In the last week of the Great Cycle Challenge and have surpassed all my goals for the month of June.

I have raised $725.88 of my $500.00 goal for childhood cancer research. I have also blasted through my mileage goals. My first goal was 150 miles, then 175 miles, then 200 miles. I am currently sitting at 200.9 miles. I have increased my total miles to 235 for the month. This should be able to be met as long as the weather cooperates.

I have commuted to/from work every day this month. Some days I don't want to stop and lock my bike up. I just want to keep pedaling.

This fall, my main bike will be treated to an over-haul at my local bike shop. So many miles put on this year, 314 miles since April. It will be well deserved for the bike and have it ready to go again for next year.

On a more personal note, with all this biking I have lost 15 pounds so far. I noticed that my arms and legs are skinnier as well as my stomach. I am fitting into pants and shorts that I have not been able to fit in for a few years, which is good news.

If you see me on the trails just try to keep up :P
