Julie and I are neck and neck in fundraising this year. Probably because many of you donate to both of us (thank you for that).
2018 has been a busier year than average. I’m not sure exactly why, but I know I wanted to make Thank You Songs™ for each and every one of you and that idea has fallen flat. I am also behind on my training. I don’t feel as good as I have in past years. There are plenty of miles (2,500) under my belt for the year, but too many of those have been soccer practice and regular slow going errands, not enough “workout” rides.
It’s like walking vs. running. You can’t train for a marathon by walking even if walking is fun.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the slow going errand rides far more than I do the fast moving training rides. The bike-exercise is just something that I have to do to participate in the PMC. It’s the only way to manage the distances in a reasonable amount of time and with minimal pain at the end. So, as I type this on a Sunday, I’m convincing myself to get on one of the bikes and go ride in the rain for a few hours because I will be no time during the week to do it.
Yes, one of the bikes. Today looks like a super fun fat-bike-in-the-woods day. Or possibly night.
