UGH! I woke up today feeling like I had been hit by a mucus train. My head is so stuffed up with snot I cannot even think straight. My throat is scratchy and I am achy all over. All I can think is that I should stay home and sleep it off. Of course, NO LUCK. I had to go into work because I had to much going on today. Talk about an excellent start to the day. I downed my vitamin and an airborne and started getting ready for work. I trudged through the day in a haze and was actually able to get some things accomplished. All day all I could think about was getting home and crawling into the bed. Finally I was able to get out of the office and live out my daydream. After a quick dinner and some meds I was headed to bed. This day was finally starting to look up. I checked my email before crawling into bed and saw an email from Fatty. Now this is a very curious thing indeed. I am just a lowly beginning cyclist. Why is the famous hardcore cyclist Fatty emailing me. It turns out that Fatty was to make my day an awesome day. Even as sick as I was. It turns out that I won a Custom-Painted Giro Ionos Helmet signed by Levi Leipheimer!! I am secretly hoping that the grand prize winner decides they don't want Levi's mountain bike and I am asked to step-up and take it but I am stoked about this helmet. So a day that started horribly has now ended fantastically. Thank you Fatty! Not only for the helmet but for all of the good and awesome things that you do for cancer awareness.
Today I weighed in at 277.
