Well, I am soaked. Or rather, I would be, if I had not stripped down to my underwear the moment I entered my front door.

I'm trying to figure out who I can blame - and where it all started... It might be my brother, who loves to ride bikes. It might be the citizen committee I staff, dedicated to non-motorized transportation. It might be that I need to lose a few pounds.

Whatever it is, I am training for the Seattle to Portland. I am freaked out, because apparently that's a REALLY long way.

And, I spent my ride home from work today blinking the rain out of my eyes and hoping that I'm not the body type that bulks up from exercise. I really don't want to end up looking like this:

Champion, from The Triplets of Belleville, one of the best animated movies of all time.


  1. I want to look like him:) He's got lean arms and great calf muscles. YOU GO GIRL!! You can do it. You are gonna do great. I'm jealous. My sister and I are coming out Oregon to run the RUN LIKE HELL 1/2 marathon in October.
    love keepin up with your blog.

  2. You're totally cool!!! I so wish I was able to ride this thing with you, but alas, my body is way uncooperative these days. You can totally do it, you conquered the marathon after all!


I love comments! Leave me one and I'll just about burst!
