be changes made as I evaluate my race season and hear about new events.  I’ve included several tentative events that I would like to do, but since I already have 20 events planned, I’m still on the fence about them.  Do you have any recommendations for races or events that I should consider in this year?

  1. James, Saw your weight loss video on you tube. WOW! Curious to now, how tall are you? Do you feel your weight loss was more about what you ate or do you attribute it more to exercise. Both I assume, but did one impact the weight loss more then the other?

    • Diet is way more important than exercise. I rode my bike before I lost weight, but still put on the pounds. One gourmet cheeseburger can easily outset an hour of riding. Add some fries and your toast. 🙂 I eat mostly Paleo-style now and that makes it easy to keep the weight off. I’m 5’10”.
