Better Health Through RAGBRAI

I had my annual checkup and my every other year blood workup this week. My cholesterol is down 50 points in the last four years. The first reading in 2006 was just before I started training for my first RAGBRAI. Despite not losing much weight, my blood health is headed in a good direction. I suspect I can attribute that to all the bicycling. Nice to see something is moving in the right direction after breaking 40. As an age-related bonus, my doc did point out that my chances of getting testicular cancer almost disappear after 40, so I should hit the grave with my balls intact.

I think you should tell him to make that the phrase he uses with all male patients over 40 - "now you'll hit the grave with your balls intact".
