A message from The Partnership at Drugfree.org
June 15th, 2012:
I touched the $185 lb. mark for the first time in a long, long while. Ok, so It's 185.8, but still!!! My goal is under 180 by September 7th. My Birthday.
Set my PR on the spinner this week for a 90 minute session and PLAN on a long day in the saddle tomorrow. I hope Alamo to Milpitas via Calaveras Rd. Keyword, HOPE.
Until next time, thansk for following.
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”
At the end of May this year I rode the Sonoma Echelon Gran Fondo in support of DRUGFREE.ORG. It was amazing. Life changing! If you want to see me quite humbled by a ride that was evidently over my head, click here... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D57p4OtYaao ...it's not pretty.
I've also been humbled by the support shown by The Partnership at Drugfree.org. They are a drug abuse prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery resource, existing to help parents and caregivers effectively address alcohol and drug abuse with their teens and young adults. You can visit their website to learn more - http://www.drugfree.org/
If I've learned anything over the past couple of years it is that if you aren't personally struggling with some vice or addiction that you just can't kick, you don't have to look far to see someone who is; a spouse, a sibling, a parent. If we pretend, "it's OK", enable, or simply turn a blind eye...we'll never get to the root cause.
PLEASE SUPPORT MY EFFORTS! I'd love to have you join my team and ride. If that's not for your, however, I'll ask that you help raise money and awareness for this worthwhile cause or donate from this page (just click on my name).
We'll do the training. We'll do the sweating. We'll do the 'leg work' on September 16, riding 95 miles and nearly 9,000 vertical feet. We just ask that you help in any way you can. $500 or $5.
During the Gran Fondo, we'll be thinking about those who donate. Those thoughts and our months of preparation will help us fly through this 95 miles on this mountainous course.
