Persistence and goal-setting paid off. :)

I'll hit the 1000K mark on my way home from work tonight. It was tough getting here this month because I didn't ride at all during the first two weeks of July. In fact, the only reason I made it is...

Put in another 100. So, 550 mtd.

So, with the 250 logged since Sunday, I'm now less than 100 miles short of 1000K for the month. I shouldn't have any trouble hitting it over the next three days....

Rolled out with a storm coming right at me. It was about 60 miles away. The weather ticker said I had about an hour and a half though before it hit. It was right. I only ran into a few sprinkles....

Pretty good ride in. 4th straight day of riding 50-plus. So, I felt a bit rough when starting out. But, I caught a second wind soon enough and had a nice run after all.

Cars pass me on double-yellow all the time. I never really give it much thought, but there have been two occasions when the fool almost hit someone head on.

Knocked out a 100 in the past two days. So, 450 mtd. Still a lousy total for the month. I never made up that lost two weeks. But, I hope to end it strong.

Nice, fast commute this morning. No wind, warm but not uncomfortable. Humid but not like yesterday. High this afternoon should only be 84 or so. That's about perfect. Lat night's commute saw low...

Warm & muggy, worse than it was Friday. Arrived to work drenched, as if I rode through rain, except my shoes weren't soaked. Oh well, it's that time of year.
