I received a nice send off from my office this afternoon. After hearing about my 14.6% body fat (which they all thought was a little high), they decided that I need to add on even a few more pounds. A huge chocolate chip cookie! You can see the piece that I took. haha! The writing on the cookie said, "Good Luck Randy."
I had a similar send off when I left for Paris to ride in PBP '07. They had all signed a USA cycling jersey, wishing me luck in Paris and hoping that I would qualify for RAAM. I had failed on that attempt, as many of you already know.
So thanks to everyone at my office. You all are fun to work with and very special people. I hope to report all good news as I cross the country.
I just double checked my packing and everything is ready to go. All I need to do now is relax and get my big behind to the airport in the morning.
I'll be tweeting on my Twitter account as well, so join up if you're interested in live updates:
