THE STORY:

Hey there you,

Guess what? I'm at it again! Some of you will remember the last time I raised money. I trained to run a half marathon (2003 - in honor of my grandfather) and a full marathon (2005 - in memory of my grandfather and honor of my father) to benefit the American Stroke Association. Since then I've had 3 knee surgeries and my orthopedic surgeon strongly suggested I take up cycling instead. 


Fast forward to 2015, when I bought my road bike and found the joy of getting my knees in the breeze. So now here I am planning to complete a 100k (62 mile) bike ride. It's not the Tour De France but, hey, it's further than I've ridden to date.


As uncomfortable as it makes me to ask anyone for anything, here I am doing just that. Of course, any donation you may decide to make is not for me. Proceeds and donations benefit the Pat and Emmitt Smith Charities. So whether you decide to give, join me on a training ride, forward this message to friends, say a prayer for me, and/or send me a gift certificate for a massage ... I say thank you.


Oh, one more thing - I just found out about the ride and it is less than a month away, on Sept 30. So, if you are going to give, give quick! Pretty please. Is that rude, begging and demanding at the same time? Forgive me.

 


Thanks again,

Shelby
