RIDIN’ FOR A CURE – TAHOE 2013
In 5 short months, my life is going to change…again.
My legs will ache. My shins will burn. My hands will tingle. My shoulders will tense. My heart will pound. The tears will flow.
With that description, it doesn’t sound like a pleasant experience at all. But actually – it’s one of the best experiences of my life!!
On June 2nd, I will be biking 100 miles around Lake Tahoe, CA as part of Team in Training to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
I hope you will consider sponsoring me.
This year will be my second attempt to complete America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride with Team in Training, and I’m already looking forward to the range of emotions I will feel in the next 5 months.
The season typically starts out in March with me feeling anxious, nervous, and thinking – can I really do this?
By April I’m feeling more calm, but not overly excited yet.
By May I am all out wanting June to be here.
And the day before the ride I feel on top of the world. At least …that’s how last year went.
This year I have a new confidence about me, as I know I can do this.
For it is written in the Bible, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13).
So my goals are much like last year’s – finish the ride and not walk up a hill….or crash and total the bike I was riding (as I did last year).
In addition to training for Tahoe, I am mainly doing this event to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Setting a lofty goal of $5,500. I’m asking you to help by making a donation to my fundraising campaign.
During the time I did spend on the course last year, I passed and was passed by other cancer fighters and survivors, and heard of so many honored patients we were riding for.
Thinking back I still get goosebumps and choked up.
I want to encourage you to watch this video because it reminds me why I am doing why I am doing this: http://youtu.be/bLDn5xBfaeo
While I’m still in the anxious mode, staying positive and optimistic will get me to June!
Please make a donation to support my participation in Team in Training and help LLS find a cure.
I can't do it without you! If everyone gave $10, I would surely reach my goal!
