42 days until the Pac Crest Triathlon

I'm setting my transition area up for another brick.  Yesterday we did 22 miles of riding and 4 miles of running which with all the rolling hills it turned into walking up and running down.
I'm at 95% of my fundraising goal...thanks to all of you for supporting me on my journey to raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
