Here is what is up for me this coming week. (at least that is the plan)
Monday 333 kmTuesday 333 kmWednesday 333 km Thursday off Friday 500 kmSaturday off Sunday 500 km
Any ‘awake minutes’ left beyond the riding time are spent on finalizing the plans for the four events in August and Race Across Oregon July 19-22.
Some have said to me; “You have already done 30 days of these kind of distances. You can continue to do this”.
I hesitantly agree and yes, I believe I can do this, however I am still nervous and somewhat fearful.
Each day requires a fresh resolve and a willingness to dig deep into the character that defines me on so many levels. If it would not be for the platform that this provides to be a voice for orphaned or abandoned children rescued by MCF, I am not sure I would have the willpower to do even one day.
When I am asked;What is the single biggest strength you have to be able to do this?
My answer is;I know the life of a child filled with despair and hopelessness will be transformed into a life filled with opportunities and hope as a result of the work of MCF.
So my alarm will go off at 3:45 am. I count it a privilege to get up and ride my bike for 333 km to offer ‘Hope’ for a child that presently has none.
