1,000 miles on the bike so far!
Friday, September 18, 2009
All day today I've been thinking about the fact that I'll get to ride my bike on a Friday night. Usually I have my daughter with me. But even more exciting is that I would probably hit my 1,000 mile mark for the season tonight!
I got on all my gear. (I need to find my gloves. It's been in the 60's lately!) And I grabbed my camera. I thought it would be fun to take a picture at the 1,000 mile mark. I checked the odometer...
It was already at 1008! Dang! I hit it last night and didn't even realize!
Oh well. I hit my 1,000 mile mark, and it felt pretty good to get there. One thousand miles! The two years before this, I'd only gone 305 miles combined.
I wish I remembered what day I started, but somewhere in April or May I suppose. I'm pretty pleased that I've done it, and kinda surprised. It seems like such a big number. I know real bikers put that number to shame, but for a shlub like me, so inactive at the beginning of this year, with my 'comfort bike', it's pretty good.
In other news, I walked at least 2 miles every day this week at lunch. Whoda thought I'd be all sweaty at the end of a walk? Kudos to you walkers.
Hope you all are well.
