A Dream Come True

Riding the 150 miles in two days for charity really was a dream come true.
Just 5 short years ago my life hung in a balance with Heart Disease threatening to end it all,
and now being not only a Mended Heart, but exceeding all expectations…
Here are some highlights
 
 
Hope Alaska, waiting for the start, I was looking at the chaser bikes and admiring how comfortable their seats look.
We had Lot’s of support vehicles and were never far from help, though I didn’t see anyone who required it.

There was allot of interaction and comradery, but also long hours of being alone,

sometimes wondering if I could manage to make it.

As I was driving home and saw riders up to an hour away from the finish, I saw the determination and pain on their faces, and I was deeply moved and appreciative. The MS Hope to Cure 150 mile bike ride through the Chugach Mountains in Alaska, a personal best for me and a top 10 all time outdoor adventure. Much grattitude te to my sponsors, supporters and all those of you who use positive energy to make things better!

This past week I have been busy with work and life, coming down off of that high, recovering and planning the next adventure.

Meanwhile nature never ceases to amaze me, and this is the season of the sun here so…

    Good one Steve and congratulations also! Man, that bike seat looks cruel! It would seem to me that someone could get much smarter on those seat designs.

    Well done indeed – an adventure and a great feat.Also, a great sun-photo; was it from a plane or a mountain? A sunrise or a sunset? (I have never thought about it – is there some way to tell?)

    Bless the Lord O My soul and all that is within me….Psalm 103…that is what came to mind when I see your sunset pic or is it a sunrise…I sang that to my new baby granddaughter a few days ago…God never ceases to amaze me!!! Congrats on the ride and the mended heart….grace to you shell

  11. Patsy says:

    Hi Steve, Congrats and so happy for you. Not may people will go after their dreams the way you do. I was just thinking about you and stopped by, I\’m over on FaceBook now as I felt I didn\’t write very good blogs or should I say boring. LOL My nephew left Alaska a few months ago . He had been there for 15 years, I didn\’t think he would ever leave, he seemed to have loved it so. But I guess you go wherethe Coast Guard says to go. Have a wonderful Day and God Bless. Hugs
