One Month Out.
I can say for sure that being one month out from the Ride to Cure Diabetes is making me a little nervous. I’m not at the point where I’m going to say I can’t go, but I’m definitely at the point where I’m just not sure about anything.
First, I’m not even halfway to reaching my goal in fundraising. I’ve asked (and re-asked) almost everyone I know and still I’m only at $1200, which is 40% of my reduced goal. How can I get another $1800 when it’s taken so long just to get to $1200?
Second, and more importantly, I’m not sure I can physically do it. Between Roche, BlogHer and moving this Friday, I haven’t had the amount of time to work out in the gym. My longest ride so far is 19 miles, and I did a total of 27 miles in one weekend. But the shortest ride possible at the Ride to Cure Diabetes is 23 miles. I didn’t really want to do the shortest ride. But maybe that’s the best I can do this year.
I suppose that’s a very “diabetes” thing to say. Do the best you can do. Heck, that’s a very “life” thing to say. Do the best you can do.
If you can donate anything, please do. And if you can’t, I would also appreciate any blog posts, tweets or emails you can spare. Thanks.
