For the last two years my goal has been to ride my bike for 2500 miles. Last year I only made it to 2292 but this year I did it--by the grace of God, I did it!
I was so excited when my odometer hit 2500 today that I shouted out loud--boy am I glad I was out in the middle of nowhere! I'm sitting at 2503 at the moment and I've decided that, since the weather is still going to be fairly nice in Minnesota, I'm going to try to make up the extra miles from last year so that I have an even 5,000 (or more) miles for the last two years.
Even if I couldn't ride anymore this year (due to weather), I would be very happy and feel like I did everything I set out to do this year. But it's kind of fun having one more thing to shoot for with an uncertain deadline, namely, when the snow flies!
I am so happy I could...I don't know what I could do, if I was southern I'd have had something great to say, but one way or the other I'm sure happy!
