CYCLE: 90 MIN. / AVE 15.6 MPH

After such an emotionally draining week-I took the road bike out this morning. The bike group is doing a ride tomorrow but its Father's Day and I want to be at home with the family.

In the past week , a friend of my 15 y.o. daughter was killed in a car crash, my running buddy was attacked in her own home, and another friend's mother-in-law was at the end of battle with cancer. I took a step back this morning and thanked God for my life.

When I headed out , I had no plan in mind. I ended up riding to the crash site. I said a prayer for the family and felt my heart skip a beat as I looked at the cross at the side of the road..It was time to stop and smell the roses.
