700 miles by Dec 31, 2011

So, I was in need of some motivation to get my
butt in gear. Ever since I had to give up my gym
membership, I have had a hard time getting
motivated to get out an exercise. When I gave up the
gym, I asked my hubby to get me a bike so that
I could get exercise that way. It's one of my favorite
forms of exercise. Anyway, I started biking my girls
home from school, but it's not enough. Yesterday, I
attempted to ride for 20 min before picking them up...
still not enough. I planned a route for myself & decided
to do that before I pick them up.
My husband also came home contemplating his health &
needing to get back to his weekly rides. He's in much
better shape than I am, but since our move, has not
gotten on the road.
So, as I was planning my routes, I decided to challenge
him. So, we decided that 700 mile between now & Dec.
31st would be reasonable, but would also keep us accountable.
For some cyclists, this isn't very much, but for us it's plenty.
He has a very busy job & we have 2 kiddos & we just moved
and have lots of new house projects. So for us, this seems
just right.
We wanted to invite any of you that need some motivation or
just want to see what you can do. So, join us, while we try to
kick each other's butts :)
