      I did not and will not hit my mileage goal for the year. Anyone want to console me?

           I think I need to give this listening to my body thing I've heard about around here a try.

                Congrats on hitting mileage. I will fall well short of my goal this year, with various ailments first half of the year. Lowest mileage in 3yrs, but should hit about 2300 or so. Goal is to hit 3000 miles next year.
