Wow! What a ride with David Dangerfield this morning! He is 74 and kicked my hide. We rode 30 miles around Sand Hollow Golf Course and Sand Hollow Reservoir. Such a beautiful day and great company!

86 more days! Ok, I have been riding to work every day this week. It makes for a stinky day in the office but I don't think I stand out too much. 

There have been some hard hills this week but what I am noticing is that it seems to be getting easier. I can make it to work faster, I get up hills without having to hit my granny gear and I am not out of breath. Those are all very good signs.

 Today's 39 mile ride consisted of 5 cattle guards! RAIN!! And a brutal hill that was 10% climb. My hubby was the sag wagon today which was very helpful. Gunlock Reservoir was beautiful and very calm. 87 days to go....

Today I rode 23 miles with a strong headwind. Took me 10 miles to finally get in the groove. Tomorrow I am going to do 56 miles before church. All I could think about today was how grateful I am for my family. It is weird to have all 4 of my boys grown up. When I look at those who are homeless, many of them are lonely, have no family support, no tight connections to share dreams with....Be grateful for your families!!!

So excited for the BIG TRIP to start. Only 3760 miles...

Switchpoint Community Resource Center serves families and individuals who are experiencing homelessness and poverty.  The misconception that people want to be homeless and poor is far from the truth. At Switchpoint, we find that with resources, tools and support generations of poverty can be taught how to be middle class, how to become self-sufficient.
