Some of you may have noticed that I'm working toward the Randonneurs USA R-12 award. Briefly stated, it means I need to complete a RUSA-sanctioned brevet or permanent for 12 consecutive months. The shortest distance is 200km. Every month. Miss a month, start over.

Messing around with motivational posters

"Those must be easy now, huh?". No. They are never easy. Even if one is a professional cyclist, rides of 100+ miles are never easy. What keeps me going is that I know if I keep on going, I will finish, and finish within the time limit. Headwinds and suboptimal weather notwithstanding.

Best to you, on your next cycling challenge!
