Ramping up

Seattle-To-Portland is in 3 weeks. Today I got out on the bike for just over 50 miles and around 3300ft of climbing (I think). It was an early start as I had to be done in time to take my soon to be 4-year-old to a church activity (obstacle courses, ice cream, games, all while learning good stuff. What's a 4-year-old not to like!)

Next week is the half marathon (I downgraded due to some soreness in my knee - more on that in another post). I think on the 4th of July I'll head out for around 80 miles. Then it's time for 205 miles of fun. Can't believe it's almost here.

I'll leave you with a shameless plug. Steve is having a giveaway for a $75 gift cert to Surprisingly, and as it's name spells out, it's an online store and they have shoes! I've only just glanced at the site, but now that I've found a shoe that works for me this would be a great way to order a shoe that I know works. Free shipping is definitely a bonus. They say they also do free exchanges, and 90-day unconditional returns. Plus their prices seem pretty good - $20 less than the store for the shoes I bought :(

Yes it's late, but if you comment on Steve's post (link) you will be entered to win a $75 gift cert to But hurry! You must comment by midnight June 20th (yes that's tonight - I really did mean to post about this earlier!)
