Welcome to my MS CCSVI research fundraising blog. I am currently training for a double (ultra - 4.8 mile swim, 224 mile bike, 52.4 mile run) ironman in September of 2010 in an effort to fundraise for MS CCSVI research. You can check out my fundraiser site at http://www.microgiving.com/profile/chuck. I suggest clicking on the "About Me" tab as the MicroGiving.com templates were a little limiting so the profile page did not allow me to add all the content I wanted to add. MicroGiving.com does not keep any of the donations for administration/overhead fee. That means 100% of your donation goes directly to fund CCSVI MS research. For more information about CCSVI you can go to http://csvi-ms.net/en/content/ccsvi-huge-breakthrough-ms. Please help spread the word about my fundraising efforts. Thanks.

7/3 Long Ride

154.4 miles... I do not know where to begin. I woke at 3:00 AM (not on purpose, just happened). Rode 41.29 miles @ 19.4 avg and met up with Grady and Jamey for 113.1 miles of hills @ 21.2 avg. Over the course of the ride I had so many ups and downs. There were times when my feet hurt, knees hurt, tush hurt, shoulders hurt, neck hurt...

I could go 20 miles feeling awful and then hit a patch where I felt like I was floating effortlessly. Miles 125-148 felt best and just happened to be the portion of the ride with the most hills. Miles 148-154.4 were the worst. I am definitely not planning on riding that pace during the race as there is NO way I can hold 21.2 for 224 miles.
