So long summer...

SquirrelyEvery morning before I hit the shower, I like to sit on our back stoop, drink a cup of coffee, write my to-do list for the day and work on ideas for the blog -- just me and the squirrels. Lately, it's gotten downright chilly out there (and the squirrels are getting fiesty). Then, yesterday I got an email from the Trek Online Store about "Cool Weather Cycling Clothes." Where did summer go? Was it me or did this one fly by all too fast.

So, to say goodbye summer/hello fall, the guys and I are heading out to Shenandoah for our last camping trip of the season. (Plus, the Hill is a little squirrely itself right now.) Anyway, this trip, we plan on driving south and camping along the way. I'll peel off on Tuesday to head back to DC for a meeting on climate change, but the guys are continuing on to Asheville, North Carolina. I hope the bears aren't fiesty too.

On a side note, I want to wish Rhonda, one of our dear Trek WWR friends, good luck tomorrow in the Bike MS: Valero to the Beach Ride from San Antonio to Corpus Christi. A year ago, she was in the hospital and had to get a pacemaker. But she keeps on pedaling and is such an inspiration. (She also owns a very sweet Madone.) So, if you see her team, the P2 Pacemakers, out there, give her a yell from me.   


Thank you Laura for the best wishes! We had a great ride, and raised over $20,000 as a team for MS. I did 65 miles - around 30 each day. That is more than I have ridden in a year. Thank you so much. I appreciate all of your support, and the P2 Pace Makers thank you for the shout out!

My pleasure!! I'm so happy for you and the team - you rocked that ride.

Cheers, Laura
