Twelve Fantastic GABR Memories

As the Great American Bike Race is now in the past, I look back on it with many fond memories. Faith being a GABR star was a blast! We had so much fun during the many new experiences this opportunity afforded us - from doing a radio commercial to being on TV - and the people we worked with were all awesome as well. I just hope Faith isn't too disappointed that she won't get to be the GABR star again next year!

Besides Faith being one of the stars, there are 12 more fantastic things I will always remember about this year's GABR:
  • Faith having the energy to endure being amidst the noise and excitement of the Bike Race all day!

  • Our awesome team - Faith's Fantastic 12 who all showed up to ride and who did a great job of raising money!

  • Our cool t-shirts that turned out great!
  • Having so much fun seeing all of the friends we have made these last 6 1/2 years!
  • Having the team, Badlands Bikers, join in on the event all the way from Watford City!
  • Finding out that Jacey Enget rode not once, twice but three times for her team! She's our hero!
  • Seeing Faith and Tanner having so much fun together!

  • Having a 1/2 team with team captain Lynette and her daughter Ashley - Ashley and Faith's Tie-Dye Team!
  • Being right next to Ashley's team, Paige's team and Tanner's team - all in a row!
  • The support Faith received from her school, her classmates, her friends and family!
  • Rob riding for the 5th year in a row - He's rode for Target, MedEquip and both of Faith's teams
  •  Riders coming back year after year to "Do It for the Kids!"

All in all it was a great GABR and I have already
started recruiting for next year!
See you in 2012!

  1. Hi Cari! I was one of the UMary Physical Therapy students who got the chance to work with Faith last fall as part of my pediatrics class. I was so excited for her when I heard that she was going to be one of the GABR stars this year, but at the same time I was very sad that I wasn't going to be able to participate this year because I'm gone on my final internship. I love the pictures you got and it looked like Faith had a wonderful time! GABR is such an incredible event and I loved being a part of it in the past and look forward to returning in the future...maybe I'll make it back next time Faith is a GABR star! I'm so glad you have this blog so I could see the pictures, so thank you!
