M.S. Tour de Farms : 35 miles

"It would have been a good ride if....."

  • It was not pouring down rain.
  • The temperature was above 70
  • There were not 2 flat tires on the team.
  • A team memeber did not wreck on the railroad tracks

It actually was a great ride. There were friends. Alot of laughter.

Today, I got up at 4 am to the sound of heavy rain outside. The plan was to ride 75 miles. Every excuse not to go was running through my mind. I knew that later I would be upset that I didn't ride. When I got there, I found some other team members in the parking lot. Iron Snoopy , Moose and I walked up to get our packets. We were quickly soaking wet. I decided on the walk up that I would do 35 instead of 75. I felt like that I was wimping out but I also knew that I had to go to work then to relay for life in the PM. When we got back to the cars, one of the other riders opted out and everyone else also backed down to the 35. I can't remember how many times that I laughed but what a crazy group. So much fun to be with. We were all glad to get done and chilled to the bone. A very memorable day.

I got home , warmed up in the shower, then took a small nap to recover. Then I headed to work to treat a patient. It went well and I was out in an hour.

Next , I was off to the American Cancer Society "Relay for Life". My team already had the camp site set up. We were dressed as cowboys and had the "O Kure" Corral. I had a great time there also. I saw quite a few of my patients. Again alot of laughs while we walked around the track. I only lasted a few hours.

Waddling to dry off and warm up again.............

On Saturday, I will be riding the MS Tour de Farms to raise money for MS. My cause is a patient of mine who is 50 years old with MS and Breast Cancer. She came in for her treaments in a scooter because she was unable to walk anymore. Just getting on the treatment table was a challenge. By the end of her treatments, she was totally exhausted. I will be riding 75 miles for her then going to the Relay for life to race money for the American Cancer Society. Any donation is appreciated but prayers are also wonderful.
