We did it. We lasted 10 years (and then some). I'm happy, shocked, spent, and so on. The fund raiser for the Institute for Myeloma and Bone Cancer Research raised $7,438. It's a bit short of the goal, but a rousing success nonetheless. For my 10k I recreated my bike ride to my old office building. It was on this commute in early 2011 where I started to feel fatigued and weak and worried something might be seriously wrong with me. The surprise of the ride was the building not being there. It's gone. But I'm still here. Below are some photos of the momentous day/ride.
Honestly I'm kind of emotionally at a crossroads after building up to ten years. Where and what and when loom large inside my thought bubble. I'll share more about this later.
For now, I am sending a huge dose of gratitude to everyone. I"m blown away by the support and love. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
