Today was the day that I officially registered for the CCC. I contributed $200 of my own money to get started. And then right after I created my FB fundraising page, I got my first contribution for $50! I was ecstatic! One of my students, Willow contributed $50! And then I got a contribution from a friend I had many, many years ago back in Swansea!

That night I got a call from Cap’n Pete from Team Billy. He too made me feel right at home. Cap’n Pete is a real veteran. He has been doing this since 2000, so I knew I was in good hands. I told him I was averaging about 20 miles about 2 or 3 times a week and he said that was “perfect”, so I am right on track when it comes to training. Cap’n Pete also told me that I had to cross train. He also told me he was going to send me the newsletters that had current information and tips for riding the CCC.

I am really glad that I signed up with Team Billy. I know I am going to have a blast doing this!
