Day 17: Richmond to Indianapolis

Today started out beautifully. There were sunny skies, a cool breeze, and tailwinds. We were booking it, and we actually ate lunch at 10:30 because we rode 40 miles so quickly.

Things took a turn when the skies turned dark and we heard thunder. All of the groups stopped where they were around mile 50 and waited a while to see if it was going to pass.

One group decided to pull off into a small coffee shop in Greenfield, IN.  While sitting inside Carol’s Cornerstone Café, the team met one local who recently was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. Kenneth and Deanna shared their story and the way they are choosing to move forward with a positive attitude in the next few months. Their story was very touching and we hope that everything goes well with the surgery coming up in early July.

Our stay over tonight is at Szymon’s sister-in-law’s parent’s house. They have a beautiful home and are so generous to host us. They provided a delicious dinner, snacks, and dessert. They even did our laundry, always a big bonus! I know I say this every time, but people are so generous. We could not be luckier!
