    ... I would have laughed at anyone telling me i can do 100 k on a bike. I would have laughed at anyone telling me I could run for an hour, or do that after a spin class.

    I like my "new life" because I can surpass myself over and over....

    You said it, alpine rabbit! My experience is similarly sweet. If you're willing to work for it, you can have it.

    as said elsewhere: if you can do 60 at 25 kph, you can do 100.

    Sounds like it's been one amazing year for both of us! And I have to say that I think everyone on this board has had a hand in it! The positive energy around here is wonderful!
    Good job!

    You've come a long way baby! (ain't it funny just how fitting that line is and yet - it was for a cigarette ad?! LOL)
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming: "Yeah Baby! What a Ride!"

    oooh, "Imperial century"! I love how that sounds. The riders should be crowned at the end, eh? That's my riding goal for this year. (The 100 miles, not so much the crowning. Not that I'd object to a tasteful little tiara... )
