Lackluster Start To May

After such a crazy end to April you'd think that we would roll into May with that momentum and the antics would continue. You would think that, but unfortunately you'd be wrong. I don't know if it's because we were all wiped out from the 100+ miles in four days or what, but here we are, May 4th and as far as I know, we all got zero riding in since April ended. The weather hasn't been great here, it seems that the April showers missed the memo that it's now May, and they are here to stay. The forecast for this week includes possibilities of showers or thunderstorms everyday except for Wednesday. So either I'm going to get my first lesson in riding in the rain, or I'm not going to get much riding in. I'm guessing that I'll have to put up with the rain at some point, so I'm thinking I'll get out there and bear the weather at least one day this week. Any tips on cycling in the rain would be helpful. I'm assuming that the most important thing would be to properly dress for the occasion, so I'm going to have to scrape up a rain slicker somewhere. Should be interesting.

On a more positive note, fundraising is going great. A big Thank You to those who have already donated and sent along their well wishes. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it and I'm humbled by how so many people are banding together to help this important cause. Team Fat Cyclist, the team that my brothers, Todd and I will be riding for, continues to dominate all four LIVESTRONG challenges. With still 110 days to go to the challenge we have raised over $166,500.00 to support cancer research and survivorship, making Team Fatty the number one fundraiser so far. Sometimes it's hard to recognize how much of an impact an individual effort produces, so it's really positive and enlightening to see how all these "little" individual efforts converge to produce a big impact. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! I couldn't do this without your support.
