OK, enough theology for awhile. It's been interesting and it's made me think and re-evaluate and re-firm and confirm what I believe.

But now let's talk about the bike.

Specifically about this Monster Hill near the end of my bike commute.

I've ridden it a few times, walked it more. But today...

I not only rode the hill, I rode it in my MIDDLE chainring!! Not my small one! My lowest rear gear, yeah, but NOT my little bitty granny chainring.

This has been my goal for the whole winter: to ride that hill not in my granny gear. I only half-expected to do it by the end of the winter. And here I've done it not even halfway through January.

Guess my next goal will be to click up that rear gear one notch.

SavageMan is 8-1/2 months away....

Where did you take/get that photo?
When is/was Austin?
Miss you. But I cannot keep up - lists, life, anything.

I hope I'll be "back". Gotta dig myself out first.
