5000 Miles This Year

Well that was actually a little anti-climactic. I hit 5000 miles for the year just north of Marley Mall as Chris and I rode in to work this morning. There were no balloons or confetti, no one jumped out and asked me if I was going to Disney World. But it is a neat milestone to contemplate. A year and half ago I weighed 300 lbs and 10 miles seemed like a big day on the bike. Today I'm planning my first 300K ride and feeling "slow" because my round drip to work was a mere 14.5 mph average speed.

Congrats to friend Chris. He got the club's High Mileage Award for July for the SPP mileage challenge, with over 1100 miles in July alone. He'll also hit 5000 for the year this week baring unforeseen circumstances.


  1. Balloons, streamers, fireworks, & confetti have all been launched in your honor. Congrats. I noticed that Chris "stole" the high mileage from you but that you are ahead in total miles, by just a few.


  2. Congrats on the big mileage. I'll get there soon. Only 3,600 to go!
