With the season fast approaching and the Cleveland game soon to follow I've been amping up my Dolphins activity the last few days. Starting to get my tailgating set-up organized, last thing you want is to get 2 hours from home to discover something is missing. Then there is always the idea of customizing something,.....another table/clothes, who knows. Anyways I ordered something online for the Wifey ( Dolphins related....) and I was wondering why it hasn't come yet, so I check the tracking and it said it was left at the door. Well, my Mom almost never uses the front door here so it went unnoticed. I go to retrieve it and there it was with another undiscovered piece of mail from FedEx.
It seems my timing for registering for the DCC got me two tickets and a parking pass to the final game of the pre season. They overnighted it on Aug. 31st,......to Ohio. The game was on Sept 1st,......in Miami.
I would have went,...if they would've sent a plane ticket too.....
Speaking of the DCC,....I've been riding my ass off. Training rides have been going 25-30 miles 4/5 times a week. There is an "A", "B", & "C" class for the longer rides. The speed for their "A" is 18-20 MPH. My average is 17.5 to 18.5, but I know its slowed by stopping at traffic lights and slowing to cross streets. On long uninterrupted stretches to ride above 20/21 MPH most of the time. Wind also plays a part in this too. But all in all I feel like I should be able to ride this strong.
Now for the fundraising,....
I've smashed it ! They said 1st time / out-of-state riders only had to raise half. Over $750 in like two days. Got to $1600 in just under two weeks. F'n amazing ! And,....over $750 came from this little blog. THANK YOU !
BUT,...QUITTERS NEVER WIN, AND WINNERS NEVER QUIT.
Cancer sucks, that's why I'm asking for more help. Five dollars,......just five dollars. I have a personal goal of 150 sponsors, and 29 have answered the call. I WILL get more sponsors. I got more friends to hit up, the Toledo Fanclub,The Deep End Crew, panhandling in Cleveland and Miami,.....it will most definitely increase my bottom line.
I could stop right now, but I'm not going too....
So please,...go to my rider page at RideDCC : Griffin Van Nest and help me get to 150 sponsors.
