Anticipation


Reach the Beach is this Saturday. Today is Thursday. I am so excited!

Reach the Beach

After months of training, flat tires, bike crashes, sore butts, sore bodies, one sunburn, and fund-raising….the ride is almost here!

This is where we will be sometime Saturday evening:

Haystack Rock

Feet sunk into the sand, bodies tired but happy, and stomachs full of food. YAY! The weather is predicted to be sunny and 75 degrees. I couldn’t be happier!

In preparation of the ride, I will not be exercising today or tomorrow. I got a massage last night to loosen up my legs. Tomorrow night I will clean my bike and pack my GUs.

During lunch today I took a slow stroll to Northwest Portland to get some new biking gloves. It’s absolutely gorgeous outside and HOT. I walked by Powell’s Books.

And Deschutes Brewery Pub:

I Want Beer

I wonder why Portland is named the #2 Biking City in America?

Typical Downtown Corner

I made it to REI in Northwest to do some shopping.

After trying on a bunch of different brands, I settled on this:

Padded Cycling Gloves

I’ve never heard of this brand but they felt good and had decent padding. They were $25. More expensive than I’d planned to spend, but we’re down to the wire now. I headed back to the office.

SUNSHINE!
