This is the first year I’ve kept consistent records about my bicycling mileage. I have no way to be sure, but it feels like I rode a lot less this year than in years past.
At least now, I have a baseline against which to compare future year’s cycling accomplishments.
New Year Resolutions
- Weigh Less – I’m shooting for 100 pounds less. General lethargy, coupled with my fondness for curry and beer have inflated me to the point that bicycling and hiking are becoming much less pleasurable than before. The less I ride, the bigger I get, the bigger I get, the less I ride. This is a recipe for disaster. The line must be drawn here.
- Ride my bike more – I’m shooting for 2,000 miles. I bought a house within easy commuting distance to my office, and I’m taking an online class for the spring semester. I really have no excuse to use my car much anymore. This should help with goal #1, too.
- Crush my enemies, see them driven before me, and hear the lamentations of their women. As soon as I’m back into fighting shape, you fuckers better run.
Now, I’m going to spend the last few hours of 2007 to use up what’s left of my curry and beer reserves.
