So, I finished my first leg (Oregon Coast to Portland, 100 miles), but now I wait until the first week in June to leave Portland. That is because I have a work commitment in Little Rock for Clinton Foundation's Health Matters Initiative and my send off party June 2, also my 38th birthday. This time back in Portland has proved a bit challenging this week. Not only did we say goodbye to our 12 year old Rottweiller, Oliver, but I feel in between worlds right now and it's not easy. I am ready to go!
I have a final bike fitting, training rides, a few more trips to the bike shop for supplies and an appointment with a bike mechanic to take a good look to make sure everything is ready to go! Three weeks... I can do this.
