This year I have decided to mix things up and ride with Team ColumbUS. I am excited to make new friends and continue this journey. Every year, it takes a little soul searching... do I want to do this?.... do I want to commit to raising funds? Do I want to ride on my days off and free time to train? Then that call comes from a friend who just heard those three words.... "You have cancer". My heart breaks and I think.... there's your answer Tux... you can do this so you will.... until you don't have to...
This year in September will be the 10th Anniversary of losing my oldest and dearest friend, Carin Gumerman. Carin was a brave woman who never gave up on anything. I learned so many valuable lessons from her throughout her life and during her battle with cancer. I have always been so amazed by her courage and strength and hope to be half the person she was during her short 36 years. I find it hard to believe that almost 9 years have gone by since Carin left this world.
This year, not only do I ride for Carin but I also ride for everyone who has been effected by cancer including three very special women in my life that have been diagnosed and are fighting the fight.
