    2010 Goals!

    As a new decade is around the corner, have you thought about goals for next year? The next five years, or even the next decade? Do you have a resolution you can't wait to start (and keep going)? Let's hear them!

    My 2010 Goals:
    - To complete at least one century
    - To ride 75 miles a week
    - To make the switch to clipless pedals
    - To continue to enjoy and be passionate about the feeling on the road, no matter what 2010 may bring!
    One can make me love something by showing me the energy in which One loves it.

    1. 5000 miles. Booya!

    2. Do some organized club rides.

    3. Hit 205 lbs

    4. Be more kind and patient with all the idiots that I have to deal with on a daily basis. And, if necessary, find a better place to hide the bodies if I backslide a little bit. Hey I'm only human!!

    The new century starts with year one, so why doesn't the new decade? By my calculations, the new decade's still a year away.
    That which does not kill me has made a massive tactical blunder.

    I tried that argument with the turn of the century. The year 2000 was not the start of the new millennium, 2001 was. Nobody bought it then, either.

    Ride my first century, commute in the rain, and, oh yeah - be more tolerant of those not blessed with my looks, intelligence, and humility!

    I had a good year in 2009, covered 5050 miles and I lost 30 lbs. I'm in the 200-208 lbs range for the first time in 25 years.

    I'm going to resume commuting in February after a 15 month sabbatical. If the 2010 goes well, I should cover 7500 miles and get down to my stretch goal weight of 180 lbs. My other goals include 12 century rides.

    My goals for 2010 are to just try to become more healthy... That will mean losing weight working on endurance and just trying to become more healthy in general. I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired... Change must happen, and I must be the one to make it happen.
