    Good grief. . . yes, SadieKate, I meant to say wider tires, not wheels, and also May, not April. I really appreciate getting this info, and thanks very much!

    MP, yay that we signed up or yay that I got on the trainer?

    jobob, I agree on the Wells Fargo thing. What a way to show respect for someone's accomplishments. Now, you go record "I can do it" and put it under your pillow and I have to take my own advice also. This is a big mental step for me. Why is it that I view distance and climbing so differently between a mountain bike and a road bike. There's probably a good psychological study there.

    I am going to do this one (100m). I am scheduled for restraint training that day, but I'm going to call in sick... I'm probably going to give up that job anyway.

    Wanted to do the Grizzly Peak Century this year (May 7th) but I won't get much training in until classes end in mid-May. Hopefully my thesis will be almost done by then too. Guess it depends on how much torture the engineering faculty want to put me through......
    Cheers!

    Ah...someone who actually wants to work on her thesis. Send my happy vibes. Somehow I ended up in other classes with tons of writing so I've got more than thesis to do. And I'm not sure I care!

    Hey, I used to work at a place that required restraint training. It sucks to work somewhere that doesn't, because no one does it correctly.

    You know, I've had horse restraint training, too! I guess there are a lot of things that need restraining.

    I am so jealous that you guys live somewhere that has a Wine Country Century, BTW...

    i've completely hijacked this thread, but - I work as a counselor at Juvenile Hall. I've been there about 5 years now. It can be very rewarding (and also discouraging) working with the kids. Their lives are so different than many of ours. I could go on and on about some of the reasons why those kids are the way they are and do what they do. Their home lives are unimaginable to some , I suspect.

    Anyway, I do love trying to bring some stability and discipline to their lives. I will probably take on a big sister role to fill that spot in my heart, but I really need to streamline my schedule (two jobs, full time school, and lunachix right now) after graduation, so I wil be cutting back to one job, while still continuing the lunachix cycling program.

    Looking forward to the sanity!
    Cheers!
