I, too, am feeling the pain of not going to the gym. Yesterday was beautiful here so I rode 32.5 miles. I can tell I need consistent training but hopefully the weather will stay halfway decent to ride. It was great ride but I was sore when done. Today and tomorrow will be great days to ride too.

Not sure if any of my team members believe I will do 2 weeks! Plus I get more PTO than the rest of the group. Can’t wait to see you, Papa T! And the rest of my RAGBRAI friends!
