riding a lot makes everything way more awesome.

i'm pretty good at appreciating eating and sleeping times, but especially in the last few weeks, as i've returned from ecuador and had time to be more focused on riding, i have become an eating and sleeping superstar. i'm not just hungry anymore, i'm ridiculously hungry, and whatever i'm eating is the best food ever*. and at bedtime (or, um, during the afternoon sometimes) i'm not just sleepy, i'm super sleepy, and i've been sleeping better than ever (which is amazing.)

*"best food ever" does not always apply to energy bars/sports fruit snacks. those are just excellent.

Fellow Fat Cyclist fan here...saw your comment on his blog today and followed it here.

I so agree with this post! Those are two of the very best side effects of training hard! I'm in SF too :-)

Word!! And for the record, the definition of "Best Food Ever" has always been, and will always be Jack's Urban Eats mashed potatoes after 45 miles in the cold and rain.
