Just the cost of a Starbucks Coffee can go a long way for someone battling MS!
In June 2015, I will be participating in my first Colorado MS 150 Bike Ride! It is not my first MS 150 Ride, but it has been over 20 years since I have completed a ride for MS.
My first ride was when I was about 15 years old. I grew up in Kansas City (on the KS side), and biked everywhere. For me, biking was like walking…it was just second nature. That is why I was soo excited to donate to the MS 150 Bike Ride and support their foundation.
However, the ride was not as easy as I thought! Even as a young teenager when your body has next to no recovery time from strenuous activity.
I trained for a most of the spring and summer that year for the ride in August. My training schedule was mostly long rides of about 100 miles a week. I was looking forward to the ride and I was prepared.
The first day I completed my first century ride, which is 100 miles in a day! The next day I finished with 70 miles, which brought me from Kansas City, MO to Columbia, MO. It was a long two days!
The biggest pain I could remember was in my tush!
Now, I am attempting to make a similar journey in the Bike MS Colorado Ride. However, this time I am 40 years young and have 3 weeks to train. Sooo, I am older and have less prep time on the bike!
Looks like I may need a good masseuse!
For most people that think the midwest is flat have never ridden the terrain on a bike. And if you have, you can agree that it’s not all flat. It may not be the Rockies, but it’s not that easy either!
And speaking of the Rockies, that is where my next MS 150 Bike Ride will be! It is planned along the front range of northern Colorado and I can tell you from experience…its no piece of cake.
In Colorado, you can tell there is a difference when the bikers speak in time, distance, and ELEVATION!
That is by far the most challenging part. Some days you may only ride 30 miles, but it may all be up hill (or a mountain).
So here lies the new challenge:
- Training Time
Three things I didn’t have against me on my last MS 150 Bike Ride. However, all those things combined are nothing compared to the daily challenges someone has when Battling MS.
So, please join me and donate to the MS 150 Bike Ride and support those battling MS.
Thank you for your support, and stay tuned to hear about my training progress and ride results!
