'Tis the time of year when I start contemplating what events I want to participate in. I'm registered for the 3 Day but the timing of that means there's a 99% chance I won't go. 

This year I think my focus will be on children's cancer charities. 

In September I'm doing the Great Cycle Challenge again. Same goal, 300 miles in 30 days.

This is a for-sure thing because it's done virtually so I don't need to worry about it being canceled because of COVID (though I seriously hope we're all vaccinated by then and life will be mostly normal...)

300 miles is my bare minimum goal; I did it last year so barring injuries or illness there's no reason I can't do it again. And if I get close before the end of the month, I can bump it up.

Also on tap is St. Baldrick's. This will be year 8, but there's a significant chance that it will be a virtual event, so I'll likely self fund this one (donations will not be turned away, though!)

The date on it is tentative, but they're hoping for in-person options...I'm not holding my breath because the odds of enough people being vaccinated are low, though I still hope the numbers go way down before then.

Other than that...we're really just wanting enough normalcy that we can do something for our anniversary this year. The plan was Disneyland but with the changes they're making I'm not counting on that either. It might be seriously packed for a long time after they reopen, and I'm just not interested in a packed park.

We'll figure something out. There are other fun places to go.

Riding for a cause, that's a beautiful thing. Also the St. Baldrick's, you are wonderful to do that.
