today, mod*tot raced with her friends, classmates + hundreds of kids in the ryan's ride bike race benefiting lance armstrong's foundation
+ cancer survivor programs around the bay area.
ryan's ride was created by a cancer survivor + his wife, who had twin sons that went to bing nursery school at stanford university, like mod*tot. 1 of the twins, ryan passed away suddenly of unexplained cause, so his parents created this wonderful community fundraising event in his honor. it's part of the burlingame criterium raced by amateurs + professionals. mod*tot's mod*opa (grandfather) + mod*pop (father) raced in their categories too (my husband won the criterium race once). i ran along the course with mod*tot (the kids are so cute!). we spotted top pros + long time biking friends, like olympian sheila young's husband jim ochowitz, best friend of lance armstrong + father of local olympic hopeful ellie.

Sounds like a great time and a great cause
Fun! And yay for mod*tot! I'm so glad there was such a great turn-out for the event.
hey sarah! i peeked at your blog. i used to live in a house bought from that french actor Jean-Paul Belmondo in your side-bar picture from Breathless with jean seberg. his daughter lived in the house, but he owned it, in piedmont, california.
How cool is that! I wish awesome French actors owned houses in North Carolina...Lucky you :)
thats so sad about Ryan. Im glad they made the best of a tragic situation.
The Phua family belongs to the same parents of multiples club as we do and I really admire how they turned their tragedy into something positive. What a wonderful way to commemorate their son!
Very cool. We've got a similar ride here in Tempe, AZ. Great fun for a Great cause!
Good for you getting the whole family out there
Wow, you all ran the race! Way to go!
