Pan Mass Challenge: Start of Outdoor Training

I know the Boston Marathon is getting all the attention as I write this, but I finally got on the bike outside this weekend, to officially kick off the outdoor training phase for the Pan Mass Challenge ( Short ride, but it felt great and the newly-tuned up bike feels incredible.

I also got to fool around with the handlebar camera mount, as you can see. Lesson learned; turning the Flip camera to the side minimizes the "shaky cam" effect. I have no idea why.

As for fundraising– the PMC is a 2-day ride across Massachusetts to benefit the Jimmy Fund for treatment and cures for cancer in children. I am more than $900 toward my fundraising goal of $3,400, die to a number of generous friends out there. From here, I only need 250 of my friends on Utterz, Twitter and elsewhere to sponsor me at $10 (or 125 of you at $20 each), and we’re there.

To sponsor my ride, use the ChipIn widget at the right on, or go directly to PMC at…ftinfo.asp.

Thanks to everyone who has helped so far?

    funny about the bike shorts. I actually wear mtb shorts. it’s been years since I’ve worn the roadie ones.

    so, 192 miles? that’s cool.
