So, the big BORP fundraising ride is in two days, and we're so excited! Ellen is here from Minnesota, to ride with us. (In fact, we're meeting all the members of our team for lunch today.)
When Robb first started cycling after his spinal cord injury, he could only go for about five minutes, and then his body would just give out. Blog readers know that last weekend we finally did the entire distance of the ride we signed on for. At the time that we signed up to ride twenty five miles, all Robb was capable of riding was half that distance. And this past week, he's done over twenty five miles, twice. You have no idea how much this means to us!
Part of this was due to the fact that his recovery is progressing, and part of it was sheer stubbornness. We were going to prove to ourselves and all the people who supported us that we could do this ride.
At the end of the ride, I'm not going to feel any less of a sense of accomplishment than the folks who rode a century (hundred miles) that day! And all of the people who rode the ten mile ride? They're gonna feel great about their accomplishments, too.
Think of us this Saturday, won't you?
