I addition to writing, my day job in the Navy, keeping my better half happy, and raising my kids, I’m training for a Century Ride. What’s a Century Ride? Well, as the name implies, it’s a 100 mile bicycle race. I’m training for America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride, 100 miles around Lake Tahoe, on June 5th.
A few years back, I ran a couple marathons with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training, to raise money for research into the cures for blood cancers. I’ve been off the long distance wagon for a while, but over the last year or so I’ve been biking a lot more, so I decided to join the Team again, this time on my bicycle.
I’m riding in honor of my Aunt’s late husband, Joseph, as well as all the victims of these diseases. I know it’s a lot to ask in these tough times, but I’ve put a link in my sidebar to my fundraising page. If any of you folks out there in blogland read this and decide you’d like to help, please follow the link and drop some $.
We now return to our regular programming, already in progress.
