Meet the Newest Gunderson CENTURION!!!

That's right, I became a centurion yesterday. I rode my bike 104 miles!!! Yes, be impressed. It was probably the hardest thing that I have ever done in life, but it was totally worth it.
I did the ride with my friend Diane and made a new friend along the way, Shannon. These two ladies made it possible for me to be able to finish. They provided the encouragement that I needed to be able to stick out to the end.I was so happy when I crossed the finish line. They had Martinellis in champagne glasses as we came across. It was great experience and I am so glad that I did. My next riding adventure is a week long riding trip with the Gunderson Family in Northern California, followed by another 100 miles at the MS 150.

Oh my gosh! So I thought you fell off the face of the earth! I'm glad you found me, it has been forever. So get this, we were in Utah a couple of weeks ago! To bad I didn't know thats where you were living. Well, your whole running and biking thing is pretty awesome! I'm lucky if I can make it to the gym, so you go girl! If you ever make it up my way you better let me know! Take Care!
