Pretty par for the course these days that I am overwhelmed and WAYYYY behind on blog reading.
As in 1000+ unread blogs....so many that google has stopped counting.
My sincere apolgoies for falling off the face of the earth.
I haven't been doing much EXCEPT working the REAL job, working the LTF gig, and planning the RIDE 4 Jess on October 9.
Very excited to annouce that we have a sponsor for the event:
Nutrition Addiction: There mission is to bring good nutrition to community members and to provide the valuable service of informing people about the importance of good nutrition and regular exercise to achieve optimum health.
There GOAL: To fill the gap between the desire and the action, giving members the tools to help those that want to make a change for a healthier lifestyle. Providing solutions, motivation, education and a friendly atmosphere where they feel valued and supported with like minded individuals.
We will be starting and ending the ride from their location in Grapevine - all proceeds from smoothie sales that day will be directly donated to the National Brain Tumor Society. Along with that they will post up an aid station around mile 6.5 of the first loop, mile 19.5 of the second loop and mile 32.5 of the third loop which will serve the HerbaLife Prolong Product mixed with water.
Prolong is a dual-source blend of maltodextrin and low glycemic fructose facilitates carbohydrate utilization with a 12:1 carbohydrate-to-protein ratio with ultrapure whey protein isolate that helps reduce muscle breakdown during exercise. Bioavailable electrolytes help maintain a cellular environment for proper muscle contraction and B Vitamins support carbohydrate metabolism. Provides 500% daily value of Vitamin C to scavenge cell-damaging free radicals.
In layman's terms....the stuff is delicious.
So that's where I am right now with THAT! I am very excited that this has taken on a life of it's own and we are a little over a month away from actually hosting the ride.
Don't forget you can participate virtually - just make a donation to my fundraising page (ANY AMOUNT IS APPRECIATED) and let me know you are participating either by commenting or emailing me at
If you are going to actually be able to BE THERE on October 9 - let me know that too.... email or comment!
We will have donation tables set up for credit card donations the day of the ride! Donations will be accepted through November 5!
Happy Monday Y'all!
