So, December finally arrived. I was sitting at 3,586 miles. My goal of 3,650 was totally w/in sight. I was amazed how close I was and I had the ENTIRE month of December to ride 64 miles…
I hit my goal on Monday, December 5th. I was riding home from work when my odometer flashed the magic number. I stopped for a second, and texted my cycling neighbor with a “ding!” text to let him know I reached my goal. He hit 3,650 about 2 weeks prior.
I had 26 days left to the year. Should I go for 4,000 miles?
I decided not to. My original goal was to ride over 2,000 miles. On August 1st, I decided I’d shoot for 3,650. I did it. I did it.
Now, 2012 is here. My mileage for the year is back to ZERO. It’s a hard number to look at.
Time to get back out on the bike!
2011 may never be matched again. You never know.
