Ever since I started seriously riding over 2 years ago I have talked about doing a 100km ride. Well, time to stop talking and start DOING! Before 2010 is out I will have ridden 100kms in 1 day. My PB to date is around 75kms and that was well over a year and a half ago. This weekend just gone I did 42kms. I figure if I add 5-10kms every couple of weeks, I will easily be there by the end of the year.
This Saturday is a ride day and I want to do at least 50kms. I need to go to the Library and then I thought I would visit my Grandma in the Nursing Home. My place, to the library, to Grandma's, to home is a little over 50kms I think. I don't mind if it takes me all day. I just want to rack up those kms. Each day I do a big ride is one step close to the goal of 100.
Yesterday I finished working on my next Children's Picture Book story and was brave and sent it to a publisher. I sent it to the same publisher that did not accept my first one. It is very different to the first one though so I am hoping to get a better response. The first one is currently with my second choice of publishers. But while I am waiting the agonising 4 months to hear back from these places, I will start working on the next one. I have a few in draft form, I just need to work out which one I will work on next.
