The Sheetz hits the Road (and trail)

The Sheetz fundraising books are in and ready to be purchased.  Please drop me a line to pick up a few.  For every book purchased, $4 goes to JDRF to support research toward a cure.  Just ask me how to get the most out of these books.  I must say that I am really good at being cheap !

Training is going really well right now.  Bruce and I are probably headed back to Ridgway in a few weeks.  Although, if the water is like last year, we are NOT paddling.  In retrospect, in was probably not the smartest thing I ever did, but not the dumbest either (unfortunately).  I need to get the bike outside and see the world.  I have watched a lot of movies while riding the trainer, but somehow the wind feels different actually being outside.  Hmm.

I need to get my bottom in gear and hit the fundraising harder.  So, don't be surprised when I show up with my palm out.  Whenever I see or hear about the tough times that people are having because of their diabetes, it makes me want to work that much harder.  With the advances in our understanding and of technology, it should not be beyond us to prevent the neuropathy, kidney issues and heart disease that result from abnormal blood glucose levels.

Let me know how you like the new layout and format of the blog.  It has been pretty much the same for a couple of years, so I thought I would try something new.  Quite a leap when you look at my wardrobe!

Thanks to all who have provided encouragement and support.  It is easier to push through when I know I am being held accountable.

More soon!
