This might be the only photo of the entire Box AIDS/LifeCycle Team! Miss all you sweaty, spandex-covered goofballs! #aidslifecycle #boxalc

I can't believe I have to wait another 50 weeks till I can do this again. Official AIDS/LifeCycle finish line pic thanks to @goldengategeorg! #aidslifecycle #boxalc #iamspecialized @iamspecialized_wmn

I'm so grateful to this guy. I could not have asked for a better tent roomie, ride husband, stage mom, and Selena enthusiast (both Gomez and Quintanilla). From face masks, to second dinners, to back rubs, to prospecting (the kind that's not part of our day job), to enjoying so many aspects of the ride together, thank you for being by my side through it all - the training, fundraising, packing, and road to LA. Thank you for making me foam roll even though I despise it, enlightening me that I had a left gear so I could cruise at 40 mph (...on a downhill... in tailwinds) and for humoring me by buying matching tanks (x2!!) Nik you're truly the best! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ซโ›บ๏ธ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿฝ

On June 4th, the Box ALC team set off on their 545 mile journey from SF to LA. Having trained for months and raised over $140k for AIDS medication, services and education, the 38 members of this team proudly crossed the finish line in West Hollywood on Saturday, 6/10. #boxalc #aidslifecycle2017 #lovedrives #pride #equalhealthcareforall

This is the safety-orange omamori (ใŠๅฎˆใ‚Š) charm I put on my bike for the 545-mile journey from SF to LA, from the Fushimi Inari shrine in Kyoto. It's a little beat up from all that riding, and looks like it absorbed quite a bit of bad luck for me โ€” no flats or injuries the whole way!

This was my life just days ago. The post-ALC blues are real. Grateful for these memories! #AIDSLifecycle #boxalc

Rider #2156, over and out! I'm on the plane at LAX, about to fly over the 545 miles I just spent all last week biking. Stay tuned for more photos from the ride, since looking through photos is my favorite coping strategy for those post-ride blues. PS: Per my surgeon's orders, I biked every mile in those sneakers and flat pedals instead of cycling shoes and clip-in pedals! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ (Photo credit: I totally copied @jasbacca!) . . . #boxalc #aidslifecycle #iamspecialized @iamspecialized_wmn

Feeling lucky to have spent the last week and crossed the finish line among so many remarkable individuals. We either met new or bonded closer and I'm so happy to have shared this experience - all the laughs, hugs, milestones, tough moments, dance parties, words of encouragement, tears, sleep deprived loopiness, and singing with you all โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

Day 7/8: Finish line day has historically been hard for me emotionally, and this year was no different. The accumulated exhaustion, the highs of the finish line juxtaposed against the immediate flood of logistics that follow, and the reacclimation back to a world that doesn't always default to kindness and assuming good intent was hard. Makes me extra grateful for this incredible team. Decompression with the team has included doing the Macarena on the sidewalk near the finish line (kudos to Fadi for the idea), dancing followed by late night burgers in West Hollywood, $400 worth of Chipotle (thank you @zaidivecha for coordinating) playing piano and singing show, pop, and Disney tunes for HOURS over brunch (thank you Tom and Laurie Stromberg for hosting), followed by heart to hearts at the beach with Kate, @aliviacannistra, and @nikmedrano). I couldn't have asked for a better group of people. I still have much to reflect on, but for now, thank you for everything, Team Box. #AIDSLifecycle #boxalc

I'm coping with the post-AIDS/LifeCycle blues by going through all my photos and reliving the adventure. Our team huddle to stay warm on Day 4 was one of my favorite moments. I miss you all! #icebox #boxalc #aidslifecycle

It was Red Dress Day on AIDS/LifeCycle today! It's a tradition that everyone wears red on Day 5, in honor of HIV/AIDS awareness. Our entire team went as Where's Waldo! It was fun, playful, and due to today's extra short mileage (only 52 miles), we took our sweet time at each rest stop, posing for photos and chit-chatting. Two more days left on this wild adventure!! #boxalc #aidslifecycle

We crossed the finish line in West Hollywood yesterday afternoon! My sixth AIDS/LifeCycle DONE! Another 545 miles for the books -- this time in sneakers and flat pedals, nine months after a major ankle injury. Much love to the Box Team, the whole ALC community, the folks who donated to support our cause, and all of you for showering love and encouragement on us all week long. Feeling strong and whole and happy right now. #boxalc #aidslifecycle #iamspecialized @iamspecialized_wmn

Day 7: (last day!) Meet Chicken Lady! She's done the ride for nearly 20 years and is famous on ALC for bringing smiles to people's faces, from the Easter egg treats she lays along routes and on bikes, to walking around rest stops praising her teammates (and clucking her rubber chicken). More than once she's helped turn my mood around when I was in my dark place. #AIDSLifecycle #boxalc

Life-saving butt massage 13 miles from the finish line, thanks to @o_lofo & Derek! (Loren: "It feels like you have rocks or rice in here. Also... this isn't even the weirdest thing I've done this week.") #boxalc #aidslifecycle

Hello Southern California! @jasbacca #boxalc #aidslifecycle

Day 6: (part 2) The silent candlelight vigil on the beach in Ventura (hosted by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence) is a beautiful and sobering tradition the night before we cross the finish line. Important way to honor those who have been lost and the mission of AIDS Lifecycle -- a world without AIDS. #AIDSLifecycle #boxalc
