I hope that you catch that train on time. Did you end up trashing the shorts and jersey? If not, rinse them out in tomato juice. That is what they recomend for dogs that tangle with skunks. It seems to neutralize the odor.
I had my Spin-a-thon this last Friday night. It was super. We had thirty people who did three hours on the spinners. Al Amado, master presenter, was one of the ride leaders. We gave away spinning t-shirts, cycling socks, 4 $20 gift certificates to a bike shop, and a 30 minute massage. Everyone had a great time and we raised $1030.00 for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
I know how it is to get discouraged on the bike, I have felt that way before. Hang in there when the legs are aching, and the wind is blowing, and it seems like you are making no progress. You have a big cheering section down here in Houston wishing you all the best.
Smile and the world smiles with you,
