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: 436 (Trip Total = 1806)

Total Push-Ups This Week: 0 (Trip Total = 260)

Total Sit-Ups This Week: 0 (Trip Total = 420)


I still need to work on catching up on those push-ups and sit-ups… it might take me a few weeks after the trip to catch up :p


Here are some highlights from the past week:

*a really awesome storm… so much thunder and lightening… and I was dry the whole time!!

*seeing the arch

*finally mailing all of my postcards!!

*riding by another small airport

*calling 911 because an older man (not on our ride) fell of his bike and started having a seizure… he was left in the good hands of the paramedics

*swimming in the pool of the YMCA we’re staying at and then taking a hot shower

*getting interviewed by a local newspaper

*Finding Vanilla Reloads at a Travel Centers of America (TA) and buying them with a credit card!

*another great thunderstorm

*great conversation with teammates

*taking a nap

*giving away our first scholarship to a young adult affected by cancer
