Total peace

Being at peace
Every clear morning, around 5:30 am I reach the spot on Henderson Highway that turns east. Today there were  NO people and NO cars for the first two hours. At this turn of Henderson Highway I am always able to see the most beautiful morning sunrise sky you can imagine. 
Today it was particularly beautiful.  I sensed a peace that is hard to describe. I felt totally at peace with God. I felt totally at peace with the people in our lives. I felt totally at peace with myself. I was lacking nothing.
I realized how blessed I am to be able to ride and celebrate 15,000 changed lives, now filled with Hope for a better future.
Thank you, Charles & Esther  Mulli, for allowing Ruth and I to be your ambassadors in Manitoba and beyond.
I was able to translate this peace into another personal best on the bike.333km in 11h, 33min, at an average speed of 29.1km/hour and only 8 min off bike time.
I am off for 2 days before I begin my first of 3 x 500km days in preparation for the 1005 km Race Across Oregon later in July.
