I'm not looking to make this blog a personal blog about how hard life is or how rough the world treats me because frankly life is not as hard for me as for some, and the world doesn't single anyone out - it just is what it is and we all experience it in our own way.
I've been trying to get to this point for many years now - my health is okay and my fitness is deteriorating so I put forward a goal of riding regularly. Now, this is Columbus so there are a few months of the year that only the most dedicated cyclists can enjoy, but I have a goal to reach and posting it here will serve as the constant reminder.
By August of next year I want to be in shape enough and driven enough to attempt a ride from Cleveland to Cincinnatti over the course of a single weekend. I will need to make some changes and amp up the discipline a bit over the coming months to train myself into that sort of form, but a goal must be set and efforts must be made.
