One week ago today I rode my bicycle for 102 miles. I still can't believe I did it. I trained for 18 weeks with TeamWILD. Each week of training brought hours and hours on the bike. I pedaled inside, I pedaled outside. I pedaled in the cold, I pedaled in the heat. I pedaled in the rain, I pedaled in the sun. Each week of training brought me closer to the big … [Read more...] about Pedaling in my Sleep: 102-Mile Ride

The ride and the dinner have come and gone, and they were both incredible for me. I'm trying really hard to come up with a post that does it all justice, but I'll tell you right now it … [Read more...] about My First “Red Rider” Experience: Part 1
Sometimes it seems like us locals here in Minnesota need a visitor from out of town to spark a get together. Last time it was Sara, this time it was Allison -- yes, the Allison! A few months back Allison told me that she would be in town with her boyfriend Erik for a wedding. Turns out that Erik has a lot of family around here, which worked out great to help get Allison … [Read more...] about Another Great Get Together!
