Application has been mailed

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

Hey all!

After months of little to no activity, abandoning all of my good habits, and eating whatever I want, I've managed to put on 17 pounds. Yikes.

I guess I'm totally starting over. Well, not totally, because I'm still under my starting weight. But it feels like starting over.

My big news is that I mailed out my bike ride application today. They mail out like 3500, and accept the first 700. I signed up me and my girl. This will make things far more challenging logistically, but it's a family ride, and it should make it a lot more rewarding, too. I'm sure neither one of us will forget it.

IF my application is accepted. I'm kinda getting ahead of myself. But I'm pretty sure I'm getting in.

Check it out. They accept out of state riders! Who's going?

More later, happy Wednesday!

    That looks like an awesome TREK for you and your girl! Precious "Once in a Lifetime" (great motivational song by the way) opportunity! What a motivation to get back in the saddle! Hoping and pulling for swift and efficient postal carriers! ;) SO hoping that this comes to fruition for you both! YES. emoticon emoticon

    Wow! That looks amazing!!! Should I try and sign on? Hmmmmm. Should I? How would I get my bike there? I'm really wanting to come do this. It sounds like I would have had to start the process a while back ... yes? no? maybe so?

    Excellent. It looks like you've got some training to do!
    I'm afraid I can't join you in Michigan for the ride, but I will be in Wisconsin visiting relatives in July :-)
    Best wishes on your health and wellness journey,
