The Santa Hustle half-marathon, which partnered with the NC Chapter of the ALS Association to enable us to fundraise as part of the event, was a great success. We raised over $30,000, and had a great group of friends and family running part or all of the half marathon with me as I rolled through the 13.1 miles on a recumbent trike loaned to us by Charlotte Cycles (BIG thank you to Charlotte Cycles!). I have to be honest — triking the half marathon was actually pretty easy, much easier than working out on a recumbent bike in the gym. Those trikes are built for speed, so whenever I got to a downhill, I flew! Many thanks to everyone who supported this effort, with your contributions, your participation, your help organizing the event, and your moral support!
