Thank you for reading my blog this past year. I hope you continue to follow my blog in 2010.
I hope you all had a great year like I did in 2009. I had more ups than downs and made a lot of new friends, lost some friends (it is what it is), and continued expanding existing friendships. I realized toward the end of the year that I don't have much to complain about (finally!). 2010 will bring new and exciting challenges plus twists and turns that may open up a new chapter in my life.
As for cycling I reached my goal of 3500 miles this year, finishing with 3510. My goal for 2010 is 4000 miles. We will be continuing with some of our theme rides next year, like Night of a Thousand Tacos, and of course, Bike the C-Bus will be back for 2010. Our goal is to get 500 cyclists out on the route.
Hope to see you out on the bike. As my friend Crow says, "keep the rubber side down."
Pretty and Strong enters its 7th year as a special edition and we are pleased to continue our strong relationship with the Oregon and SW Washington affiliate of Komen for the Cure. For 2010 we are excited to present a calendar benefiting Komen for the Cure in partnership with the talented photographers of PDXCross.com. Our shared effort with this calendar is more than an intimate look at the joy and tenacity of the women we see racing cyclocross each weekend during the fall. It's a call to awareness for early detection because breast cancer still doesn't care how fit or fast you are on a bike. Please make an appointment to see your doctor and circle the date on one of these great calendars.
Our sincere thanks to PDXCross, The Oregon and SW Washington Affiliate of Komen for the Cure, and to all the women who race & ring cowbells with us each weekend.
