Another Friday Not Worked

Due to the MS ride on Saturday, we decided to take Friday off, slowly make our way upstate, stop off by our Upstate Mom-n-Dad's house, swing by the park, hopefully register early, then set up camp for the night. We're most likely going to just "car camp," because it'd be an awful shame to pitch a tent just in time for the thunderstorms, then sleep quasi-damp until the ride in the morning. But that's just us.

We're meeting several folks from work in the camping area, so a good time should be had by all. I'm very excited - my cycling shorts came in today, and I have to give a shout-out to Aero Tech Designs. Not only do they make plus-sized cycling clothes, but I submitted my online order on Sunday, and I received the shorts today. No overnight shipping, just regular old USPS. And the shorts are AWESOME. Joe and I rode about 5 miles tonight, and other than the first few minutes of feeling like...well...like I was wearing a diaper...they totally rock!

Wish us luck - I know we're going to have a blast.

And thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your words of encouragement. Yesterday's post was meant to be more of a what-goes-on-in-my-crazy-mind, but all of your kind and wonderful words mean the world to me. Many thanks to my friends near and far, and a big ol' hug to my Upstate Mom. See you tomorrow - and Saturday night I'll either need an IV or a *LOT* of Bud...
