I completed the Seagull Century and it was awesome! Thanks so much for all the support, espcially my family who waited at the Asstetegue Island rest stop, 63 miles into the route! It was a great event, I had so much fun being surrounded with tons of other cyclists. Everyone was there to have fun on their bikes and enjoy the ride. At the last rest stop, at 85 miles, the volunteers had pie and ice cream for us, yum! That was a great treat to help push me through the last few miles! Go Team!
Ready, Set, Seagull!

Event weekend is finally here and I am so excited! When I was traveling a couple of weeks ago I came across an article all about the Seagull Century. It's a very popular event amoung cyclists and this year it's celebrating it's 25th anniversary. What started as a ride amoung friends from the Salibury University campus has grown into an event that will see 8,000 participants this weekend, wow! I am very excited to ride with Team in Training and thanks to everyone who has supported me this season!
Look what arrived in the mail the other day! I'm ready to ride!
Let's get Crafty!

I've been putting some of craft skills to work to make some items to sell as part of my fundraising. My first attempt was selling items at the local County Fair but, along with some other local artisans, didn't sell much. So I've decided to continue selling on Etsy to reach a wider audience. I'm making pencil cases, tote bags, and other items that would be great for back to school. Check out my shop here!
My set up at the County Fair and learning, with fellow vendors, that we weren't hitting our target audience to sell our homemade crafts. But now you can support me by shopping online!
Thank you for your support!
And the winner is...

Hello Everyone! I'm having a great time training and exploring some new roads in my neighborhood. This weekend I completed a long ride of 45 miles, not even half of what I'll cover on race day! I'm building my miles every week and am enjoying the experience.
I'm extending my Early Bird Drawing for one week, the new date is 27 July. This will be your last chance to make a donation for a chance to win one of three giftbaskets, that's right, there will be a first, second and third price!
