Fall 2009. My longest friend in Portland had just been diagnosed with cancer. My dog had just died from cancer. And my dad was celebrating 1 year surviving cancer. The Universe was clearly trying to tell me something...

January 2010. We received a postcard in the mail from Team in Training to ride a bike around Lake Tahoe. I said "that's crazy." So we signed up. Rode our bikes and  raised around $7,000 to fight cancer.
In 2019 I will venture for the 8th time around that big, beautiful lake they call Tahoe...curing cancer 1 mile at a time. 
Below are some of my favoritepictures from the first 7 seasons...
