Day 179

Well, yesterday was the Tour de Cure in Phoenix.. We signed up for 62 miles and found out the route was actually 65 miles!! SO thats what we did!! We have been training for a few months and were as ready as we were gonna be.. The weather was amazing the first half of the race. then it warmed up a bit. Overall it was an awesome but very hard experience!! We completed the 65 miles in 6.5 hours!!

 Our Red Rider...
 Landon!!! Doing 50 miles today to get his Boy Scout Cycling Merit Badge!!
 Love my boys!!!

 Here we are at 14 miles!! This is fun!!
 Here we are at 49 miles.. not as much fun anymore..SUPER HARD!!

 GO Boys!!
 Craig got a special jersey that says "Red Rider"... That means he has diabetes.. When someone would come by they would say "go red rider!!"  It was pretty cool!!

yep, 65 miles!!!

  We finished... Landon did 50 miles and then my husband picked him u[p and Craig and I finished the other 15 miles, to make a total of 65 miles for Craig and I.. It was brutal!! I was so done at 58 miles..and didnt know if I could finish out another 7 miles.. I pushed though it for Craig and Im so glad I did.. He is a fighter and Im so proud he proves Type 1 doesnt stop you from achieving your goals!!
Craig was the youngest rider for any of the long distance rides this year at Tour de Cure!!  Someone from the ADA came up and thankes him adn told us he was the youngest. So proud!!
