Livestrong Challenge - Austin, TX 2009

With the Tour de France starting this weekend, my growing interest in cycling, and the inspiration from watching Lance Armstrong, I have decided to do something productive with my latest hobby. In memory of Grandpa and Jeanne's Aunt Toni, I am running the Livestrong Challenge 5K on October 24 and riding the Livestrong Challenge 90 mile ride the next day, October 25 in Austin, Tx.

I am trying to raise $2,500 to help Livestrong/The Lance Armstrong Foundation fight cancer and raise global awareness. If you would like to make a donation, please visit http://austin09.livestrong.org/craig_helmreich 

If you don't want to donate, please support my efforts by refraining from kicking me in the calves the week of October 19th.  Your support, one way or the other, is greatly appreciated.

Formatting issues

Apologies for the formatting. I thought that I had laid it out perfectly, but the words no longer line up with the corresponding photos. You get the idea!

Celebrating the Wedding of Gretchen and Jason

The guests waited patiently ...

... for the beautiful bride and groom.

And a fun time was had by all!

(With apologies to the Birchler brothers Tom, Jim and John who weren't around when I was taking photos.)
