    2008 Stats

    I know that most of you guys are "monsters" on the bike, but I just broke 200 miles for the season. Pretty good considering that I have also been a fair weather very casual rider in the past and have never done more than 250 miles in a summer. This year I decided to get "serious" and try and do break 500. I don't think I'll have problems doing that barring some unforeseen circumstances. I have finally gotten myself in shape enough to start a century training plan. My goal for this year is to ride the entire C&O Canal Towpath in 2 days. I was able to ride 15 out of 30 days in April, probably could've done more but I got hit by a sinus/allergy/cold/flu bug in mid month and knocked me out for 5 days. Without further ado!

    Paco, my friend, the only person you're in competition with is the prior version of yourself. Stick to that idea and you'll turn into a mile monster yourself. Each time you improve over a prior goal just adds to the capabilities you have already, but just don't know about yet.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.
