Great day!!

Today was a great day.
1. I was able to finally break the 200 lb barrier. Mind you it was only 199.6, but it's less than 200.
2. I really found out how much of a difference it makes to lube the chain and have the right air pressure on the tires. I was able to shave 4 min on my personal best for 10 miles.

It was a great day.

Awesome! Congratulations!
With every ride, I get a little stronger. I gain a little stamina. I gain a little pride. And so I await the next ride...

Riding slow is not a sign of weakness. Quitting is.
