With the girls in Maine, I had hoped to push past my 140-150 mile weekly goal. Unfortunately, I am right in the middle of two large proposal efforts for the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke and National Cancer Institute. The work week was just that ... work ... often into the late night hours. If I didn't stay up so late, maybe I could get up early and ride. Well, that didn't happen. The weekend was a different story. I was able to schedule two great rides and still put in some needed time on the proposals.
