WOOHOO! Soles of my shoes are CLEAN!
OK, for you hard-cores out there this may seem like a silly thing to get exited about. But for me this is a major milestone.
My 15 mile commute to work includes several nasty hills. When I first started the commute I ended up off the bike walking up most of the hills. Over time I've walked less and peddled more.
Well, today for the first time my shoes didn't touch the pavement on ANY of those hills! Rode them all! Sure, my lungs were ready to explode, my legs were jello, and I was about ready to puke a couple times, but I DID IT! And to top that off, I did the commute in just under an hour, another goal I had set for myself. This is HUGE!
'course, by far the worse hill is just before my house on the commute home. No way I'm ready to peddle that one yet, but that's my next goal.
