I got my mail confirmation for the Tour de Tohoku. I’m ecstatic! I never win lotteries.
Lots to do now. Need to book the hotel: Nana and her mother are coming along for the trip, although I couldn’t talk Nana into working as a volunteer on the route (much less joining me). I also need to figure out how to transport the bike up and back (as well as which bike — watch this space!).
(I have until Sunday to confirm my spot and order the jersey.)
