Life Without Lupus - Wheels for a Life without Lupus

Sunday, October 26, 2008

Geared back up all week for the next 3 week push into more miles, more hours and a stronger push for greater power. As I'm learning, a 24-hour ride to break a record will require as much deep power reserve as miles in the saddle. After 4 days of easy spinning, Saturday and Sunday were crank ups to reset the mark. Also, Sunday, was a chance to take education about Lupus to New York City's Central Park during its Pumpkin Fest. Amongst 20,000+ pumpkins, tens of thousands of kids and families, the Life without Lupus volunteers talked about the disease and handed out thousands of orange bracelets along with buckets of chocolate candy. And, we were able to shoot a few bike action scenes on video, and we're hoping to post those soon.

Looking forward to seeing those videos. How do you do it? Your fitness drive in the past has inspired me to stay in shape. Now I should be training for the Iron Man or something. You are amazing.....Allie is always in my prayers.

thanks for the good wishes, maria. it's a long ride, but knowing supporters like you are out there behind me makes those early mornings and long rides much easier.
