Put me down for 125 miles. If I can hit my goal with time in the month to spare, then I'll revise my goal upwards to 150 miles.

2/27 — Snow is melting, so dirt/gravel roads are muddy and wet. Took the Fuji out for a combination road and gravel cruise, with plenty of mud, some going uphill. I'm proud to say I remained upright and met my goal of 100 miles for the month. I'm realizing climbing and struggling is a good way to fight back against the great deal of anger I have bottled up inside. There, I said it.

Thanks to the participants in this thread for encouraging me, probably without realizing it.

2/5 — 24.1
2/7 — 15.1
2/20 — 17.0
2/21 — 25.2
2/24 — 3.0
2/27 — 17.2

MTD — 101.6

Broke away from the office a little early on Friday to dial in the used bike I just picked up, a Spesh Epic Expert. Racing her this weekend. Put in a dozen miles before the sun went down and I lost daylight.

Worked hard racing today, but after an hour and 20 minutes of hard fought competition, got edged out of the podium by 8 seconds! 4th place. Gives me something to work towards next time.

MTD 181 miles.
