New Frontier

Assistant Ride Leader’s Log. Bike Date 15.15-06-06.22:10

After several days of intense cycling, hospital visits, and opportunities to grow closer as a team, so much has already happened over the past 2 weeks. I’m still partially in shock that we’re already in Columbus, OH and are tackling Indiana next.

An unexpected surprise occurred two nights ago when staying in Canton. Just as I was about to do some grocery shopping for the team, our hosts approach some of my teammates and I. They were trying to film a commercial of sorts for Dad’s day for the church. The premise of the commercial was a daddy-daughter basketball game and one of the daughters couldn’t make it. Since I wa the only girl around, I was asked to be in the commercial. Despite the cycling tan lines and borrowed gym shoes that were 3 sizes too big, I think all went well. Fingers crossed the commercial thing turn out well for them!

My teammates and I have also been able to accomplish more and more each day. Yesterday my group and I were able to tackle hills we never expected we could. Today I rode with some teammates that really pushed me to go faster than I had ever gone before. As I mentally prepare for our century ride (100 miles) tomorrow, I am reminding myself that I’ve been able to accomplish so much more than I ever would have expected and that I just have to take tomorrow one mile at a time.

    I’m proud of you, Carrie. Keep chewing up the miles, one revolution of the crank at a time. Lots of love, Dad
