AIDS/LifeCycle, It Begins

Well, it’s Friday evening and I’m preparing the last few things for AIDS/LifeCycle 6. I’ve got all the clothes and all the gear ready to go. Donations are in and I got almost to $5k, which is cool enough for me (albeit sans a jersey). I’ve been resting this week and I’m itching to get back on the bike. Overall the week has been really hard. Polly got sick and is still needing to be fed with a tube. I’m very tempted to not go on the ride as I feel like I’m abandoning her, but she is getting better and she’ll be in the best possible care with Keith and Cortney helping out. For those that want to you can follow along on the web with the official AIDS/LifeCycle Experience. You can also send messages of support (I’m rider #4142) and I’m going to try and keep an updated voice journal via the gabcast service, which you can find a player linked on my ALC homepage.
