I sat down Sunday evening with my friends Shannon and Nathan Rome in their living room and had pleasant conversation the way neighbors used to do on front porches across the land of the free. You know, back in the “good ole days?” We talked about everything from high school days to our careers to bicycling to my relocation back in my hometown of South Frankfort.

 

Once again, all of the tell-tell signs are evident that my bicycling pastime has been a backseat priority to other things in life as of recent. It isn’t difficult to look up my Strava account and see the lack of activity, or notice that this is our first blog post in a while also. It’s certainly not due to a lack of interest that I’ve been missing in action this season, but as life sometimes goes, ¬†my bicycling just hasn’t been atop my list of priorities. That list has been consumed with life: work, selling, buying, and moving out of and into homes, and all the fun stuff that goes along with that whole process, oh and did I mention work. I’ve also been struggling a little with my knee surgery recovery. I know I need to be much more consistent with my therapy and strengthening exercises, but it hasn’t been a top priority either.

 

Enough with the excuses, it’s again time to create a priority shift and after discussing a late summer cycling event with Nathan, I decided to sign up for the “Bike to Beat Cancer” event in Louisville in September. I’m very excited to get rolling on the bike again, but even more excited to join Nathan’s Frankfort based team for this grand century ride. My most excitement comes from the feeling I have in knowing I’m doing a part in helping to fight cancer. What an awful, nasty disease that has probably touched every single person in America in some way, or will at some point in their life. I only wish I could do more.

 

So on behalf of all my family and friends that either are currently battling or have ever¬†battled some form of cancer, I vow to go the distance for you and hope to raise as much money for research as I possibly can along the way! I truly know the pain and agony I may experience on my bicycling century ride will never compare to any of the pain you all have been through. I would like to personally ask each and everyone of my friends and/or RAM Cycling followers to please consider making a donation on my behalf in the “Bike to Beat Cancer” event benefitting Norton Cancer Institute. … $5…$10…$20……$25…$50…$100….whatever you can spare, I am very gracious for your support and I’m sure cancer patients throughout the area are so very thankful, as well.
