65-mile bike ride, here I come!

It's just days now until the American Lung Association's 2 Rock Breathe Easy 65-mile bike ride.  I haven't been able to get in nearly as many or as long of training rides as I did last year, and fundraising has been a lot more challenging.  Take yesterday, for example, I was planning a nice 45 mile ride in Hecker Pass wine country - but it poured rain most of the day!  This isn't why I moved to California!  Well, I guess we can't always have perfect weather :-)
 
Rode my bike into work today, for probably the last time before the big event on May 27. I hope to get one more mountain bike ride in tomorrow, then I'll be resting up.  I'll have to have a word with my cat about letting me actually sleep through the night! (really, I \*don't\* need my armpit kneaded at 4AM!)

Wish me luck, and if you can, sponsor me!

All money raised is tax deductible & goes to fund research for lung cancer, emphysema and asthma - 3 lung diseases that very intimiately affect my family.

In addition to all this training, I managed to squeeze in an audition for Saratoga Drama Group's season auditions last night. I screwed up my song a bit, but turned it around  at the end.  When I finished singing, I was asked if I could tap dance. I replied, "No, but I can fake it - I smile so big you won't know what my feet are doing!"  Well, I got a call back to the tap dance auditions. Ummmm... now, can I learn to tap dance in just a few hours?  we'll see.... ;-)

If you went for a 65mile ride on the wrong day here in China, I'm sure the inside lining of your lungs would end up a different colour to that it would have been without it.

Good luck on the ride and hope it goes well for you.
