Entry: Another Passion Intrudes Friday, June 23, 2006

So, the brewing has temporarily been put on hold as I take some time to pursue another passion of mine, cycling. I have spent the last several months training in order to be ready for the Seattle to Portland Bicycle Ride. I am now within 80 miles of 1000 training miles for the year (starting January 1st) and after 4 weeks off the bike due to tearing my achilles tendon feel competent I can finish the ride. I've got a couple more weeks to go of training, and the weather around here is just starting to cooperate.

The farthest I have ever gone in a day is 70 miles, and the first day of STP I will attempt 130. This will make the second day around 80.

On another note, a fantastic group of diabetics just won the Race Across America 8 person team division. This is an incredibly greuling race from Oceanside CA to Oceanside NJ. Oh, and they do it in less than two weeks. Check out the info, it's very interesting.

That's all for now,
