    Congrats to Elden, Lisa and the rest of the Fat Cyclist/The Runner family!

    One question: do your dress shoes have cleats on them? ‘Cause that would be awesome.

  10. Comment by Lisa | 03.3.2010 | 4:41 pm

    Lisa/Runner, you are gorgeous and I adore your dress! I’m also glad to see you have hair, since most of your photos on here have been in caps and/or bike helmets.

    All my best to your new family, your new life. Ride off into the sunset, once the snow melts….

    I’m thrilled. You’re both beautiful.

    Congratulations to you both. Elden, you have run a long race in life and it looks like you finally won.

  14. Comment by FNEditor | 03.3.2010 | 4:45 pm

    Just further evidence of my cute girl/goofy guy theory. I can’t think of anyone I know, or even recall seeing where the guy is better looking than the girl. Equal sure, but better looking, no.

    Congratulations. My parents are celebrating their 53rd anniversary today. It must be a good date for weddings.

    Congratulations. Thank you for sharing pics…it looks beautiful.

    I really like the first picture — big smiles all around, everybody looks really REALLY happy!

    I also like the last pic too. I hope your days are full of the same joy and fun.

  17. Comment by Denise | 03.3.2010 | 4:54 pm

  39. Comment by cece at work | 03.3.2010 | 5:11 pm

    As I was driving to work today, the sun was shining and it was a glorious day! I thought.”I hope Fatty and the Runner have a womderful wedding today!” And it looks like you gys did! Congrats and thanks for the terrific pics! It is nice to be included in your happy day…many more to come!

  40. Comment by ant1 | 03.3.2010 | 5:12 pm

    congrats you two (i was gonna say “fat runner”, as a combination of fat cyclist and the runner now that you are officially joined, but figured Lisa might not like that term, we’ll have to think of something else). btw, the superfly matches your tux nicely.

  41. Comment by Philly Jen | 03.3.2010 | 5:15 pm

    I now pronounce you Runner and Mr. Runner.

    All best wishes!

  42. Comment by Grizzly Adam | 03.3.2010 | 5:17 pm

    Any wedding with a Super Fly as a guest of honor is a good wedding. Congrats! Here’s to long and happy days (and rides) ahead.

  43. Comment by Philly Jen | 03.3.2010 | 5:20 pm

    P.S. Nice “Philly Jen” face, Nigel!

  44. Comment by Kelly | 03.3.2010 | 5:24 pm

    Best. Wedding pictures. EVER. Congratulations to you and your family! That last photo had me cackling and clapping my hands in glee. May you have many, many happy years together!

  45. Comment by Lisa | 03.3.2010 | 5:24 pm

    Congrats! Awesome pics.

  46. Comment by Nick | 03.3.2010 | 5:25 pm

    I’ll say it once and I’ll say it again. Either The Runner is the dumbest woman in the world or Fatty’s the luckiest SOB. The Armenians have a saying “May you both grow old on one pillow.” Mazel tov.

    You and Runner make a wonderful couple and the family looks great!

  49. Comment by Soul Rider | 03.3.2010 | 5:32 pm

    Congratulations Fatty & Runner! You’re both looking looking quite dapper in your tux & dress, it looks a little cold, though.

    All the best!

  50. Comment by Kathy | 03.3.2010 | 5:35 pm

    What a handsome tribe of kids you guys have – oh and the adults clean up well too!! Congratulations!

  59. Comment by Janet | 03.3.2010 | 6:06 pm

    HOORAY! Many many congratulations! I do believe that’s your best/highest jump yet!

  60. Comment by Pip | 03.3.2010 | 6:11 pm

  61. Comment by Jenn | 03.3.2010 | 6:11 pm

    Oh yay – thanks for posting pics! You all look wonderful and indeed, the runner’s dress is right on.

    What a glorious day! Awesome pictures – you all look so happy! Especially love the two on a bike photo. Many happy years and good blessings to you.

  67. Comment by G in Morocco | 03.3.2010 | 6:29 pm

    Same as everyone… Congrats! When else would a snowy wedding be so rad?

    Keep in mind, though, that you all are in no way as lame as the Brady Bunch.

    Just sayin’.

  68. Comment by KK | 03.3.2010 | 6:31 pm

    Congratulations and best wishes to your family. By the way, where do you get the cleated dress shoes?

  69. Comment by bobbie | 03.3.2010 | 6:37 pm

    AWESOME pix, Fatty!!! TFS ~
    I especially enjoy the ‘jump’ one!
    congratulations ~~~

  70. Comment by Pedalpink | 03.3.2010 | 6:41 pm

    Thanks for sharing your special day with all of us, Elden and Lisa (wiping a little tear from my eye). The picture of the Fatty sox with tuxedo was too funny. And, finally, a jump shot!

    I am kicking myself a little, however. I wish I’d thought to find someone in your area who would have lent you a tandem bicycle for this special day. Maybe an old Schwinn Twinn with a basket. And the music playing, “On a bicycle built for two…”

    In fact, you will definitely want to be looking at tandems after you are done with Ironman. Sure, Leadville is tough on a single speed. But only six teams competed on a tandem last year.

  71. Comment by Katie | 03.3.2010 | 6:45 pm

    Congrats Fatty & family – live long & prosper

  72. Comment by Tim | 03.3.2010 | 6:54 pm

    As the father-to-be of identical twin girls (6 weeks to go), it’s amazing to see what twins look like when they grow up. Great looking family you guys have.


  73. Comment by Gillian | 03.3.2010 | 6:55 pm

    Class! Beautiful bride, handsome groom, and the twins are such dolls! Xoxoxo gill

  74. Comment by Gil Middlebrooks | 03.3.2010 | 6:55 pm

    Congrats!!! Your combined family looks great. If you have only half the happiness and inspiration that you provide to all of us, you’ll do just fine.

    Wish I could be there for the party!

  75. Comment by Joel P. | 03.3.2010 | 6:56 pm

    Where you also wearing bibs under your tux? Much happiness to the new family.

    P.S. Nice try but nobody does the Philly Jen face better than the creator herself.

    Madness I say !!! 7 kids of which 4 of them are already bigger than the newlyweds (and 3 will soon follow).

    What were you thinking.

    You better be nice to them or they will gang up on you.

    Best of luck to all.

  88. Comment by Jenni | 03.3.2010 | 7:46 pm

    I can see how much The Runner loves Fatty, she wore flats. (:o) Her idea or yours Fatty?

    So many congratulations to your family. I cannot believe how beautiful (and mature!) the twins look.

    You deserve every happiness. Enjoy the honeymoon.

  89. Comment by Bander | 03.3.2010 | 7:51 pm

    Fatty, did you really think that we would not notice that you are standing on a pile of snow/ice in picture #2 in a feeble attempt to not look shorter than your bride? Embrace the shortness and baldness that is you, it clearly has not stopped you from scoring hot ladies.

    Oh, and congrats.

    Congratulations! Looks like smiles all around.

    I’m feeling a little lacking in the fashion dept, not having a suit and bike that match.

    LOVE it! great pictures, beautiful family! nice socks! CONGRATULATIONS!

  93. Comment by Peg | 03.3.2010 | 8:00 pm

    I thought of you several times today and wondered what the wedding would be like. The photos were better than anything that I could have imagined! Best wishes to all of you for many, many years of happiness!!

  94. Comment by Dave | 03.3.2010 | 8:06 pm

    Congrats to both of you! What, no FC socks for the Runner?

    Seven kids now. That is a lot of sandwiches to make. The Brady’s had Alice and they had only six kids to make sandwiches for.

    Congratulations all the same.

  106. Comment by Bee | 03.3.2010 | 9:32 pm

    Awwwwww! I agree that the Runner rocks that dress. What lovely pictures, and a beautiful family shot, and the whole thing just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Esp since so many of Fatty’s friends seem able to quote The Princess Bride so easily. SO sweet!

    Have fun! I’m looking forward to the Old Archives, and the Jenn-Suggested Reading List of History.

    Thanks for the jump photo :)

  108. Comment by DrBryce | 03.3.2010 | 9:47 pm

    Ok, settle debate: Meuller Park Canyon for the photos or somewhere near Timp? My wife and I are in a disagreement with where the photos were taken.

    Great pics, great family photo, great looking kids and laugh out loud fun with the bike, socks and jump.

    Congrats to you and yours’, so happy for you!

    We had the wedding — and took all the photos — at the Mile Rock Picnic area, which is in AF Canyon, about 1.3 miles up after you turn toward Tibble Fork Reservoir – FC

  109. Comment by Scott in MN | 03.3.2010 | 9:55 pm

    @smithmtbr what and why?
    What’s your point and why even bother?
    It’s just some nice pics of very nice people on a very special day – get over it and move on or in your case move away.

    Well done to the photographer – some excellent memories.

    Congratulations and best wishes!!!

  123. Comment by Big Mike In Oz | 03.4.2010 | 12:59 am

    Fatty, That first photo is ominous. From the looks of it, you’re only about 2 years away from being the shortest in the family. Especially since that last photo has obviously been tampered with to make you seem like the best jumper.

  124. Comment by Jenn | 03.4.2010 | 1:28 am

    The runner looks positively stunning – GREAT dress! Fatty, you clean up nice, too. Thanks so much for sharing! It makes me happy (nice way to start the day) to share in your happiness!

    Awesome Fatty and Runner I’m so super happy for you both. I notice you used a single speed with suspension. Did you find that made the vows smoother and did it impact on the photography?

    Hi folks – congratulations on your marriage. I can’t saw how good it is to see a smile on your face once again Fatty – I wish you, The Runner, and the whole Brady Bunch the best wishes that I can possibly conjure up.

    I look forward to following the next exciting chapters in your lives.

    Congrats to you both and all the kids from Gainesville GA. I hope you have many years of happiness.

    Fatty did have greater hight, could be the quads, could be he wasn’t jumping in a dress and hose!

    I’ve emailed my girlfriend (not that we’re at that point) and suggested that it’s clear now that bikes are allowed to be involved with weddings.

    I don’t want to say my carbon road bike will be my best man but….

    Congrats to both of you!!

  141. Comment by Allison F | 03.4.2010 | 8:18 am

    Congratulations Fatty! Your pictures brought back wonderful memories for me. I married my husband, who I met through adventure racing and mountain biking, in the snow in a beautiful wooded park in New Jersey. Our fifth anniversary is tomorrow March 5th. How wonderful it is to go through life with someone that shares your passion. We’ve done the Transalp Challenge (8-day mountain bike stage race) together 4 times now… the first as teammates, the second as boyfriend/girlfriend, the third engaged, and the forth as husband and wife.
    May you have a blessed life together!

    If you hadn’t done the “jump shot”, you wouldn’t be legally married blogwise, so thanks to Kellene for taking care of the details. Congratulations to the new family – you make a beautiful team!

  150. Comment by VeloLoser | 03.4.2010 | 9:54 am

    The “jump shot” might be the best wedding picture I’ve ever seen.

    Frankly? I am disappointed!
    You get married and your amazing quads are not showing?

    surely this is your best feature (let’s admit it – it ain’t your face!) :-) .

    Congratulations from the bottom of my heart!!!!! I wish you just joy, zero heartache.

    WOW! What great photos. Elden, just knowing what you’ve been through the last many months, the smile on your face makes not just my day, but probably my whole month. All the best to you and yours.

    Hope I see all of you in California in May for our Tour. Meanwhile it’s train train train for the 100 Miles of Nowhere.

    Congratulations!!! Everyone looks so happy and content in the photos! After a few years of hardship, everyone deserves to have a break! Susan is most definitely in your heart every day — I am certain! — and I’m also certain she wants you and the children to be happy as well.

    Smiles and cheers from Ontario, Canada :)

    P.S. Maybe you could make winter biking an official olympic sport???

    Fatty, you have my saddle bag :) Ummm…..can I have it back.

    I’m also fixed, er, my Bianchi, not me. I lost interest in geared cycling long, long ago.

    Congrats to your family. Stay happy and safe cycling, running, and swimming.

  181. Comment by Sam | 03.5.2010 | 3:09 am

    those are absolutely gorgeous photos – you all look a though you are having a fabulous time….although it looks like you’ll be needing a bigger house!! ;-)

    Fatty, I’ve been reading your blog for some time although I’m not a cyclist nor am I athletic (except for 2.5 miles I jog on my treadmill each day). I love your writing and wit. Thank you for sharing wedding pics – I’m thrilled for your happiness and your blended family is lovely. May you be blessed with many, many happy and fulfilling years together!

  184. Comment by Wes | 03.5.2010 | 8:17 am

    Congrats Fatty! although I don’t understand how the ugly guys end up with the prettiest women. My wife refuses to reveal the answer….

  197. Comment by Asher | 03.8.2010 | 6:49 pm

    I’ve been reading your blog for a couple of weeks now, so I officially feel like I know you well enough to say, “Congratulations!” without feeling like a total Buttinski.

    These may, in all honesty, be the best wedding pictures ever (even better than my sister’s — don’t tell her, she’ll kill me!).

    Congratulations again — I wish you all a lifetime of happiness!

    Wow–I’m seriously behind on my Fatty posts, but had to offer my congratulations as soon as I read this. I’m happy for you. All the best to you two!

  204. Comment by Ady from the UK | 03.21.2010 | 1:34 am

    I have not visited your blog in quite a few weeks and so was wonderfully surprised and tremendously delighted this morning to read both this and the previous invitation posts.

    May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, The rains fall soft upon the fields. May the light of friendship guide your paths together. May the laughter of children grace the halls of your home. May the joy of living for one another trip a smile from your lips, A twinkle from your eye. May the good Lord embrace you with the arms that have nurtured you the whole length of your joy-filled days. May the gracious God hold you both in the palm of His hands. And, today and always, may the Spirit of Love find a dwelling place in your hearts. Amen.

    Congratulations to you both and God bless.

    Ady from UK
