10k For NAMI
UPDATE 6/17- On May 7th during a morning training ride to Walden Pond, I was struck by an oncoming car. The 50mph collision speed tossed me in the air and subsequently bounced me off the ground. I was transported to the nearest ER for a dozen tests: x-rays, cat scans etc. I limped out of the emergency room with no broken bones but: a severe concussion, damage to my left meniscus and right ankle and PTSD. Unfortunately, Gary Truman, the bike I was going to ride, was totaled. This has not stopped this mission, only fueled it more. Through support of everyone we gain the courage to move forward. This is only building onto the mission’s true purpose, inspiring those who can’t! I am currently rehabbing my injuries and plan to make my attempt this fall. Stay tuned on my Facebook and Instagram for more updates.
On September 30th, 2019 I will depart on a journey down Atlantic Coast of the United States. I will leave this fall from Madawaska, ME on the border of Canada to the southern most point Key West, FL. My goal is to complete this 2,300+ mile adventure in12 days, an average of over 195 miles/day. This will be a new Guinness World Record for the fastest time to cycle the length of the United States from North to South. My mission is to raise $10,000 for NAMI, The National Alliance on Mental Illness, during this adventure. I have lost multiple friends to the terrible disease called depression while suffering myself, allowing me to empathize with others. My hope is to inspire others to: ride, run, swim, ski, hike etc. their ways to a clearer, happier life. Through endurance sports like cycling, I have found a better version of myself. You are not alone in this journey called life and I want to share every moment with you!
