The moment I have been training for ...
Jun 07, 2012 by Alysia Smith

Hey Supporters,

I have officially completed my goal of a century ride ... around some pretty hilly terrain. The views were amazing to say the least - you can see for yourself by checking out the following video made by our Coach Tim Hamburger:

This is Emerald Bay ... after making the first and hardest climb of the day - you are met by this well deserved view!

We took the bike path option down to Trukee - I feel relaxed just looking at this picture!

This is my fearless leader, Coach Tim Hamburger! I don't think he knows I took this picture yet ... but this is right before he told me to look to the right and checkout how close our hotel was. He told me "Only three more miles to go, Alysia!" At that moment, I could feel tears roll down my cheeks.

I accomplished both of my goals: complete a century ride AND raise money for vital research. Let's be honest, I couldn't have done it without each and everyone of you. For that, THANK YOU!

-Alysia Smith

I just realized that I have been fundraising for just over a month - and have managed to raise over $2k!!!! This weekend, I did a Happy Hour will fellow teammate Sarah Rooney AND a roadblock with Jeremy, Charity, Peter, Kim, Bonnie, Rachael and Jenni! Busy busy bee ... but I am proof that raising money isn't that hard! I decided on a whim to do the century ride around Lake Tahoe a month ago - and I will hit my goal before Balance Due. The fundraising goal was by no means small .. but completely doable :-) So what's holding you back? Join today :-)

Jess(Vegas), Myself, Tim(Coach), Bill(Vegas?), Noah(Tahoe), and John(Tahoe)
