This morning I biked more than I have in years - 17 miles! It felt great. It was a timed practice. We met in Central Park at 8am, and were told to cycle for 1:15. I made it twice around the full park loop (6.02 miles) and once cutting across at 102nd St. (about 5 miles, without all those big hills at the top of the park!). It was great. I rode more or less with Kari, a girl in my mentor group. I love clipless pedals! It's amazing how much more power you can get from your legs when you have full range of motion - i.e., the upward, forward, and backward pulls actually help, not just downward motion. I also love hills, I think they're going to be a strength for me once I've built up my quads.

Too funny, Nicole is also signed up with Team in Training to do a triathlon. Don't they provide you with a site where we can donate in your name?

If ONLY there was an online donation form. Unfortunately the NYC chapter doesn't have one yet! They have been very apologetic about it. I looked into using PayPal, but their fees make it not really worthwhile.

So, you'll have to use snail mail for now. I'd love to sponsor Nicole - send me donor info!
