This past week marked the 500 day milestone until 2013 and the ride. I also spent this past week on vacation cycling from Portland to Glacier National Park.
While it was a good tour, I also found it a little tougher than it should have been. Some of this is perhaps not being in the top shape and also weighing a little more than I should.
The combination of the 500 day milestone and the recent tour had me focus again on getting more in shape and prepared for that Africa trip that keeps getting closer.
