Ready, Set ... Wait

Yesterday I signed books at a great bicycle race in Lancaster, PA. I wish I'd had time to visit one of the nearby Amish farms. It must be an incredible challenge to live such a lifestyle these days. Unfathomable technology is assaulting all of us from every angle. Nowadays I'm particularly intrigued because one of the best bicycle racers in the world today, Floyd Landis, grew up Mennonite. He's totally altered my image of that culture. I met Floyd's family while at the Tour de Georgia. What a wonderful group of people.

I'm full of nervous energy at the moment because tonight is the Ben Franlin Awards Banquet. I'm in NYC awaiting the ceremonies. The Race is a finalist in two categories. I'll let you know how things went at my first opportunity.
