    Goals, how have you fared so far.

    I've done away with one goal and that was to do a 24 hour race, changed that to a total miles goal.

    So far I've:

    Remained injury free relatively.
    Well on pace for my mileage goal of 16,000 miles.

    Goals Completed:

    Have successfully Completed an unsupported Trail Century.
    Proved to my friend who is a LBS owner that I am not compatible with dual compound michelins.
    Got over my fear of small children.
    Switched over to a 20mm dropout fork
    Manualling Log Rides.

    It's been a good year so far.

    How about you?

    I don't have any goals, but I have things that I want to do (i guess they could be considered goals...)

    8 hr. ride
    Take advantage of the trails near me (since I will have my license)
    Hook up w/ other riders and go on some group rides

    Thats about all

    there were several goals.

    1. wanted to bike all through the winter. 2-3 days a week. So far I have done that successfully. but, this winter was/is pretty mild. I had the same goal last winter, but I had to stop half way through.

    2. got the bike that I wanted - Kona Cinder Cone

    3. lost 15lbs, winter training and biking. getting ready for an action packed spring and summer.

    4. trying to organize a bike recycling project for the kids (street children) in developing countries. there are several on going projects, but I am trying to start one for a particular part of the globe. still a lots of works to do. wish me luck.

    above all, having a great time with my family.

    I am actually a little ahead of my total mileage goal so far. My goal is 6,000 miles. That shouldn't be a problem.

    I want to do some road races this year. I was supposed to do my first last weekend but it was postponed due to snow. I am planning on doing one or two this coming weekend though.

    I want to do at least 95% of the workouts my coach sets up for me. So far I have only missed two since September.

    I want to be at 165 pounds for xc race season, it begins April 23 for me. I am currently at 170 pounds so that shouldn't be a problem. I may actually shoot for 160 pounds.

    I want to get some podium finishes this season and move up to expert in 2007. Still too early to know how this is going to workout.

    I want to attend the mtbr slatyfork shuffle again this year and possibly one other gathering. Shouldn't be a problem.

    I want to lead group rides with riders of all ages and abilities. I hope to get a lot of new people interested in the sport.

    I want to purchase a new home this year. Hopefully this one works out for me.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    My goal is to have the most fun possible riding my bike with my friends and son this year. I did have a couple of drops I wanted to do for a while but I didn't have the right bike. I got those out of the way as soon as I got the Bullit.
    Like a circus monkey on a stolen Harley......
