G’day all… I must be crazy (well I’m a Sufferlandrian, so that’s probably a given, right?). So I’ve signed up for Dry July. The Aussies here are probably familiar with the idea, but not sure about overseas. Basic deal is - no drinking for all of July, and try to raise money for a charity.
But… there were a couple of problems. I’m allergic to social media, and I’d earmarked Winter 2021 to go for a KOS attempt. But I am most definitely planning on having a drink after finishing!
So… the only solution, is obviously to do Dry July… and then do the KOS attempt on 1 August!
I’ve flagged the McGrath Foundation as my sponsor of choice. They support people with Breast Cancer; the money raised it to help pay for the nurses that provide the support to those affected.
If you’d like to help me suffer twice… not drink for a whole month, then spend 12-13 hours on the trainer… then head on over to https://www.dryjuly.com/users/chris-herrmann and please chip in.
And… to make it even more entertaining… I just did a HM and hit some scary numbers (well scary for me)… which means… I am in for a world of hurt. Lucky that’s why I signed up
I haven’t worked out exactly where I’ll be posting the ride progress yet, because I’m social-media-impaired… but it’ll definitely on Strava:
just ping me on there if you want to follow.
Cheers all, looking forward to more shredded chamois!
