Almost as soon as I walked in the door after work, last night, I was informed by my son that he isn't allowed to have juice, anymore. This caught me off guard, as we usually allow our kids to have a bit of juice in the morning, and a bit with their snack in the evening. Then, he told me we have to stop giving him milk, too. That was when I decided that perhaps Mrs. Pol would be a better source of information.
I'll use myself as an example of why I question the value of the BMI statistic. Consider this picture (or others from the header and profile) from IM Louisville. At the check-in, I weighed 163 pounds. By the end of the race, I was much closer to 160. These pictures give a reasonable picture of where I was physically.
Just who is this Iron Pol?
A former out of shape sailor, who became a marathoner, then a triathlete, Ironman, and ultramarathoner. Now, life has pushed me into short track speed skating. More important than the titles is the lifestyle, and sharing it with others.
