    TNT Jersey too small!

    Oh no! The ride is in 2 weeks! I followed the sizing guidelines... but why didn't I follow my gut?
    Ugh

    That happened to me with the running tank. Ummmm... they didn't account for the boobage.
    I just called my coach and she contacted the office and got me a bigger size. It should be fairly easy. Don't panic.... just yet, anyway.
    Are you doing Tahoe?

    I emailed the coordinator... hoping for the best... Yes, I'm doing Tahoe... and way nervous! Will you be there?

    Good luck with the jersey - and have fun at Tahoe! It was our first century in 2001 (with TNT) and it is beautiful. We'll be up there riding over Memorial Day. I love this time of year there - the pine smell, things starting to get warm but still snow on the mountains!

    Have fun and pace yourself. Listen to your coaches - and keep the water on the right side.

    I've only ever done marathons with TNT- never a bike ride. I would LOVE to do Tahoe some day, tho. Good luck and HAVE FUN!!

    I'm terrified... I am not a great hill climber and it'll only be harder in altitude... I guess if it takes me 10 hours, it takes me 10 hours.

    You'll be fine. Let the gorgeous scenery distract you and just focus on riding to the next rest stop.

    No worries! We live in the flatland midwest here, and we have people doing Tahoe, very successfully, each year. You're going to do GREAT! (that's what they make granny gears for). We expect a full report and pictures when you get back!
