Weekend Happenings


This weekend I will be riding in the Orlando Tour de Cure.  Last year I planned on cycling this as a century but I got really sick (103F temperature) and could not participate.  This year I did not prepare myself for the century.  I will probably be riding the 62 -77 mile race.  It all depends on how I feel that morning and what my team plans on riding.  Is anyone else planning to cycle this event?

I need this ride to boost my confidence for my upcoming Clermont 70.3.  Last year Clermont's heat, humidity and hills kick my butt.  Of the four 70.3s I did last year, Clermont was by far the toughest.  I am a little scare of this race this year.  Thankfully, they moved the race up a few months to avoid the horrible Florida summer heat.  The feels like temperature for the race last year was 100-110F.  This caused my knee and my lower back to knot-up and spasm.  It also caused many people to have heat related sicknesses.  Hopefully this year will be different.


  1. Good luck in Clermont... I wil missi tthis year but I'll be back for revenge one of these years....

  2. Thanks for the well wishes. Hope to meet you some day.
