Excess is Necessary

Jacques Goddet, a French sports journalist and director of the Tour de France from 1936 to 1986, told riders “it's necessary to keep an inhuman side to the Tour. Excess is necessary.”
I believe if you want to succeed at anything you have to make a serious commitment, sometimes "Excess is necessary."

I have always been a little over the top when I get passionate about something. I was blessed with an over abundance of self confidence. There isn't anything I can't do if I set my mind to it and have God as a partner. What gets me into trouble is when I think I can do it all by myself.

I intend to use this space to report on my training and other excessive endeavors on my bikes and other areas of my life. My biking history will follow in the next few days.
