528000 Feet

What's the deal you ask? Well, I have to get my not-so-in shape body into good enough shape to ride 100 Miles (5280/mile ... somewhere in middle school we all learned these conversions) by June 5th as part of America's Most Beautiful Bike Ride. Anyway I'm confident I can do it. I'm riding as part of Team in Training on behalf of Reagan Feld who was recently diagnose with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. You could help me help the Leukemia and Lymphomia Society find a cure for blood cancers by visiting my LLS webpage and donating to LLS. It would really be appreciated!

And what pray tell am I riding this race on. Well I'm riding a Trek Navigator 200. Ok so its not the lightest thing on two wheels, but frankly neither am I. The extra pounds on my rear are probably a bigger issue than the extra pounds on my frame. Anyway, when everything is performing as required, its a pretty comfortable and I'm confident I can do 100 miles on it.
