Today was an easy day. There was a cool, gentle breeze blowing from behind that seemed to give just the right amount of lift to our pedal strokes. An overcast sky and the scent of magnolias kept us company. We were high-fiving and fist-bumping all day it was so grand…
Then we woke up this morning and it was time to ride, our dream of an easy day fading in the blazing hot sun like a child’s ice cream cone dropped on hot pavement at a fair.
It was a hot day. But I don’t need to even say that, do I? 92 miles. And even more tomorrow. But you know what? The boys rode like giants, if giants rode bicycles really well with lots of heart.
Parents: be proud of your boys. They are doing a great job. Debbie Love: be proud of your boy. He’s doing his best.
Sam was boss today. Little Sam, that is. Not Big Sam, even though he believes himself to be the boss everyday. (Some people can’t handle a position of power.) Little Sam, also known as Jeremy by at least one person, did a good job. Watch his videos to see for yourself (coming soon).
Keep praying. Keep following. Challenge everyone you know to give a gift. Imagine if every human being on the planet gave $5. Wow. Figuring out the exchange rate for all those folks would be challenging, but what a sight!
