2013 in review. And here I thought no one was reading this.
2013 was an amazing year! Let me break it down:
Strava reports the following, but does not include the following rides where I:
• did not think a Garmin was worth turning on.
• forgot said Garmin.
• forgot to charge the Garmin.
• forgot to upload the Garmin files to Strava.
What was reported:
I logged 5,391.9 miles, which is the distance between Free State and Bakhtiyarpur, if you were wondering.
I spent over 341 hours in the saddle. That’s 14.2 days, or 8.5 40-hour work weeks.
What else happened on the bike:
I raced in El Salvador in my first international UCI race.
I won points towards the sprinters Jersey.
In the US:
I trained a lot. I raced a lot.
I lapped the field for the first time in a crit.
I won some races, had a lot of 2nd and 3rds, and some other placings.
I received support from some amazing generous people who made the above all possible. Without their support none of this would have been possible. I cannot say thank you enough.
Off the bike:
I started working for myself 100% as a freelance Graphic Designer!
I said YES. To what? You will have to ask me personally to find out.
I wrote a few blog posts about the year that stopped before the season was over. ( I am sorry) I was not sure anyone was reading, but below proves me wrong. I promise to be better in 2014.
Speaking of 2014, I have some big goals, I just hope I can find a team to help me achieve them! Here’s to looking ahead.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,000 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 33 trips to carry that many people.
