Bike Racing

Off the front in a bike race.
This is a picture of me racing bikes in college in 1992. I had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but didn't take the medication because I could never win when I took it, but I almost always placed well without it.

College was a crazy time for me, but I don't think I would do things differently. I wasn't ready to settle down and live the extremely controlled life it takes to manage a serious mental illness.

I was pretty much out of control, but I was enjoying myself. I'm sure others would see things differently because, while I could be very entertaining at times, I know I was often hard to deal with back then.
