146 miles...

So many of you may recall that Jeff rode the RAMROD in July last year. Yes, this time last year Jeff & his friend Joan were getting ready to conquer Mt. Rainier via bicycle. That ride was 146 miles and change.

Since then Jeff has not been riding much. Getting ready for Jack, then the birth, the fourth trimester, new job, doing two jobs, Jack, Jack, Jack, etc, etc... you see where this is going...

I rode home today on my Cyclocross bike today. As I strained and wheezed air out of my out-of-shape lungs and my quads chattered at me like a disgruntled old man getting miffed at a youngster for not showing respect it dawned on me that I don't think I've ridden 146 miles since that day.

That's a downright frightening thought. I must fix it.
