Question of the Day: What’s the best thing that happened to you this year?

2011 is almost over. My body is not even ready. Is yours? This year has been strange for me, but it’s been good overall. I’ve made some pretty good friends that ride bikes and trimmed the fat, so to speak, of some other people that I didn’t really need in my life. I suppose that is the way that things work. I am okay with this. It just means that 2012 is going to be more awesome.

I suppose the best thing that happened to me was my bike ride back in June. For the last few years, I’ve been doing the SF to LA bike ride. Since the year before was when my lungs died, I didn’t know how I would do on the ride. I didn’t even really train at all. The most I did was spin class at the YMCA, twice a week.

During the ride, there are a lot of hills and I had to stop only once. I just hung out in the middle of the hill with this other cyclist that I knew and we took photos of people’s legs and laughed. Then, I hopped back on my bike and got my arse up the hill. Turns out that I was a lot stronger than I thought I was so that made me happy. I did it! Yay!

Nothing feels better than doing something you thought you couldn’t, even after doctor’s tell you that you shouldn’t. Take that, science!

Did you discover anything new? (Please see the image of Annier’s Hovis above)Did you do anything fun? Did something turn out better than expected? Tell us!
