My Mom called me about this funraising project with JDRF called Ride For the Cure.
She jokingly said she already signed up my 2 sisters and I for this ride. Basically, you raise a minimum donation to even be in the ride, I haven't figured out what that number is quite yet but I think it is thousand ( s ), so would require quite a bit of fundraising, AND it is a ride, not a race, of between 30-100 miles.
Don't laugh, I used to be quite an athlete, and let's face it I am determined to do ANYTHING to help find a cure for my daughter and all the other children and adults living with type 1 diabetes.
I know it would be a monumental physical task, but so is living everyday of your life with type 1 diabetes. I see what Ayla goes through. I'd love to show her anything is possible.
Of course, I would be signing on for the 30 mile stretch. JDRF provides trainers and I think lodging and meals for the riders.
Can I do this? Any cyclists out there? I think the training would also be the perfect opportunity to lose the last 44 lbs I'm determined to lose. My sister, Erika said, " Oh you'll lose 40 lbs alright!"
I must warn you, the more people tell me I CAN'T do it, the more insistant I'll become that I CAN.
I need a training partner. Anyone want to really get in shape? We've got until the middle of July.
