150 Miles of Ouch

For those who don’t know (because I haven’t hit them up for $$), this weekend I (and blogbuddies Courtney and Betsy) will be cycling 150 miles for charity. We are doing the MS Tour. If you’ve already sponsored me for this tour, thank you!! If I hit you up for $$ and you just haven’t had a chance to donate yet – hold onto those dollars and cents – I may have another fundraising effort later this summer…I know, lucky, lucky you. It was cheaper when I just sat on my ass on the couch, eh? 🙂

Anyway – The MS Tour is a two-day event with three distance options, 35 miles, 150 miles, and 175 miles. We are going to do the 150 miles – 75 miles each day. Call it a chance to attack a personal spirit & body challenge – but with full SAG support and while raising money for a great cause. MS is an incurable (but treatable) auto-immune disease that attacks the nerve fibers of the brain, optic nerve, and spinal cord. It can be difficult to diagnose, and it presents incalculable challenges to those who live with it. Hopefully the $$ that is raised during this ride will help move us closer to a cure and better treatments.

So, wish us luck – and we’ll be back next week with pictures and stories from the road!

    Good luck and take care of yourselves out there! We’ll be thinking of you here in Chicago. Ride like the wind!

    I am very proud of us for doing this (not to mention missing what promises to be a fun weekend in Chicago!)

    I will surely sponsor you for your next challenge—I hope we can break boards together!

    Good Luck! I was just mentioning to Rob that I still needed to sponsor you — so let me know if I still can!

    Thanks all! And if you haven’t sponsored me for this event and want to do so – hold on! I will have another fundraising event in the late summer/early fall. Another great cause – more to come…
