Two more milestones reached

There’s this big hill on a nearby street that I’ve attempted few times on my bike, but prior to today I had always had to get off the bike and walk up the hill–it was too long and too steep.  Today I did it.  It’s been a month or more since I last tried it, but today I owned it.  Which is to say that I was still alive and breathing when I reached the top–I broke no speed records.  Nonetheless, it is another sign that I’m making real progress in this whole biking thing, that my legs are getting stronger, and that I’m actually becoming more physically fit.  I like that.

The other milestone I reached today is the 250-pound mark.  I have now lost 53 pounds since I began this journey, and I feel very good about that, too.

  1. The hill on Kasold, between Clinton Parkway and 15th. Your mom does it almost every day, but I’ve never been able to make it all the way without walking until yesterday!
