Back to the grindstone!

Back to work. Hopefully I 'll get some news on AllieCat this week. And check out my newly revised website!

Well, I rode TRAM (The Ride Across Minnesota for MS) this past week. I had a blast. In spite of being sick as a dog one day, I got in some of the best riding of my life. A few over a thousand of us raised over a million dollars for MS research and programs for people with MS.
The total ride was nearly 300 miles. Our best ride was Thursday--70 miles of hills and rain and our average speed was 18.5 mph. Exhilirating and so much fun!

Tour de France

Anybody watching the Tour??? I don't have cable, so I only watch when I can. Today at Scheels, to get a small repair done on my front wheel, I got to see the end of the stage. Cavendish is an unbelievable sprinter! How exciting. Watch the Tour if you haven't yet. It's on Versus.
Watch that Team Columbia.

TRAM link


North Dakota was amazing. Many stories. Found the real sheriff's grave, talked to his sister on the phone, talked to people who knew the murdered guy in the main thread of my story, saw places, got town ideas, so much so that I'm sorting more than writing, still.

Next week, I'm takin' a break and riding TRAM...theRideAcrossMinnesota to raise money for MS. I resisted going so I wouldn't miss a week of writing, but I am going to do it anyway. I'll take my notebook and print the pages I've got...and let myself off easy for five days. And come back like gangbusters. I hope.
