Work commitments have kept me from riding any serious distances the past three weeks, but today I finally got back to it. Only 50 miles today, but I managed to keep up a pretty aggressive speed–and in the hours since, crippling leg cramps have brought me to my knees every hour or so. Lessons: 1) stretch first; 2) keep at it.
Speaking of keeping at it, I’ve got to get back to raising money for these great organizations and their important, life-sustaining work. That is the point, right? Have you signed on?
