#330daysofbiking Day 100: one hundred

Let’s just say  … I’ve been warned. 😉

One hundred days of riding since April 1st … and feeling like 100’F out there (even though I think we officially topped out in the 90’s once again).  Is this what are known as dog days?   I have to think so.

not quite ready for The Tour....

Everybody was off doing the things they do – band stuff, summer jobs, business travel.  It was me, myself, and I once again.  I started the day on the Greenway early this morning, thinking it would be a change to take a run (which I like to do – occasionally).  But as I started off, I could tell it was already too hot for me; so I ended up walking.   I ran into two bike police-men, and maybe they actually were more fit than they looked, but they appeared to be kind of dragging in the heat.  Great to see them on bikes, but made me a little nervous, actually.  (Envisioning seeing one of them passing out from heat exhaustion/over-exertion :-0 ).

Watched the Tour during the heat of mid-day, and ended up riding later in the afternoon.  Brought the Lensbaby along, because I like how it gives that kind of “melting-in-the-heat” feeling.

I’m not sure whether to consider this 100 day marker a milestone or not?  Not quite one-third of the way there, but kind of an interesting feeling to know that I’ve managed to get this far – riding 100 of the past 106 days.  Also pretty thrilled that my legs haven’t fallen off (yet)!

I actually think before the whole #30daysofbiking (and subsequent #330daysofbiking) began, I was riding  nearly every day anyway – just never kept track, and probably avoided some of the bad weather/rainy days, I will admit.  But now, after being out in heat, rain, thunderstorms, darkness – I guess I feel a bit more capable, and confident.  Mentally, I like that I have seemed to eliminate the excuse-making element; I’m going out, no matter what.

So … Day 100 pictures with that melted-popsicle feeling that the Lensbaby is so good at – just the usual: cows, barns, fencelines.  You know by now.  After 100 days, some things just don’t change, do they?  😉

    Congrats Pal….I knew you could do it! And, the sign is wonderful. I just looked back at the beginning of your 100 (and counting) days and at that time you were just back from Steamboat, and spring was just starting. Think cool thoughts.

      Ah, LP … thank you. The sign kind of made me laugh. Figuring I have a ways to go to catch up with your MIL’s cycling life (I still think of that – often), and Dennis. Staying cool there? Talk soon – C

      Oh, and I think there is a cryptic message with the REDs in your photos… gate, cow tags, reflector, barn, church sign, ?.. I just can’t piece it all together. I need another clue.
