Call me crazy but from May 31st to June 6th I'll be biking 545 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise funds for the life-saving services offered by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. This is going to be quite the adventure and over the next couple of months I'll be training hard!
Why am I doing this?
It's a good cause with some good people. I'm always looking for a new challenge and I'm also very grateful to physically be able to do these types of things (workout each morning, go for hikes, bike etc.) Due to the diagnosis of my back I've had to adjust my life and learn to really listen to my body. It's made me very grateful to be able to get up and move every day (a luxury I no longer take for granted) and I plan to take advantage. What's better, I'll be doing it alongside fellow Adobe employees and supporting each other to the finish for a good cause!
I'd actually registered for the 2020 ride, bought a road bike and kicked off training. My mom (who's a great cyclist and in WAY better shape than me) helped me train and giving me tips. But then the pandemic hit and the AIDs ride was post-poned. So after all that training I've now had to keep in shape for 2 years!!! haha So fingers crossed that 2022 will be the year we ride.
