My brother-in-law (Big Sis’ husband) is always up for a challenge. The challenge for this month is Sacramento’s Annual Million Mile May. This year more than 4,600 cyclists have joined the event and had logged a record collective 821,000 miles (as of Wednesday) in pursuit of the elusive million-mile mark. Their deadline is tonight.
Not only is my brother-in-law, Carlos, contributing to the collective miles, he is also actively competing for first place. Big Sis emailed to say, “Apparently his competition is 3 hours ahead of him after his commute to/from work, his lunch hour ride and his spin class tonight. So he plans to spin in the garage tonight to catch up.”
Please join me in offering encouragement to the Sacramento residents on this year’s attempt to hit 1 million AND to Carlos in his quest for first.
Update: Carlos spun right up to the end of the day. He gave it a good go and placed 4th overall. He should be proud of the fact that his dedication to cycling for fitness as well as transportation won’t end in May. For him, it is a lifestyle.em>
