That problem is due to "authorities" and early adopters who were looking for an easy way out. It's hard to go from carefree to genuine low carb, so they listened to the food industry tell them whole wheat and brown rice and other stuff were good enough. They are not. They are carbs that turn into sugar just a smidgen slower than white bread and rice, but not slow enough to make a difference.

Stand still, laddie.

My daughter, however, is not one of those girls. Thankfully, she's good at hitting the ball a long ways, and enjoys an easy-paced 240' trot.

She got all of that.

Drinking alcohol while riding is no bueno. Outside of that, I rarely drink liquid carbs unless Iím riding. Most Iíll do is an occasional bottle of juice.

BillyD gets it. Sadly, most of my patients (and most Americans) do not.

Yeah I should have clarified that. I don't drink alcohol so pretty much the ONLY time I drink anything with carbs in it is when I am on a long ride. Even a shorter ride (say under 3 hours) I drink water. Only on longer rides do I advise drinking some carbs. As always, YMMV.

Amish butter?

It's got a higher fat content than most regular butters. Richer flavour.

So, like regular butter, but even worse for you? Sounds great!

I guess they got a little snow at Yellowstone this morning.

but it's warmed up this afternoon, so shorts weather for the evening commute

Chilly. Snow in the high country coming this week.

A few of reasons why I won't. Although she has had serious interest from a few D1 college coaches, she doesn't want to live the regimented, high-demand lifestyle of a D1 athlete. Some young athletes thrive in that environment, and others tolerate it when there's a giant potential payoff on the other side (pro). My kid is not one of those, and college will be the end of her softball career. Our goal is to find the right college fit for her, not just the highest level of softball. Also, she wants to stay on the west coast or mountain region. Next month, we will be visiting some schools in OR and No. CA that fit with what she's looking for, and have expressed a high level of interest in recruiting her for softball.

Actually, she didn't. It was a bit off the end of the bat, and only went about 215'. Her full squared-up power is around 260'. That said, I love that her swing produces miss-hits that go yard. :)

This is the other side of her game - catcher...

I wish I had that youthful arm.

As I commented recently in this thread, I haven't been able to throw as hard as her since she was 13. Partly because I was never a throwing-sport athlete and my mechanics are mediocre, partly because I hurt myself trying, and partly because she built a cannon for herself with dedicated hard work and high-quality instruction.
