The latter one (Barrington Honor Ride and Run, September 22) I am especially excited about, as it raises money for a great cause: helping wounded warriors' physical rehabilitation through bicycling! How cool is that? I cannot get my bike to Barrington, IL where the ride/run is being held for the 27-mile ride; so, I'm running the 10K instead.
