Bike MS 2010

Due to funding and me just having a baby a few months prior, Jon rode alone to represent our team, Team Loretta Scott. George, Rhiannon, and I volunteered. It was still a great adventure and experience!!! Jon made friends as he normally does and ended up having a great group to ride with!!! :)
For those of you who don't know, Bike MS is a fundraiser put on every year by our local Multiple Sclerosis chapter. Our local ride is on the Trail of the Coeur d' Alenes and is absolutely beautiful!!!! It is a 150 mile bike ride broken up into 2 days of 75 miles, from Mullan, ID to Plummer, ID and the opposite on the second day. We will all be riding it next year, so if anyone wants to join our team let me know!!! :)

Leaving the Harrison rest stop onto the last leg of the ride

Rhiannon and I volunteered at the Harrison rest stop on day 1. It is a beautiful little town on Lake Coeur d' Alene!!!

George, Rhiannon, and I volunteered in Kellogg on day 2 letting the riders know to watch out for traffic while crossing the "busy" street. It wasn't raining when I took this pic, but it rained...no it poured most of the day!!! Thank goodness we had umbrellas!!! Poor Jon got soaked though as you will see!

Jon almost to the finish line!!! Soaked and tired!!!!

Here we all are after Jon was able to dry off and change! You did GREAT Jon and we are all proud of you!!!! We have a lot of fundraising, training, and a weight loss plan to accomplish before the ride next year!

Go Cougs!!!!!!!!

We got to go to the first home game for WSU Football this season!!! They played Montana State, we knew it would be a good game and would be one that they actually had a pretty good chance of winning! (sad, I know!) It did turn out just that way! It was a GREAT game; especially the second half and even more so, the last quarter!!! They won 23-22 as shown in the last picture. It was a beautiful day and a great day for a Football game!!!!
