The Georgia Race for Autism in Lawrenceville was yesterday, with 10k, 5k and 1 mile options. This event is awesome- there’s a family fun day post-race with petting zoo, pony rides, etc. Too bad I took the monkeys to the fair last week… this was way better and for a better cause.
I did a little swim, and then headed to Stone Mountain for the 24 Hours of Booty cycling event benefiting the Livestrong Cancer Foundation and is directed and organized to raise vital funds for cancer research and survivorship.
Coach Monster had invited me to join his team, and SBM pals Elizabeth and Kimberly also joined. I couldn’t stay for the whole 24 hours because of the kids, etc., but I am definitely going to plan for it next year. It was an AWESOME event!
I rode in honor of my grandmother, Mombow, who is a breast cancer survivor, and is still battling cancer. Everyone was riding for someone, it seemed. Our team captain, Chris, is a brain tumor survivor.
I rode about 12 miles with Coach Monster and friends, and then they shouted “BOB ROLL” and took off, leaving me in the the dust. I thought it was some sort of dude code, because obviously Bob Roll is a cycling legend. Turns out… nope… it was really Bob Roll.
