2010 is dead. Long live 2011.
On the bike this year? Uh, pathetic, at least by my usual standards. 2,020 miles, my lowest annual total since I started keeping records in 1993. I didn't even top the 2,050 from 2007... which was the year I broke my leg. Sad.
That brings my recorded total up to 39,553 miles since '93. At one point, my goal was 50,000 miles by the time I turn 40, but I'm going to have to have a pretty amazing 2011-2012 to make that happen. Maybe 50,000 by the time I'm 50? Or maybe I'll start recording in kilometers to make the numbers look bigger.
Blog-wise, though, I couldn't be happier. People actually seem to be reading this drivel, my wonderful spouse has made it look infinitely better than I ever could, and we even got a paid advertisement (thanks again to the good folks at Headwater Cycling for that). To think I've only been at this for three years! Why, at this rate, I'll be able to quit my day job by the time I'm 73!
So, as we stumble forward into what I'm sure will be the future utopia promised by the Jetsons, I'd like to send a huge thanks to the readership (yes, even the ones who came here on accident looking for motorcycles, lunar cycles, the movie Psycho or -- shudder -- the Iowa State Cyclones) and wish the whole lot of you a happy new year. May your rubber side always be down and the wind ever at your back in 2011.
