                    everything is going great with the pregnancy thank you ... due to the timing she probably wont make the philly ride with me but she is shooting for the ride for the roses. . fund raising started off well so far 1 event under my belt for $41,000 although the laf likes to take their sweet time in posting the money ... and i have another event on monday may 1 which we hope top raise 25-30,000 ... from what i understand the 1 year record at the laf is 114,000 i missed by a measly $7,000 , not to mantion i gave just about an additional $20,000 to other people to make sure they get yellow jersey status ... anyway .. scott make plans to come down ... and thanks for asking about my wife ...sometimes i forget to ask her how she is feeling .

                      what is the yellow jersey status?

                      (i looked around on the site but i must be looking right at it and missing it or something... )

                      just curious.

                      and congratulations topshelf! i hope when im ready i'll be able to have children.

                        Last year, the yellow jersey was for those who raised at least $25,000. This year, it's $30,000.

                        My goal is to raise enough to participate in the Ride for the Roses for a third year. It used to be an open ride like the LIVESTRONG Challenge, but now it's an invitational.
