Not 70


Funny how the weather forecast of almost 70 degrees and partly cloudy actually turned out. Foggy. light rain, and a high of 52. I was a little apprehensive about riding in the reduced visibility, but, I had the day off, so I went anyway. It turned out that there wasn't much traffic out there. I got pretty well soaked, but was comfortable, and my clean bike sure isn't clean anymore, but I got in 33.12 miles at 16.7. That puts me at 4003.85 for the year. So both my goals got made (the other was averaging 18 mph), and I still have almost two weeks to go.
I guess it's time to think about next years goals. That Century challenge Sarah is doing sounds like it might be a fun thing to do. I am definitely thinking about it.

Congrats on reaching 4000! What a coincidence we both got there today, in the rain. The wet glasses are a problem for me too. After a while I end up sticking them in my helmet and squinting a lot.

I thought about taking them off - blind either way, but at least they keep the rain drops out...

Thanks for your encouragement and example. I might have given up.

Take care.

Congrats on the 4,000 miles...I can only hope I might be able to attain a goal like that in 2009. You and Sarah are both an inspiration to me. Now about that century challenge...still pondering how I might meet the challenge over the next 2 months...not sure it's doable. :)
