Celebrating Imagination and the Wonderful, Wild Ride that is Life

Thursday, April 1, 2010

Here we go again!

It's hard to believe but the year has flown by fast. We have been blessed by an early spring (keeping fingers crossed behind my back) and unseasonably warm temperatures. Winter cleared itself up earlier than usual. The snow melted leaving pot holes in its wake and mounds of grit that the street sweepers have already begun removing. Happy, happy sunshine! Of course I've celebrated by getting back on my bike a few times. 20 to 25 miles has not been that hard. I haven't been able to be consistent since I've been very busy, but pretty soon there will be no excuse. Busy or not, the training has got to begin!!!! Why, you ask?

That's right! Brad and I have signed up to do the Tour de Pink again this year! I have to be more specific since there are more Tour de Pinks now: on the West Coast, in Atlanta, Chicago, Indianapolis and (what's this?) in a little place called Duluth, MN! You heard me. We aren't just in training and raising money for our ride in the East Coast Tour de Pink from Hershey, PA to New York City, we are also hosting our very own one day Tour de Pink ride to benefit our Young Survival Coalition Affiliate on September 11th! It's going to be busy, but it's also going to be a lot of FUN!

As for the big Tour, we have yet to set up our fundraising pages, send out letters, or do any of that official Tour stuff. But we have managed to ride a little. Surprisingly in many ways it feels like we never stopped. Granted, I rode a little on the bike trainer this winter, but nothing compares to saddling up and taking her out on the road. What's really exciting is Brad and I won't be alone this year. There's a whole team of YSC Duluth riders coming with us. It's going to be a blast! Stick around as the craziness ensues! (Or better yet, why don't you join us? Just visit )

But for now, enjoy the birth of Spring!
