Time speeds along

Here it is almost February and that means it's ALMOST TIME!!!

I go to Washington, DC on Monday to speak at a big event for Ovarian Cancer. This will be my first outing, my first time speaking publicly about the ride, about being a cancer survivor, about a number of things. Actually, I get two minutes, so I won't get to speak about that much. Just some targeted words about this project.

I just started a facebook group page (Laurey Bikes) - gee, so up to the minute I am! I'm beginning to lose track of what has been updated and what hasn't. (not really.)

In other news, the other day I was talking to my accountant, who is also a bike rider, about the ride and he casually said, "Well, you need a JERSEY!" And yes, that would be a nice thing but I don't have funds to send in that direction so I just let it go. But then I went back to work and walked in and there, in my shop, was the guy who makes our work t-shirts and I was talking with him about t-shirts and he said, "Yes, but what are you wearing when you RIDE?" and I said, "Well, a bike jersey" and he said, "I PRINT bike jerseys!" And I started squealing and that was that. The thing has now been designed and he's off working on it. Tra la! We'll start with ones for me and then might print some for sale. I LOVE this kind of thing.

And, finally, I'm still trying to work out the kinks in my body. Got a sore hip that I'm working on and this week I did stuff every day (spin, gym, pilates, spin, ride) and then yesterday was just too sore and took the night off. Feeling better today. I AM getting stronger, slowly but/and surely.

I'll be in touch.

I am so excited about your trip, I wish I was going! It is amazing all that you are doing with this! I don't have any doubts about your ability to do the ride - you'll be fine. And I am sure that your event in DC will go well also. MC and I have signed up for the Alaska trip in June. Can't wait!
