Goal: $1,200.00

Welcome to my Page

There are approximately 30,000 people living in the United States with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. One of these is Mara, the sister of my future son-in-law David. She has fought hard even undergoing experimental therapy to have as normal a life as possible.  I ride for Mara and others like her, and hope that you will support me in my efforts.

Although tremendous progress has been made in the search for a permanent cure for cystic fibrosis, the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By cycling, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of all people living with cystic fibrosis.  Will you join me? Support me by making a donation to my CF Cycle for Life fundraising campaign today! 

  

 

CF Cycle for Life is a unique event that empowers cyclists to take action and demonstrate their fight in finding a cure for cystic fibrosis in a tangible, yet emotional way.  

 

Help me reach my fundraising goal!

On a windy day, I avoided the rain by riding 25 miles with my son and other 50 milers. It was a good time. I finished in 3 hours including rest stops and averaged 10 mph when moving despite the wind. As you can see, due to the generosity of so many I raised $ 1300 for the cause. Overall the event raised $121,000 and hopefully counting.

Training
With the help of my son ,Michael, who is in far better shape than me, I have some togs, new helmet, refreshed bike and a challenge to get in shape for a 25 mile ride. So far have done 13 and 17 miles on the Katy Trail-very flat. Did 17 miles at Creve Coeur Lake adding some hills and 15 miles at Forest Park w more frequent and somewhat steeper hills. Trying to ride exercise bike at home, plan to use Fitness Center at work to get in shape and lose weight for a worthy cause.
8/27 have been out 5 times on bike so far usually about 16-18 miles but have been adding hills. Have increased speed and strength. Working out at home and fitness center on bikes,elliptical. Gotta get my butt used to riding even w bike pants gets numb. Probably too much weight on it. Also wrists get numb at times.
9/2 Michael and I returned to Katy Trail-did 23 miles over 2 hrs- much better pace and endurance, only rested once and only 15 minutes, much less winded so I guess using fitness center after work is helping.
