I'm falling apart, taking pictures and need sponsors
Murat is still sick and went to work regardless in the morning. Having promised my foreman at a certain project that I would visit today and help clarify things, I left the office at 11:00, never to return. Took a couple of random pictures during my voyage which I think are pretty cool. Overheard on the radio today about a woman who rode her bicycle 3200 miles to raise awareness for breast cancer. Fine and dandy.. Why don't I do something similar? For the life of me, I can't think of anything which I want to raise awareness for. My creative juices stopped flowing when I caught this cold... Well not totally... because I DID think of an idea about the miles I've ridden my bike this year so far.. Seems I've far surpassed 4000 miles in 2006.. all I need to do is attach myself to a cause and call the news bureaus. "Hey I just rode my 4,500th mile this year on my bike, to raise awareness for ______ ______!" (You fill in the blank for me.) All year I've been thinking about ordering custom cycling shorts and jerseys which advertise this blog, Amerikan Turk, and others (in exchange for a contribution which I can use to defray my training and racing expenses). Not a lot of time left before I need to order clothing for the 2007 season, so if this idea makes any sense at all I had better develop a marketing plan and start signing up sponsors... Who wants to buy advertising space?
