I'm late. Over a week late. I said I wanted to hit 10,000 miles this year and should have 1/2 of that by the end of June. As the warmer weather of summer approached, I started wimping out around the end of June after having a couple brutal hot century rides. So, I missed the mark, and last week, I had two super-hot back-to-back rides (66 and 117 miles) and REALLY felt the aftermath. This week, it's been just short easy rides around town. When I went to write the miles down on my chart …
… a quick mental calculation caught my eye and required a double-check with the calculator. Sure enough, after wobbling all over town today …
… first to the Public Market, then out with Karen for a bit, then a bit more after lunch, I hit my mark: 5000 miles. Plus One. Cool!
And a Bonus! Meandering around Highland Park, I stumbled upon a Rochester landmark that I have never seen, and only heard about: Warner Castle, an 1854 replica of a Scottish castle. In fact, it's now the home of the Landmark Society.
In the back is a sunken garden that again, I've only heard about but never seen.
It pays to wander aimlessly.
