Laurie had a wicked sense of humor. Here she is in one of her costumes - Mad Cow Disease.
Last year I started my blog April 2nd (Yep, my blogiversary is next week). I didn't put up anything about the ride because the blog was new and I didn't figure anyone would know me. This year I debated things and decided to put up the link to my MS donation website and if you are interested you can go to it and donate.
I will randomly pick someone from those of you who decided to donate and give some yarn goodness. If I end up with lots of donations I'll have more than one prize.
I am a large person who does very little in the way of exercise. Doing this ride is a huge thing for me. It takes a lot out of me but it helps me remember what Laurie had to go through everyday in her attempt to appear "normal" to the rest of the world. So, I ride for Laurie and I ride in hope that a cure is found and others don't have to go through the problems she did.
