1.5 servings?

i don't understand how a bag of potato chips or a can of soda can be 1.5 servings? of course, i shouldn't be eating chips or drinking soda, so i have no reason to be ranting about such a thing, but it annoys me nonetheless. that being said, try these chips - they rock - and don't make me feel like i'm breaking my training table discipline. but they are 1.5 servings to a bag. wtf? who eats 2/3rds of a bag of chips and then saves the other 1/3rd? do you then buy another bag of chips the next day, eat 2/3rds of that bag and save the other 1/3rd - then combine the two 1/3rd bags into a full serving for the 3rd day? man, that's a lot of work to get one f'ing serving of chips.

talking about crap-food, here's one of many
scary articles on high fructose corn syrup (do a google search on high fructose corn syrup and the truth will reveal itself). i decided to cut HFCS out of my diet about a year ago (with the exception of the beloved cola during some races) - and began finding it in everything. from powerade to bread, most products have some HFCS in them to extend shelf life (with its friend, hydrogenated oil)... HFCS doesn't even get broken down in the stomach, but in the liver. i don't know what that means, but i have a feeling it's not good. (Shopping at trader joes has helped as they don't source HFCS in their foods).

i've been diggin' jason's (aka, mr
soiled chamois) cooking habits. way to be healthy - good food = good fuel = good riding! all the beer i swill probably negates the fact that i watch everything else i stuff into my mouth... but who's perfect? question for jason is, how dirty are those chamois? i heard about this 24hr race team that would share a pair of chamois for a whole race? now that's dirty.... but i guarantee when racer A's scabies get onto a brother's cock and balls, those chamois get washed.

I hear you on the beer. I once saw a quote in Men's Health or some other fitness rag that said "Beer contains hundreds on useless calories, but It's great motivation for doing your workout." Cheers to that!

You've done Solos. Hour 12 or 13, you try to put on some fresh chamois and whoooo mama, there it is. The soiled chamois. In hindsite probably a sick name for a blog but what the F.

jm, the blog name makes perfect sense - if they aren't dirty, you aren't an endurance rider. it just made me think of the 4 guys at moab24 who claimed to share one set of chamois for the whole race... and if you were one of those dudes! assos + clean chamois at hour 12 may be the greatest fucking thing that has ever happened me to, besides the beer after.

Those dudes are sick. I can't imagine strapping on the chamois after some other dude's junk was in it, soiling it up.
yikes! Ah yes, the post 24 beer could be the best. Along with the millions of calories I consume all week!
