All in all, it was a lot of fun, and I kind of plan on doing it again at least one more time after graduation is over in order to finish up my fundraising. My favorite part was actually talking to people and seeing how excited they were about what I was doing.

As an aside, yes, in that top picture, that is my front tire resting on my copy of the Classics of Philosophy, my intro philosophy book that convinced me that I would forever be a physicist.

And in reply to my last post, Cavendish ended up winning San Remo and surprising everyone. That man is a winning machine. And Taylor Phinney just won the Gold in the Worlds Individual Pursuit. Sweet. We have an American wearing one of the coveted rainbow jerseys again.
