I knew i wasn't going to be God's gift to cycling when is started 6 months ago. But i knew my wife is a pretty fast, strong cyclist. Especially when compared to most triathletes. But while riding these last 6 months i've gained a new appreciation for how much faster she is than me and even more so how much faster pros are than her. It's really difficult for a non cyclist to grasp the disparity between a competitive age grouper and an pro cyclists.

These guys running 400+ watts for an hour or more is just amazing to me.
