I may be a kind of old, kind of fat gamer, but I do try to look after my health. Since my taste in food is pretty unhealthy, I tend to focus on exercise (and portion control). Mostly, I run, ride my bike and lift weights. I sometimes swim when my shoulder holds together. I also try to help my kids practice whatever sport they’re playing at the time. I just hit a milestone on my bike that I wanted to share. I just passed 5,000 miles on my bike. For some people that might not be a lot, for me, riding on weekends and free days, it’s an accomplishment I’m pretty proud of.
How far is 5,000 miles? Well, I live near Houston. I looked it up on this nifty page. Madrid, Spain, Casablanca, Morocco and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil are all around 5,000 miles from Houston. With my next ride, I zipped past Paris, France. I’m not much of a fitness role model, but I do know this: find exercises you enjoy and stick with them. Perhaps I’ll see you when I hit Switzerland. I’m not looking forward to the mountains.
