What have I been getting myself into?

Livestrong Challenge San Jose 2010

This past July I rode over 50 miles and raised over $3,200 for the Lance Armstrong Foundation.  My brother’s friend lent me a phenomenal bike and I actually tweeted throughout the day.  While I could not see the tweets people were sending me at the time somehow I felt the love and support flowing throughout the day.  So many times I wanted to quit, but I knew I had to keep on going.  People were counting on me.

Unfortunately I did not take a lot of pictures, but the ones I did manage to snap are posted online. You can check out the gallery or view a slideshow.

I dedicated this bike ride to a family friend, Ugo Veri who was battling a very severe cancer.  Sadly, Ugo lost his battle a short time later, but he left behind a wonderful family and a legacy as a warm, gentle and kind person who was loved by all who knew him.  We will never forget him.
