My pal Lisa is on Day 4 of the 500 some-odd mile California Aids Ride. I’m going to wager that she’s ridden more in the past three days than she has in her entire life!
Lisa has a huge heart. She has raised at least $15,000 for various charities by doing endurance events for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, comfort and care for families who’s children are suffering from cancer and now AIDS. I’m impressed with her selflessness as well as her ability to embrace a challenge and just go for it. Prior to signing up for the AIDS ride she didn’t own a bike and for sure had never ridden on a street, let alone the side of a freeway climbing hills with names like “Quad Burner”!
She’ll roll in to Los Angeles on Saturday and even though I can’t be there to welcome her across that finish line I’ll be thinking about her!
Now go run!
