Still trying to reach my fundraising goal, so next paragraph is cut from yesterdays post:
I’m getting closer to my goal for the Livestrong Challenge. I’ve sent out some follow-up support letters, but if you would like to help contribute to the LAF, and help me reach my goal of $2500 for this event, you can click here, or click on the logo to the right. It is for a great organization doing a lot of wonderful work in the area of cancer research and advocacy. Also a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you who’ve been so generous so far..I really appreciate it!
We got our team jerseys on Saturday, so I thought I’d post some pics. This is my first real bike jersey, as the current one I use is really a tennis jersey because it was $12 at the Adidas outlet. The only thing that my fake jesery is missing is the stowaway pocket in the back that real ones have. Most bike jerseys run from $60 to $90 in bike shops and I just can’t seem to bring myself to forking that over for them. These team jerseys were discounted for us and *only* cost $40, so I figured it was a decent time to step up and buy one.
I’ve been eating less the past few days and it’s helping a little in the gutteral department, as I was worried about the jersey huggin’ the gut a little too much. However, as it turns out, the current forecast is for 100% chance of rain, and winds at 18mph….good gosh oh golly. Guess I don’t have to worry about the jersey gut huggin’ too much since it’s going to be burried underneath a rain coat for the whole day.
5+ hours, on a bike, in the rain and wind. This has got to be some kind of joke…right?
