Cycling Again To Fight Cancer
I’m thrilled (and, okay, a bit nervous) to say that I will once again be training to ride the Solvang Century — a 100-mile cycling event — with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training (TNT)! The Century will take place on March 9, 2013, and I have committed to raising at least $2,250 by then. These funds will go to help blood-cancer patients — finding cures, improving treatments — and also to their families, offering much-needed support.
Each week, on this blog, I will post a map and stats from my latest training ride, uploaded from my cool little GPS device. So you can keep track of my progress — even including such minutiae as my heart rate and pedaling cadence from moment to moment!
I would be so grateful for any donation that you might be able to make!! You can donate by clicking here to get to my TNT fundraising page.
In my first TNT ride, this past March, I raised way more than I’d originally asked for — and I cannot tell you how moved and gratified I was! It’s so incredibly tough to fight cancer, and your contributions did so much to improve the quality of life for so many cancer patients and their loved ones. I’m hoping to do even better this time!!
Below — if I have successfully navigated through the murky swamps of http coding — are the maps and stats for the few training rides that I’ve already done this season. (If you click on any of the maps, you’ll be shown all sorts of details about that ride.)

Thanks for reading this, and be well!!
