Just hit 3k for the year (most miles-ever). 1 century down and another comming up in 2 weeks (Seagull Century). I'm feeling like I'm in top form; better than I've ever felt. If the weather doesn't get too ugly too quick, I could be looking at 4k! This is uncharted territory for me. I have gone from avoiding hills to looking for new climbs every week. Still don't climb great, but at least I'm not a rock; I actually pass alot of people now, climbing. This qweek, the weather looks great, so I'll get in a 100+ again, before the weekend! (Working 2nd shift has advantages-don't have to worry about daylight savings time). Life is very good.......
