Observation: One of the challenges of doing every linear mile is being diligent to the area you are covering. Yes, some days I start off thinking I am going to do 20-25 miles, get absorbed in an unexpected building filled with art and that day only becomes 10-15 miles. Sometimes the reverse will happen in that I will head out to do 20 miles, find the area to not have much art (or I have a ton of energy) and I end up tagging 10-20 more. But what is really hard is seeing something amazing not in the plan and wandering off the path chosen for that day. Today was one of those times in that I saw this amazing Catholic school a block away as I was finishing up the ride. I went to check it out and then just got sucked in by it’s decaying beauty, taking picture after picture. But then I came to my senses…and I aborted. I realized I needed more time and doing this today would only put a “hole” in another day’s ride. Have faith in the process and you will see it all.
