kudos to beth

I'm married to a wonderful woman. On Sat 7 October 2006, Beth biked 100 miles in a Nor'Easter in the Seagull Century. She was riding with Team in Training to raise money for leukemia and lymphoma cancer research. Team in Training raised over $800,000 for cancer research in this event.

The girls and I met Beth @ Assateague Island, 60 miles into her trek (pics). Beth wore ribbons to represent cancer victims - white ribbons represented those who've passed (including Beth's dad when she was 12 and then her step-dad when she was 17) and purple for those who have beaten cancer (including my first cousin, Robert Thompson and my aunt, Peggy Edwards).

I'm so proud of her I could bust! She did a great job.

100 miles ain't no walk in the park! Great job. Looked cold as well. What was her time?

well, it definitely wasn't a race! They stopped every 20 miles and at one point they stopped to help an older gentleman change his tire. she left at 7 AM and got back about 5 PM.
