My Sister Lost 150+ Lbs

Friday, May 22, 2009

I'm out in CA visiting with my sister and I knew she lost a lot of weight but I was shocked to hear how much--over 150 lbs. She looks and feels great, though she has some serious health problems due to years of being overweight. But she's really turned the boat around and I'm so proud of and inspired by her.

And I'm so glad to be hanging out with someone who eats well so I can stay on track myself!

  


Fell Short but Still did 82 Miles

Thursday, May 21, 2009

Well, I tried to ride for 106 miles in the desert heat yesterday (100+ air temps and much hotter on the asphalt) but I wasn't able to do it. However, I did make it 82 miles which included three trips up the 5-mile climb that is Highway 74--coming down at 50+ was sure fun!

So, I fell short but I'm a happy camper!

  


106 Mile Bike Ride Today

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

I was going to abort my mission of riding for 106 miles today, because it's quite hot out here in Palm Springs, CA, but I decided to leave camp (Marriot!) at 6 a.m. and give it my best shot. I think I can do it, we'll see...

Let you know tomorrow how it goes!

  


Too hot for a long ride, but not for a short one!

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

I'm out in Palm Springs CA and boy is it hot! Over 100, 40 degrees hotter than Minnesota when I left. I was going to take a 110 mile bike ride tomorrow but I'm afraid I will not be able to hold up in the direct sun for that long so I'm going to abort the mission! Instead, I'm going to find a 20-30 mile loop and ride that again and again until I can't do it anymore. This way I'll still get to ride but I won't get stuck in the middle of nowhere with heat stroke!

  


Back to Cali Today

Monday, May 18, 2009

I'm from Cali but living in MN these days. I'm going back to officiate a wedding for my nephew and I'm excited to see my homeland again. I plan to do a 110 mile bike ride Wednesday and some mountain climbing. I can't wait!

But I miss my fam already! :(
