So how's it going?

It's going. Sorta just trying to get thru the day's still not sure where to start.
I have been trying to get out to swim bike or run a bit. We are doing a memorial ride for Rich this coming weekend. Every year he did a Fall Century Challenge. Usually it was either 70 miles or about 110. So depends on the weather if we go 70 or 110! As I have said, any day on the bike is a good day, so what is the fuss about rolling into the finish EXACTLY at 100? I mean why worry about a missed turn or a gravel road that didnt show up on the map my ride ? :) Rich is chuckling.

It doesnt matter the distance, but i have been riding a bit more on my road bike to get my Sassy A$$ ready for that distance since my Tri bike is a bit more forgiving. Thinks Fizik Arione versus ISM saddles. Now you get it.

Not sure what next year's Tri/sporting life will bring. For now I am just winging it, and liking the freedom. FEeling like i am running with a bit more speed which is fun, despite being cold at the start of the runs. I do miss the heat.

I leave you with a great picture, it may make you weep, and for that i am sorry. But i love it. It makes me smile when not much else does.

That is a great picture.

"Thinks Fizik Arione versus ISM saddles. Now you get it."

Ummm, no I have no idea what that means. ;)

I don't have too much to say, but you will just have to go day by day. Nothing more nothing less.

You have a ton of friends who will offer a ton of support. It will make it easier. It won't make it easy, but easier.

Guess that is it. :) Have a good Sunday. :)

Love the picture and I'm sure it makes Rich smile as well.

Let me know the route for next weekend when you figure it out and if you come out this way I'll stash some food and drinks at a corner for you.

I can't even imagine how hard all this has been for you. I've been thinking about you. That is indeed a cool picture. :)

And I totally get the fizik vs ism thing... threw my fizik in the trash after the second ride and replaced it with the ism. ;)

I love reading your posts Julia. Happy posts, sad posts, daily grind posts, anything. And that's a really nice picture. Glad that you're out there riding. I went out for a few rides this weekend on my tri bike and my poor rear end is feeling it!
