A full year has past since we began training for the 100 mile bike ride around Lake Tahoe. Thanks to all of our family and friends, we were able to raise and donate over $8,000 dollars to help a truly admirable organization of people. It's a new year, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is still out there funding advanced cancer research and supporting families that must fight to keep their loved ones from the grasp of blood cancers. So we must continue to do what we can to help them.
Its in that spirit that we've decided to take on another physical and mental challenge this year, and try something new. Jenelle and I will be training for the Mt. Gretna triathlon (Got the Nerve? Triathlon) this spring, and gathering donations to help the LLS.
Because its a spring event, we've already started our training; Swimming 5ish days a week at the pool, running and cycling with our TNT friends on the weekends. I'm a terrible swimmer, so I need all of the time I can get in the pool. Jenelle's a natural so she won't need much training at all.
Today we rode 21 cold and windy miles with the 2013 AMBBR team in the Elizabethtown area. We were planning on doing a brick run afterwards, but threw in the towel when we realized that our toes were numb when we got back to the car. We're looking forward to warmer weather and regaining the sensation in our fingers and toes.
