Before I left to participate in my second year of crewing Get Your Guts in Gear, I wrote about how much this event changed me last year. I talked about how I was welcomed with open arms into a community, or a family actually, filled with some of the most amazingly inspiring and warm people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.
But I left out one of the most important parts of this coming weekend, on purpose. And that was that my dad was going to not only be attending the event with me, but riding the 150 miles over the course of two days. I may have mentioned it in passing but I am not even sure I did that. Truth is that I was really nervous for him to ride and felt like if I talked about how much it meant to me to have him there prior to the event that I may be jinxing things.
A picture is really worth a thousand words.
I have a lot of writing to catch up since it has been a busy few weeks for me (in a good way!). I did want to briefly let anyone who is not on facebook or twitter know that the weekend went fantastic for BOTH my Dad and I. Thank you all so much for the support, love and encouragement… we could’t have done it without your help!
Write more soon. : )
