I would bike 10000 miles

I think that’s how the song goes?

Honestly though, I wouldn’t.  But my dad did, in the past 12 months.


Here he is, returned from his 10,000th mile for the year.

Last fall he biked from my hometown (and his home) in Clinton, South Carolina to Phoenix, Arizona, with a side trip to St Louis, Missouri.  Since then he’s been continuing to bike, day trips, weekend trips and longer.  Once he realized he could hit 10,000 miles for the year he made that a goal.  I asked if he would be trying for another 10,000 this year and he said no.

That’s my dad.  I don’t think he’s trying to be an inspiration to anyone, but look.  He’s 65 years old.  What’s your excuse?  I’m going to go for a run now.
