Goals and Groups are Good

by on December 23, 2010

This Ride: 19.2 miles
Kona Distance: 5,471.1 miles
Month to date: 430.1 miles
2010 Total: 5,962.6 miles (37.4 to go for 6,000)

Had it not been for my goal of 6,000 miles for the year still within striking distance and had it not been for a regular group of riders, I would not have dragged myself out of bed this morning for a ride. But goals and groups are good.  They help keep me on track when the excuses lay in wait.

Seven of us were out in 32 F with strong north westerly winds.  That meant we had the wind in our faces on the return.  Bob C was out for the first time in a very long time.  It was good to see him.  I considered extending the ride at the end a bit, but there is a whole lot to do this morning, and those few extra minutes are important.

    Agreed! Honestly, where would we be without goals and groups…or dreams and friends. Best of luck in Kona!
