I took a look at  my yearly goals..

2012 2014 2015
Run 2 miles without stopping.
Run 5 miles without stopping.
Sign up and compete in a 5K/10K or something similar.
Bike 50 miles in a single day.
Bike 100 miles in a single day.
Bike to City Island, NY, from home.
Become a semi-regular bicycle commuter.

Kind of depressing. So let’s do this.


Pack It In

I’ve moved. Pack Your Bags and join me. I won’t be updating this any more. Thanks for your support!

I’m getting married in less than a month. Weight loss and food and working out is not far from my mind. Nor is this blog. My motivations have changed quite a bit, and I’m thinking of moving from this blog to something else. I peaked what, a year and a half ago? I was doing blogging and twittering, and everyday posts. Not much going on now. However, I’m still reading everybody’s content.

So, I may change from Going For 96. I’m pretty sure somewhere in the About section I said I wouldn’t. However, I think every blog represents a time in life. This blog represents the time during which I realized I have to make changes if I want to see 96 years of age. Mentally I’ve begun making those changes.

For one, I consider myself a bicyclist. I don’t need to record my miles anymore. The miles don’t make me a bicyclist, the riding does.

For two, I know I have a really shit relationship with food. That battle is largely mental, and it’s difficult to convey that into words regularly.

For three. I know there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.

I’m not sure exactly what my plan is. My new existence could be right here, or it might be something brand new. It probably won’t occur for a few months. Until the beginning of August, I’ll either be planning a wedding, attending a wedding, or honeymooning.

To be fair, I will tell you where I go, right here. I’m too damn lazy to hide my content here.

If you’re reading this still, thanks for sticking around.

Edit: I just realized this blog is officially 2 years and 10 days old. Hmm. Interesting. I always say that most blogs survive 1-3 years before flaming out. Maybe it’s true for some blogs..but perhaps we also just need a change. A fresh coat of paint, so to speak. That’s my plan.

The 5AM Guy

Leave a comment

We all know the 5AM guy. It’s not always the muscle head, because the muscle head guy lives to hit the gym. Hits it at prime time because there’s nowhere else he’d rather be.

The 5AM guy, is The Anti Jared, or it can be anyone who decides being fit is important and that means being awake at 5AM.

That’s the guy I’m going to become. Maybe it’ll be after work when I work out, but it’ll be a lot, and it might be at 5AM.

This might take a little bit of time to accomplish, but I’m ready. I’ve already started to get into the frame of mind just by reading the first third of Working Out Sucks. So far, it’s not saying anything I don’t know, but it’s asking the same questions that need asking. If a man with no legs gains the desire and ability to stand up and run…why the fuck can’t I do it at 5AM?

Simple answer; there is no reason.

Thanks Tony, for choosing me to win the book. It’s helped in a few short days already.

I’ll be back.


Bike Stoppage

I popped my back tire, so biking has stopped until I can get it fixed. Well, the flat has been fixed, but the tire is rubbing against the brake system, so I think I need to have the shop look at whether the rim is warped.

#30 Days Of Biking

Leave a comment

Last September I biked more than 350 miles in 30 days. Something tells me I’ll fall a bit short of that this time, but the most important thing is I’m biking 30 days in April, 2011.

I have concern about just one day near the end, but I’ll figure it out. I’ll get my biking in, some way.

So that’s about it, until I post tomorrow’s photo.

Two voters has spoken. Right now, the blender is winning. Will this be the winner?

I’ll choose by Friday!
