    Around the world!

    I just passed the 24,902 mile mark today - the most exact distance I could find for the circumference of the Earth - after starting to ride back on Feb 24, 2002 (1422 days).

    Never thought I would have done such a thing in a decade when I started, let alone in less than 4 years.

    By Thursday, I'll pass 25,000 miles.

    Well, maybe I'll get four. I mean, I'm almost 57 so at the rate I did the first lap, I'd be 69 (almost 4 years for one lap). Don't know what kind of health I'll be in by then, but on the plus side, I'm putting miles on faster now.

    My daily average, including rest days and vacations, is presently 17.54 miles, but starting Jan 1st this year, I'm averaging 32.41! That would cut down the time needed a lot.

    Of course, four laps plus 392 miles is 100,000 miles! That definitely sounds cool!

    Don't think I'll live long enough to do a million though!
