First Things First
Happy 2007! May this year be better than 2006!
I’ve been trying to get myself back on track with my fitness training. Running around Portland, riding my bicycle everywhere and piling on the miles, pull-ups and hand exercises to get ready for rock climbing.
So, I started the year at a party at the Portland World Trade Center and running 3 miles with a thousand other runners. I met two new friends and ran the entire course with them and then went out for an after-run breakfast then walked up to a local park for a late night toast with a bottle of champagne.
I didn’t bring my camera but there were photographers there taking pics of people as they crossed part of the course. I should have a picture of myself and my two new pals running with are arms together. It was grande!
Then, later that day I was getting restless and decided to go for a training ride since my miles have been short as of the last 4 months. I did a long tour around Portland and completely a brisk 35.5 miles by the time I got home.
What do I have for new years resolutions?
- At least one 24-hour bicycle race.
- Running at least one Marathon.
- Seattle to Portland in one day (200 miles).
- Summitting at least one of the cascades mountains.
- 10,000 miles via bicycle (trying again).
Aim big, or don’t aim at all.
