The Borchard-Young Family
Hi friends and family!
The Burlington, Vermont bike ride for JDRF on July 14th will be my first long ride since becomming a mom to my twin boys who turned 1 on May 3rd.
The pregnancy and ensuing year were full of challenges. There were days where I couldn't imagine ever participating in a long distance bike ride again. Somehow, here I am! Ready to ride again!
Being a mom has also made me aware of what millions of families go through with a diagnosis of diabetes. Having a child with a life long obligation of testing blood sugar and taking insulin shots is exhausting and scary.
As always, I ride in honor of my dear friends who I watch conquer diabetes everyday. Blake, who is expecting his second child in July and Jen, who will participate in her second Ironman competition this year!
JDRF is an amazing organization and they fight passionately against Type 1 Diabetes. Please join me and them in this cause.
6 weeks out
So Vermont is about 6 weeks out and I'm feeling like I have A LOT of ground to cover: training and fundraising. I'm totally confident I can do this!
I just got my new bike last weekend and I'm excited to get her out this weekend for a little ride. 20 or so miles would be perfect. Just have to juggle two babies and a husband who's training for half-ironman...
Actually, in the last 2 weeks, I've ridden a bike outside for the first two times since I got pregnant almost 2 years ago!
