Friends -- 

Last month, I ran a half marathon with my dear friend, Elizabeth, and a fantastic team through the lovely (and flat!) streets of Columbus, Ohio. After my first half marathon in 2013, I swore I would never run another, but Elizabeth had other ideas.

Elizabeth has been a marathoner and ultra-runner for as long as I can remember. We've spent countless days skiing together, and she's a spin instructor -- the person that finally convinced me I should give spin a shot. If I hadn't gone on my own, I know she would have dragged me come hell or high water. 

Last October, Elizabeth was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. As a young non-smoker and incredibly active person, she was the last person you would expect to be impacted by this disease. Earlier this year, she decided to run the Columbus half to mark her one-year anniversary of being diagnosed with lung cancer. Leading up to the half, Elizabeth and the team raised money for the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation, which focuses on early detection of lung cancer.  

Here's where you all come in. My 30th birthday is fast approaching. It's also on a Saturday. I'm going to be hosting a spin class in a nod to Elizabeth and to raise money for the Bonnie J. Addario Foundation. Biker Barre, my beloved spin studio on Capitol Hill, has graciously offered their space to hold the class. And we've got Andrew, one of the best instructors around, to teach the class.

Whether you've never been on a bike, prefer to ride outside, only go to spin to sweat out a hangover, or go all the time, I want you to join me! All you need to do make a donation. I'll be donating $22.00, which is the cost of a regular class at Biker Barre, but whatever you’re comfortable with is wonderful. All of the money raised will go directly to the foundation.

The class will be capped at 30 so sign up now! I’ll be keeping track of who all is attending the class and you’ll receive some more detailed information about a week before the class (you know – like what to wear, a waiver to sign, etc.).

I’m very excited for this – and per usual there will be beverages provided after class, just in case a good cause and my birthday aren’t reason enough!
