The rain was torrential yesterday. Not only that, but the roads seemed to be especially prone to flooding. Not sure if the drainage points were clogged or what, but on several occasions i got slapped by the semi-truck splashes. It was like getting hit by a pressure washer. The 422 Bridge was especially prone to this phenomenon.
It went something like this: Here comes the Truck! Splash! Head Down. Get hammered by the water. Repeat.
The spray was so intense that it would go up my sleeves in my rain coat and stop at my shoulder, or down my neck and stop at my waist. needless to say I was soaked, but it was warm so it wasn't that bad.
I found a story about a guy who lost half his body weight thanks to cycling. Check it out at: http://www.startribune.com/lifestyle/health/16782826.html
It's proof that anyone can lose weight without surgery. Is it hard? Yes. Impossible? No.
