Well, I am not as virtuous as you guys, since I do like my drink, but 
mid-June marked 3 years since I quite smoking, and September will mark 3 
years since I took up cycling in a serious way. Today, at 51, I am in better 
shape than when I was 35, and later this month I will cycle 700 km around 
Jutland with my best friend from my hometown Aarhus.
