Goal Setting

I've heard that a person is much more likely to achieve a goal if it is written down. Therefore, I am not only writing this goal down, I am posting it here so that all the world may make fun of me if I fail to achieve it.

A bit of background: after a few years of concentrated effort to avoid exercise, I decided that I should work on getting into shape. So, I decided to start biking to work. That ride was difficult at first, but it's becoming easier now that I'm starting to get into shape.

But, I've decided I need to do more, so I should set a (literally) higher goal:

On Labor Day, I will climb Mount Soledad on my bike, or die trying.

The bookies in Vegas have installed "die trying" as a 3:1 favorite.

Comments:

Just remember, that's "on" your bike, not "with" your bike. If you don't make it, we expect you to die in the saddle, not next to the bike.

Best wishes. ;-)

Excellent! I'll try to be there if we're in town that weekend.
