Today was the first day I've ridden in nearly a month. I can't begin to tell you how good it felt to get back out on the bike. It was only a 20 mile day but it felt so good. I met Jose Santiago who is the founder of a veterans group called Warriors 4 Life. These guys are a small group who is focused on the veteran and not the politics of a big organization. All the people. at this point, are all volunteers that run the group and they are doing some great work. I think I may be shifting my focus from R2R to the Warriors 4 Life group. I really like the small personal feeling of this organization. I encourage all of you on Facebook like and follow Warriors 4 Life. https://www.facebook.com/Warriors4Life/
Just getting on the bike today has shown me just how much I love being out on the bike. I REALLY need to find a career in cycling. I want to be out on the bike and find a way to help others reach their dreams. I want to use cycling to prove to people that anything is possible, by opening the mind and removing ones own barriers, that goals can be reached.
