Why is it that when you even mention the word "fundraiser" people run? I have only been doing this since Feb and boy oh boy what an experience. I like to read what other people are doing and especially if it is cycling related. Can't even begin to tell you how much the subject or me is avoided instead of hey, how's your thing going? I have never asked directly any of my friends and yet it is so taboo. When and if I talk about it I am looking for support that I am doing the right thing and all the work and stress is worth it. I don't push myself on anyone (while some may want that) but I don't. I realize that it may make people uncomfortable for they may not support whatever the cause but come on now. I am at my wits end people and about ready to give up. Truly I am. While I believe in the LAF and its support for the cancer community just not sure if it is worth this anymore.
Does anyone else run into these frustrations? Is there a reason to continue this in what seems to be an unrewarding experience for not me, but the LAF? Help, I need encouragement! Is there an encouragment thread here?
Thanks for reading!
