    Fooster's RAAM Team

    One of us Foosters (pardon my ignorance for forgetting - is it Brandy?) is part of a RAAM support team.

    Which team is yours, and how are they doing?

    We're actually Team Beat Cancer and we're hanging in there! We've had a lot of setbacks, vehicle breakdowns, sick and sleep deprived riders, delusional and hallucinating riders, sleepy crew. We're still on track to finish though. Right now I'm in the follow vehicle behind George who is doing a 53 mile pull and is cruising along at 21mph. We're 11 miles shy of the Cambridge City, Indiana Time Station (41) and we'll have our other rider do a long pull tonight so George can sleep, then we're back to rapid exchanges in the morning. I finally took a shower for the first time since last Tuesday and we're about to meet John (R900 from BF) at the TS when he brings some food!

    Thanks for thinking about us. It has been rough but these riders are amazing!

    Brandy, thanks for the update. Must be a thrill to be a part of that race. Best wishes to you and your team.

    hang in there Brandy, that's seems like a rough thing to do and the crew seems tough!
    sorry about some of them getting sick, hope they all get better, being sleep deprived is a really hard thing to go though..
    let us know more when you have a chance!

    pssst foosters...

    ( Brandy's team is doing something pretty amazing here, all for cancer.. they are tired, sick and still giving it all they can... are you foosters asleep? I think they could use a bit of the encouragement and love we are so known for! )

    Mean people are like slinkys. They're really not worth much but still are rather entertaining to watch tumble down the stairs.

    Pulling for you here in PA, Brandy!

    The Team I supported and pulled for, (TEAM ENDEAVOR), as I mentioned above, crossed the finish line in Atlantic City last night at 6:47 PM!!! They ended up finishing sixth out of 16 in the Four Person Male division! One of the cyclists was one of my Team In Training coaches last fall when I rode my first century with them.

    Sorry if it sounded like I was saying Brandy's team was Team Endeavor.

    That's cool, Gypsy. The more the merrier. Your team is gonzo too.

    Brandy, since I'm sure you have *tons* of free time on your hands at the moment, perhaps you could tell us which particular organization(s) Team Beat Cancer is raising funds for, and how those interested might contribute.

    (I know, I know, everyone would rather Brandy spend her free time posting new pics of herself in the eye candy thread. I'm sure she'll get to that eventually as well.)

    Looks like Team Beat Cancer has about 300 miles to go. ETA is what, about 4 AM or so?

    Hey all...George had to go solo this afternoon when Rick's achilles tendons finally gave out...they were giving him major trouble for most of the ride. George is so exhausted, but we pulled off and rested for about an hour. He's still joking and my driver and navigator are joking with him and keeping him laughing. This section is relentless...roller after roller after roller....in fact...4,910 ft worth of rollers in 68 miles.
