Two For One

This is a dual-purpose post. One, I received my Tour de Cure packet today - the first cycling event I have. Saturday, June 19, 2004. I'm in woeful cardiovascular shape, and I'm in the dreaded ball-of-lard stage from too much work and too much food. Too much of everything but exercise. All fixable, though. (I still lift religiously, of course).

So, what's that - wow, tomorrow that's 3 months. Can I get in good enough shape to do my 100 miler? Of course! So, here I am, begging asking for small donations to support my efforts.

In case you need extra enticement, part two's in the extended entry. Not all of me is lard.


The pic was Brian's idea. This is our convertible in Florida. Members of the New York Coast Guard got a good gander of the photo shoot (which I was almost unhamlike enough to not do).

And a mighty fine idea, too.

Now remember to remind them about the pay site with the rest of the photos.

Donation made. Now get into shape. :-)

Which option are you doing--the century? Half-century? Quarter-century?

The gf and I have a fifteen-mile charity ride in about nine days--Sunday a week. We haven't been on our bikes in months, but at least she's been doing lots of cardio work. Shouldn't be *too* much of a problem...

[picking jaw up off floor with one hand & fumbling for wallet with the other]

um... do we get another shot after the ride if you raise enough money?

Another donation made - even though I had to step over Harvey to do it. Have a great ride!

Planning on the century.
