I'm running out of time!

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Pedal to the Point ought to be *hilarious* this year. After breaking my foot and having a disastrous ride, I got sick. And Friday I leave for 10 days of vacation. Which means that I will not be around to make appeals for donations and, more importantly, won't be able to do any training.

We get back on the Wednesday before the ride.

Also, Erin has decided that she simply can't do it this year, so I will be riding with my team but without a buddy.

Nevertheless, I am determined to do it. I am determined to finish the whole thing. Oh, I will tell myself that I only need to ride to lunch, then only need to finish the first day, then only need to ride to lunch on the second. But in my heart of hearts, I will be trying to make the whole ride.

So I'm asking, please PLEASE donate to this cause. I'm way behind on where I need to be, donations-wise, and I will not have many opportunities to ask. So even if it's only $5, please give. Help me feel like I'm doing this as a real accomplishment.

    I play those tricks too. I tell myself that once I get to point A I can decide if I want to continue. Once I get to Point A, I manage to talk myself into getting to point B. And so it goes.

    hilarious clearly has different values in your house. But the point is to get out there and DO SOMETHING yes?

    I feel ya - the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Cycle for Life is August 24th. Today's my 4-week check-up, and I'm hopeful I get cleared to return cycling. But I haven't been on a bike in 4 weeks. Even if my legs are up for a ride, my contact patch is going to need to ease back in.

    I clearly won't be able to ride the 65-mile route this year. I do a lot of my fundraising through work, and I haven't been there for four weeks. I have no idea if the people who were on my team last year signed up for this year's ride.

    But it's only one year. Next year will be better!
