MS Global 2007 -- Ciao!

This is my good friend, Lisa Kelly, and her 11-year-old son, Aidan.
This is Tanner Paul, born August 3, 2007, to Lisa, husband Sean, and big brother, Aidan.

This is my bike -- well, most of it -- in a box..

...This is the rest of my bike...

...all snuggled up tight in the box.

Now I'm ready to head to Italy so I can climb the Dolomites with MS Global, a weeklong ride sponsored by the Tyler Hamilton Foundation, to raise money for research and public awareness of multiple sclerosis. MS is a disease that Lisa has and that she, Sean, Aidan, and Tanner live with every day. She's one of the strongest and most gracious human beings I know, and I'm going to do my darndest to make her proud as I attack those Italian mountains.

PS My laptop's going, too, though it's not in the bike box....so as long as I can get online, I'll be posting reports and pics September 5th through the 12th. Stay tuned. Ciao!
