Asking for donations

There is no easy way to go about this, so I need to dive right in. I will be sending paper letters to people as well as emails. I drafted my letters. My goal is reasonable ($2,000) and I am confident that I can raise this.

This weekend I will be training with the ABQ biking crew from TNT. Then we will go look at bikes. I want to buy a decent road bike because the Raleigh Hybrid Bike I have is okay for the road (knobby tires and all) but to go more than 20 miles it will kill me. Considering I had not ridden a bike in decades before I bought it, it is great. It will get me through a Triathlon but if I want to go further (like the Santa Fe Century) it just will not do.
