100 days till my Freedom Challenge start, then it's 75, 50, 25 and then it will be Pietermaritzburg in the gloom of winter and the first pedal strokes of a long journey.
100 days is a reminder to stay in the present and not squander time.
100 days is five times as long as I hope to ride.
100 days is a whole change in season.
100 days is a big chunk of 2009 gone.
100 days is a countdown to an absolute deadline and missed opportunities don't come round again.
