I Successfully Completed This Year's Pan-Mass Challenge Ride

I was the first member of Team Dolben across the line, at about 11:10, Sunday morning in Provinceton, with my riding partner, Deane, not far behind - not that my goal was to finish first, rather to finish feeling good, which I did. The weather this year was pretty good; a little rain early Saturday, then just humid, but not very hot. Thanks to all of the people who are sponsoring my ride by donating to the PMC.

See today’s coverage by the Boston Globe. Note that 94% of this year’s donations are expected to go to Dana-Farber.
