Day 160

Well  we are training for the 62 mile Tour de Cure. We only have 6 weeks left and we NEED sponsors/donations.
There is a $175 minimum fundraising requirement per person for this race.

Anyone wanting to sponsor our team or donate any small amount would be so much appreciated.
Me, Craig and Craig's brother Landon are training for this long 62 miles..
Biking 62 miles for Craig!!

You can sponsor or donate here, please be sure to donate to a certain rider, not to the "team" otherwise it wont count towards our fundraising requirement:

We even bike in the rain to train.. gotta keep on schedule!

 I honestly never thought I would be able to bike 62 miles.. Its been a huge struggle for me (lol, mom of 4 kids who is terribly out of shape).  Also I have pretty much hated bikes since I crashed into a parked car when I was 10.  But Craig really wanted to sign up for this, so we are doing it.  Surprisingly, recently I have started to enjoy it..

 Our last long distance ride was 18 miles.  I was sore for days! This week, we will go 22 miles.  We are on a tight training schedule to get us up and ready for the 62 miles in 6 weeks!!

If you remember, last year, right after Craig was DX, we volunteered at the local Tour de Cure. but this year, we are actually DOING it! crazy!

On another note, Madi has finally started using the pen.. so that means both kids are on the same type of insulin (for now!)
