Tour de SFC Update - $632.50+ and Counting


A quick check-in for late Sunday night. I did not ride today because of having responsibilities today at church. Attendance was off just a bit due to the Labor Day weekend.

I did ride yesterday evening after the Walk-A-Thon yesterday morning. I rode hard pretty much of the fifteen mile jaunt. It was again very hot (93 degrees with a heat index of 97). The humidity was hanging out at 44%. I managed to drink to bottles of Gatorade on the ride.

I did have a good burst on a mile long stretch. I sprinted most of the way and finished the mile in 2:57. That translates into riding a mile with at least a 20 mph average in that mile. I was able to sustain that pace although I was pretty tired out by the time it was over with. A few times I looked down on my speedometer and was pushing 26 mph.

I have picked up $200+ in the last day. The following folks were added to the contributors. I am trying to reach $5000. After today's increase we have $4,367.50 to go.

I hope to make a lot of headway in the next four days. Tomorrow is Labor Day and I intend on catching up on a little sleep. Tuesday will be a huge day in my life. It is sort of like a Christmas Day and I am certain that I am going to have a lot to blog about Tuesday. Keep coming back to this blog especially if you are a minister.

By the way, if you want to send a check, it needs to go to:
