  1. I’ve been reading and trying to catch up Ben on all the great discussions that have taken place on your blog. Love the BenBlog- It’s what I need at this point. Glad you’re riding. I put in 45 miles today, but mostly on windy rollers over the dunes of Lake Michigan. Milestones for me: 21 years teaching L2, 12th year TPRSing, second year in a row to pass my goal of 5000 miles on the road bike.

  2. Mark I knew you were there riding and TPRSing away and so am very happy to hear from you. 5000+ miles two years in a row is a lot of miles dude. If my math is right, that is 10,000 miles in about a 16 month period. Right on. I know Ben Lev and Bryce will respect those numbers. And 21 years in the classroom. Where else can we stop and think about that and celebrate it? I went up to someone at a Kroger in Myrtle Beach – it was a great and super restful time down there and the water was perfect and the waves were rolling and handsome – and told them that I had been teaching a really long time but they didn’t smile or shake my hand. Just kidding. Point made, though, right? We need to celebrate what each other is doing because nobody else thinks it requires much effort, apparently. Who else will celebrate how we drag our tired asses out of bed each day and go do it again? It almost seems like some kind of spiritual training program or something. I once heard the definition of a saint as someone who doesn’t do what they want to do and does what they don’t want to do. That may be us! Anyway, my road warrior brother (I did 50 today with only one bottle and no breakfast in Roxborough State Park and that means going up) and my TPRS brother – congratulations on work well done!
