I was given the coveted number of 24.
Owen took the first lap, the survivor lap. It was rainy, but exhilarating. My parents, friends Sara, Eden and Adam came out in the rain to provide support and cheer on us. It meant a lot to me that they were there.

Spencer Lueders, Founder of 24 Hours of Booty taking a turn on the rickshawSpencer took over pedaling the rickshaw for the next three laps. Another rider took over for the last lap of the day.
The weather cleared up on Sunday and it turned out to be a beautiful day. Several other riders volunteers to pedal the rickshaw. Many thanks to Ally, Eric and Dan for taking turns and allowing me to go four more laps. We had a flat, but the support crew was great and many thanks to the Race Pace staff for getting us back on the course.
The last part of the lap included a hill that was very tough when pedaling the rickshaw and many volunteers and riders helped us by pushing up the hill.

Many thanks to all the staff and volunteers that made this a special experience. Most importantly, I need to send out much thanks to Owen who made it possible for me to particpate in Booty. None of this would have been possible if he had not arranged it.
