Life Without Lupus - Wheels for a Life without Lupus: Not believable...

Not believable...

What a 24 hours it was and has been. We made it - broke the record and then some. More on that later. Andy Paradysz, Lindsay Hyman (CTS coach and human being, extraordinaire) kept me focused and going forward. From gentle prodding to making sure I stayed hydrated and fed, always supportive every lap, and being on it every step of the way, there's just no way this event would be successful without them. No way. Every time I came around, there they both were sitting on stools, standing, clapping. Full-time clappers and motivators, Mom Paradysz, Angela Paradysz, Pat Campbell, Jeffrey, Lauren, Andrew and Alyssa Cohen, Bob & AnneMarie Donaldson, Pat and Sandy Corpora, Allen Abbott, Kim Walnes, Charles and Jodey Teller, all of the video feed watchers, you inspired for every turn of my cranks. Lupus was the beneficiary of this most incredible day. More people now know about it and understand the passion behind those who are looking to cure and treat it. Allie, Dani, and Nico, thanks for always smiling and holding up those signs. And, to the Morning Call, WFMZ, Service Electric, Philadelphia Daily News...Wow. You captured magic.

Truly inspirational. I checked in on your video feed regularly and was in awe of the incredible cadence with every lap.

You, my friend deserve so much credit for being a driving force behind Lupus awareness.

Way to take this to eleven (and then some)

I too checked in on the video feed this past weekend - what an amazing feat. Had no doubts, not even one.

Congratulations to you, your family, and the Lupus community.
