July 21st Training Day

Today was my 3rd training ride, getting ready for the Givetolive.ca ride from Vancouver to Austin, TX. It was sunny, very windy and I rode after a long day in my Blueknowser Consulting business.

But the ride was along the Niagara River Parkway... according to Winston Churchill, one of the most beautiful drives in the world. When I leave the house, in the first kilometer, I pass Peller Estates Winery, followed closely by Laily, Inniskillin, and about 12 others... but I resist!

So, today I added 32 km to my prior 56... and am now 88 toward my target of 1,800 km for my training period that is 92 days long. I will build to the point where I will be ready to ride the 100 or more km per day on The Ride.

Today was a great day...

Grad. Saint Mary's University, 1975, got into the medical device business initially in sales, then various management positions up to president, all in Medical Devices. I prefer therapy products over diagnostic, but they are all fun, and in a way have defined my life. I have now evolved, with help from my 35 year partner Lynnda with whom I now share every hour. I am into staying healthy, photography, kayaking, bicycling, gardening and two books a week. I wish I had gotten to this stage earlier!
