This weekend is the MS 150. I somehow have gotten myself signed up to ride 180 miles (I think the whole point of the 150 in MS150 is that it’s supposed to be 150 miles, but this one is 180) on a bicycle from Houston to Austin. Basically, it’s all I can think about. I am so nervous that I won’t be able to finish it. I do think I might have lost my mind. At any rate, people have already donated to the cause, so it’s too late to turn back now.
On my final training ride last night before the big day, I realized that I need to have songs in mind that I can sing to myself to keep me going on stretches where I don’t have anyone to talk to or don’t have the energy to talk. Any suggestions? My favorites so far have been "Stickshifts and Safetybelts" by Cake and "Movin’ right along" by the muppets (Fozzie and Kermie to be exact). So, if you’re the type to pray, please say a little prayer for me on Saturday and Sunday as I will be in the process of getting my butt kicked on a bicycle. Knitting content will surely return next week.
Oh, and there is no extended post…I just can’t get that to go away. 🙂
