The Ride to Conquer Cancer

My husband Tim is participating in the Norton Institute's Ride to Conquer Cancer this weekend. I am so proud of him! He road 80 miles yesterday and is doing 75 today. Basically, they ride from Louisville to Lexington and then back again. They had some rain yesterday, but he weathered it like a trooper. Today the skies are clear and the temps are in the 70s. LB, his parents and I visited him at camp last night and he was feeling good. One of his knees was a bit sore, but, other than that, he felt great.

The Norton Institute supported the ride really well. They had plenty of pit stops with snacks, water and sports drinks, "coaches" following to pick up those who needed help and plenty of bike mechanics. At camp they had two person tents set up, medical assistance, hot showers and free massages. They also provided dinner and a Beatles cover band. These pics are from day one. I'll post day two pics later.
