Humbling Experience: I continue to receive donations for the Ride to Conquer Cancer. My goal was to raise $5000 and to date I am just over $6000. Still today I want to do all I can to raise funds to provide future research and treatment to those who are undergoing treatment. Just this past weekend two of my team members lost family members battling cancer. This part SUCKS and it only makes me realize that this is about something that matters and is much bigger than me.
Embarrassing Experience: So I am one of those riders who believe that it is safer to rider with another person than to go solo. Sunday I opted to ride the trainer due to poor weather. About an hour into the ride I was sweating it out in my garage and decided to reach for an addition water bottle on the floor and not clip out while doing so. Yes I ended up on the CEMENT floor and as a result I have a nasty green and blue hip BUT my sweet new bike is fine. This was my first question to Scott as he rushed to my rescue... "what about my bike"... :)) Just to make sure my hip was good I changed into my running shoes and went for a short run. All is goooooddd. Scott is still laughing at how a person can wipe out on a trainer.
Strong Experience: While riding with Scott on Monday morning I took a nail in my tire. Long story short... only took 40 minutes to change my tire. True performance tires are very tight and almost impossible to muscle on the rim. I wanted NO help and so it took forever but I DID IT :))
So with this amazing week I am ready to tackle our Thursday night Mountain ride. Bring it!!
