Chocolate Milk, Nature's "Sweet" Recovery Drink?

I recently had the luxury of linking up with a former co-worker of mine from Franklin Street Cycles (now The Bicycle Chain - Chapel Hill) for an afternoon mountain bike ride just west of Boulder, Colorado at Walker Ranch. Caldwell and I crossed paths in cyberspace on Facebook. We hadn't seen or spoken to each other since about 2002.

You see we worked at Franklin Street Cycles (Chapel Hill's finest bicycle institution) together in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Those were the days. Late nights, early rides, building trails and long days selling Trek 820s and Specialized S-Works. While the details of this era are too plentiful to list (and I think both my Mom and Dad regularly read this blog)......I will just go on with the purpose of this post. You see while I left Chapel Hill to move to Chicago (idiot!)...Caldwell moved to SoCal in hopes of becoming a rock star. Well he didn't quite make it as a rock star in LA.....but he did manage to land this timeless classic role in a once famous commercial from a few years back. Check it out.

Caldwell has returned to his roots in North Carolina with his wife and now lives in the Asheville, NC area. While he isn't touring the county with Slayer, he is part of The Reggie Warren Experience and loving it.

sweet fanny pack. also a fast, local triathlete swears by chocolate milk as a recovery drink. he also eats gummi bears as a substitute for gels. kids' foods rock.
