Training for the Santa Hustle Fundraiser

I got this….

Next Saturday (Dec 14) I’m helping to fundraise for the ALS Association NC chapter as we partner with the Santa Hustle half marathon. A variety of different groups are sponsoring one of the 13 miles to raise money, and will have an escort running alongside me as I attempt to finish the 13 miles on a recumbent trike. Training so far is looking good, I can complete 10 miles in 52 minutes. But stationary bikes don’t have to go up hills! A big thanks to Santa Hustle for partnering with the ALS Association, to Charlotte Cycles for loaning me a recumbent trike, and for all of you who have already contributed to the fundraiser. I’ll post photos, hopefully of me finishing the ride in one piece. The link to the gofundme page is here:
