Slow and steady


Karen and I have decided to have a friendly little competition* to see who logs the most miles this year. Currently, she is #14 and I am #24 in Massachusetts on bikejournal.com. Today’s ride stats:

Distance: 12.8 miles

Temperature (@ end): 36˚ F

Ride category: fun, quick spin

*friendly little competition is not really possible for me, I am not programmed that way. I almost got ejected from the General’s family kickball game. I figure this will be just the boost I need to keep my butt in the saddle. My plan is to ride whenever I can, even if it’s around the block. The mileage will add up, and at least I’m not counting any miles logged on the trainer. Right, friendly competition, friendly.

    We’re officially competing on this now? Oh boy. I really enjoyed having you as a friend, Heather. But if you are throwing down I’m in! But no fair on the trainer comment. I think I’m doing just fine considering the realm of responsibilties I have. For me–it’s the trainer or nothing! Besides–with the fresh new 12+ inches of powder on the way you’d better learn to love your trainer 🙂 Hey, is there a bet involved here? Like beer? Or bike gear?

  2. Heather says :

    Yeah, I was thinking about that. A gift certificate to Bike Nashbar or Performance Bike? $25?

  3. Karen says :

    You’re on. When’s the end date? By June 1st? Or straight through to 2009?

  4. Heather says :

    For the whole year, we’ll tally it up on 1/1/2009.

  5. Karen says :

    Consider it done.
