Supahstar! Jersey for Raising $2,167 for Multiple Sclerosis in the 2017 MS 150

As returning readers may know, last April 29-30, I bicycled 202 miles in two days from Houston to Austin, Texas. That was extremely challenging for A Dude, but I did it, even adding 30 miles to get the “double century.” I’m also very proud of the fact that I obtained donations totalling $2,167 for treatment and research for the degenerative disease.  That was also challenging, since I didn’t (and still don’t) have social media available as tools to reach people.  But all the effort, suffering and training and even cramping on the ride was totally worth it, because in the end, I kicked butt both on and off the bike.

Today, the National MS Society had a gathering to thank us “Superstars” for last year.  I received a spiffy silky-smooth grey tech-t-shirt.  They had a nice spread with beverages We’re having nicer weather, so I got in a bike ride to do errands get downtown. At the gathering I met some biking friends, and a few of us went out to play pool after. It was a perfect ending to my half-birthday.  Then I biked home, making for a decent 20-mile day.  I know that’s not a real holiday, but it’s harmless fun.  I hope you enjoy the photos.
