October 9, 2009/ Maria Parker
Finally, it’s the night before. We’ve had Doug Burton here all day today and most of yesterday tuning my bike, and Jim’s (for a back up). I’ve got my water, goo, and tea bottles filled, my little baggies of pretzels and food, my sunglasses, sun screen advil, mp3 player, helmet, etc. ready to go. Now if I can only sleep. I’ve been having anxiety dreams the last few nights. I think I’m tired enough to sleep deeply if for only a few hours tonight. We’ll wake early and leave here by 5:15 am. I start pedaling at 6:30. I’m so grateful for all the support from the Cruzbike community. Wish me luck tomorrw!
