all i wanted this morning was eight miles. anything over that was icing on the cake. eight miles put me over 100 for the week. while getting over 100 miles each week isn't an official goal of mine like my year-end goal of 8040 miles, i know that i need to maintain at least that number of miles per week to have a chance at the other.
miles was all i got today. no real excitement. i rode out eight miles. i rode back eight miles. seven of the sixteen miles were ridden without a flashing taillight due to my barely awake state at from the start. thankfully, my headlight is bright and i was still visible from the rear. a cattle truck even passed me in the other lane! (16.05 miles @ 15.9mph)
