Topped the 3,000 mile mark for the year yesterday with a loop downtown, Myrtle Edwards Park to the Locks, and then back home via BGT. Tres mil doce. 3012.

This is the view across the Sound at about 2999 miles. Turned the 3K as I departed from Myrtle Edwards and turned up Interbay toward the Locks. To get some perspective, it is about 2850 miles from Seattle to NYC, and about 3070 miles from Seattle to Boston!

New gear for Xmas worked well. Sugoi booties to keep the toes warm and dry, and new Cannondale gloves for the fingers as well.

Looking at the weather report, I may get one more ride in before New Year's, as cold rain and wind is in the forecast for the weekend.

Tough news this week. Tony has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, a type of lung cancer most frequently associated with asbestos poisoning. He's returning home today, and we'll see how the situation progresses. Tough stuff for him, his beautiful family, and all of the rest of us.
