$5370 raised, 33 sponsors, 55 letters sent out, 22 blog entries, over 900 miles ridden already, 216 flat hot & windy miles in western NY, 93 muggy miles the next week and 0 miles last week. 4 days left to train, all numbers, just numbers. Some significant numbers some not so much.
I peddle with out much else than numbers to keep my going; miles to go, miles per hour, heart rate, tire pressure, peddle rate, SPF and so on.
The significance of my daily training numbers are somewhat meaningless except for assessing my level of comfort in facing 190 miles in 2 days with over 5000 riders and 3000 volunteers all together to raise 30 million dollars all of which goes to fighting cancer.
$30,000,000, now that is a number of true meaning.
thank you to my latest sponsors, Teddy, Leslie, Zifrie, Carol, Linda, Deirdre, Nancy, Cathy&Jack, Sarah&Scott, Maryanne and Kate
