Moment of 2th

2th? As in 2thousand-and-seven:


I’m not sure why I’m going all Zoolander with my lips or what button I pushed on the cam for the image to come out all black-and-white, but there it is and I am: pedaling the first few feet past the intersection of Cota and Ocean Drive in Culver City at 8:49 a.m. this morning, putting my 2007th mile behind me and moving on.

New goal for the rest of the year? I’m gonna mull it over for a bit. I’m torn between just totaling up whatever comes and thinking 2,500 is doable, But then I’m as I’m also keeping closer tabs on my calories I’m thinking of biking to work until I get down to 195 pounds or the new year, whichever comes first. If I go that crazy I could be looking at 75-100 mile weeks, which has the potential to put 3,000 in reach by the time the year draws to its close.

Like I said, I’m gonna mull. I’m even gonna drive in to work tomorrow as says there’s a 60% chance of rain in L.A. Friday. But in the meantime thanks for putting up with this fixation of mine these past few posts. It might not be the most interesting thing in the world, but it’s  kind of a big deal to reach something I’ve been striving for these past nine months.

Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
