The point of our OktoberFast event this month was to try to use the month to push ourselves to go further in our efforts than we have gone before. Patrick from The Road designed our banner, but more importantly, had an AWESOME month with some big races and an awesome first place finish. Click the link above and check out his great month!
I definitely will have ridden more miles than in any previous month, but did not meet my specific goals. I intended to lose weight, but really did not work at it much at all. I also intended to run 30 miles, but did not do that much either (only 7 miles). Instead, I guess I focused my efforts on cycling. My goal was 200 miles and I have ridden 132 miles as of this morning. I will ride again today, after church. I'll update later in the day. But this means that I will have ridden more miles this month than I ever have before in a month, so I'm happy about that. And eager to do even more going forward. I'll hit 200 cycling miles in November.
UPDATE: Samson and I went out this afternoon and got 26.5 miles in! Add to that some neighborhood miles to Tig's house for a quick wheel adjustment and I did 29 miles today. That makes for a month-long total of 161...an all-time high for me and I am pleased with it.
How did you do in OKTOBERFAST?
Okay...maybe this isn't the scariest video ever, but it is gets super freaky at 1:15. Play with the sound on. Happy Halloween!
