As a reminder, I am biking over 4,000 miles across the country, from Baltimore, MD to San Francisco, CA in support of the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults as part of the 4K For Cancer. Along the way, I am also doing a combination of 10,000 sit-ups and push-ups for each young adult who dies from cancer every year.

Total Miles This Week: 583.5 (Trip Total = 1370)

Total Push-Ups This Week: 40 (Trip Total = 260)

Total Sit-Ups This Week: 50 (Trip Total = 420)


I still need to work on catching up on those push-ups and sit-ups.


Here are some highlights from the past week:

*everyone riding for their dad on Father’s Day

*seeing a cookie monster with a Coors tied to a tree going up this little mountian-ish road in TN

*camping at Mammoth Cave National Park (the first National Park I’ve ever been to!)

*going on a cave tour at Mammoth Cave

*having pancakes at the Pfunky Griddle in Nashville

*one of our vans broke down – so we got a Ford Focus hatchback. It’s kind of small… but we’re getting an SUV/truck/van at some point soon.

*staying in a hotel! …with free drinks! (hotel review here)

*visiting a winery and brewery with 2 of the other girls on a van day

*helping an older couple from the Netherlands change a flat on their way across the country, from VA to OR.

*staying at a hotel in St. Louis because my friend from home came to visit! (hotel review here)
