“I love how encouraging everyone is including the volunteers and staff.”

“This is my third year of Ramblin’ Rose and my goal is to complete the race at EVERY venue. This was my first year at the Raleigh venue. I still have to complete the Chapel Hill venue and I will have completed ALL the RR venues. The athletes are supportive of each other with high fives and encouraging words as they pass. I challenged my daughter last year to do Ramblin’ Rose by agreeing to try her diet. We trained together and she loved it and beat me by 6 minutes! I lost 24 pounds and she lost 15 pounds. I love biking and have also completed the MS Tour to Tanglewood twice and take a Spin class three times a week.”
