8. Heed Andre's mantra..."Life is GOOD!"
7. Mileage goal of 2011.

2015 mileage goal: 2015, counting both indoor and outdoor. Get back in biking shape and enjoy my carbon Giant Avail. :) Whoo hoo....mileage goal met and passed for 2015! Indoor miles DO count.

2016 goals: 2,016 miles, 124 hours, Tour de Nebraska, enjoy myself.

2016: worst year of my life with losing Russ in a single vehicle motorcycle accident on February 18th. Pretty much stopped riding for the rest of the year. 2017 will be different. I'm once again signed up for the TdN. Russ would want me to get back on the horse. I'm doing it for both of us! Love you Russell. Miss you more.
