In 36 Days I will be attempting to ride 100 Miles in Burlington, Vermont.
In 36 Days, I WILL ride 100 Miles on my bike in Burlington, Vermont.
Today is my diaversary. Diagnosed with T1D 36 years ago today.
I figured out this mathematical magic this morning… 36 more days til Ride and and 36 years of T1D on the same day. That’s gotta count for something right?
Here’s the newest bit of “flair” in my fundraising plans.
Ok, you knew I was going to figure-out a way to decorate this bike right? I used to bedazzle Dexcom arm sensors. All these warnings about creating drag on the bike… I’m already the slowest one folks. If I’m going to be the caboose, I’ll be a brightly colored, glittered one for sure!
Here’s my social media fundraising idea (scheme) for today:
YOU are going on The JDRF Ride! Say WHAT?!?! For everyone who has donated to MY riding 100 Miles on 7/25, YOUR name (or message) is going ON the bike! Come with me! This bike is all about inspiration, funding vital research, and a LOT of Alecia flair. Where’s the glitter paint? #gettingcrafty #36 #diaversarydream
-> ****MY Dream**** <- (So close to beating the 2001- first year Alecia’s Stem Cells total).
I have had a bit of a heavy heart lately. When I think about this diaversary stuff, I have uncharacteristically lacked feelings on it. I haven’t been upset per se, but I have lacked enthusiasm. My friend posted this photo today. This certainly turned my mood around. Note: I definitely do NOT like chocolate mint Cliff bars.
Also if anyone has a bike helmet covered in LED lights and rhinestones, let’s talk.
