Needs more cowbell!

    Today it's my friend, Luke.  Luke works with my DH and is between chemo and radiation treatments.  He is also a badass cyclist who can ride circles around a whole lot of other badass cyclists.  Today he ran the Chicago Marathon.  I feel like a lazy, pathetic fuck. Blush

        The craziest thing is how fresh he looks in his post race photos.  I'm starting to wonder if he's really human. Tongue

          I ran the Army Ten Miler today.  There were a lot of amputees out there and each one was an inspiration for me today.

              Very cool, I worked at the VA over the Summer and one of the kids (literally, he was really young), lived in the PT room and is competing in the Marine Corp Marathon on the hand bike since he is a paraplegic

                  What an amazing story.  I love that people are still rolling in his honor and to bring attention to ALS.  Thanks for posting that.

                    It seems like I see more and more handbikes at races, even relatively small races.  This is a very cool thing.

                      It is.  It's the badasses who get us out the door when we have so many weak excuses not to do so.

                        I saw a couple of hand bikes, too.  Talk aoout, "I will never quit" - the motto for the race.  It looked pretty exhausting.
