So very close...

I sent my bike to LA on Monday, rode the mountain bike the rest of the week. It was a moment of reckoning, sending my bike--no turning back now!

Today The Husband gave me a going away party--it was quite cool... people from work, running club, old friends and new friends, neighbors, childhood schoolmates, and relatives all showed up... they even came bearing unexpected gifts--bottles of wine, chamois butt'r, gu, a trip journal, and lots of desserts. I talked so much my throat hurts! I don't think I shut up for three hours!

Everyone signed a big card that my daughters made. A very cool day.

I still have a very long list of things to do; I'll get there... I'll make a new list tomorrow, since I am done for this day.

Sorry I missed your party. (My wife was in the hospital.) I still wanted to wish you a great trip!

Keep blogging your progress, I am so jealous.

May the wind be always at your back, the warm (not hot) sun shine before you and many new friends ride beside you.

Hey Linda! Rich and I sent our bikes on Tuesday. It was kind of hard to see them go because we have spent some real quality time together. I am looking forward to seeing them in LA. Have a safe trip to California and until registration...
