I Made it!!

I finally did it!! 200+ kms over 2 days! Feeling pretty good although this afternoon I was feeling as though  good nana nap wouldn't have gone astray!
The ride was good but a huge challenge for my fear factors! I've never ridden on the roads before and all this ride was on roads and among fairly heavy traffic.  Going downhill was the scariest. I had my brakes on all the way which felt a bit 'whoosieish' but I felt somewhat safer as speed, traffic and narrow roads was not the best combination.
Having said that- the feeling of community and team togetherness was fabulous.  The team raised over $60,000 for cancer research- a fantastic effort.  A truly memorable experience and one that I will NEVER repeat!!!

A Wizard Greeting for anyone???

Take a look at my son's blog.  He does Wizard parties when he's not studying!  There's a video clip which gives an example of a message he can send.  It's fun to watch!  Yeah- this is a free plug for him- but why not- that's what mums are for! And I'm proud of all that he's done and achieving.

Bad Blogger!!

I'm such a bad blogger! It's been almost 2 months since I wrote anything on here.  I fear that facebook is taking over!
Bike ride is the weekend after this one.  Yikes!  I feel so unprepared but then I think I would always feel unprepared!  I've had a change of bikes which I think will be a good thing- but I'm a bit worried that none of my bikes look like a 'road bike'- more like 'granny's tootling around the lanes' type of bike.  Oh well...... I can always get off and walk if I need to!
My very good friend is now trying to talk ( brainwash ) me into a triathlon in January.  It's a very easy one (Pink Breast awareness or something like that) The swimming is the part I freak out about.  The shortest of the courses is only a 100m swim in a pool and apparently any stroke will do.  However when you struggle to breathe- 100m is a very long way!
