  1. I ate a full rack of ribs at Hogs Breath the night before my first ironman. Just cause I love ribs. No other reason. Had to stop on the bike for the port-a-loos. Probably want a good choice to stomach that much food. Lol. I'm not real big. So that was a LOT of food. Now I eat whatever is around... but I'm only racing short course so I don't think it really makes a difference. Just avoid the spinach.

    Chain lube

    I very very rarely ride my bike outdoors, unless it's race day (that's about 10 times a year). I train under the house. My bike lives down there, and it can get pretty dusty. I'd like to be responsible for cleaning and lubing my own chain. So at the risk of (having been riding for 11 years) sounding like a newbie, tell me... how should I clean my chain?
