Feeling Better....

Bernie checked in with me this morning after pulling the night shift with Tim. He's back on the bike! He's feeling much better and feels recovered from his dehydration experience. He's feeling so good that he was finally able to eat something of substance: a Sonic Double-Cheeseburger! Now I kind of wish I was out burning all those calories so I could have one of them babies! Bernie is so happy to be riding again that him and Tim even tacked on an extra hour and a half riding, seems they got lost! I'm blaming that one on Nuxie! :) Sounds like people are starting to get into a routine and are getting more rest. On a family note, Bernie's parents who live in Colorado are going to meet him briefly at Alamosa. That will be a welcome respite. The team was heading to Cortez Co when I talked to him. They should be in Kansas tomorrow, out of the mountains and into the wind. I don't know what is worse. Bernie said that the scenery has been amazing, riding in the desert at night is like being in a planetarium. I asked him for any funny stories, and he said I'll have to get them from Neil, so here's hoping I can talk to him eventually. Thanks to the supportive comments, I'll pass them on to the guys next time I talk to them. Go Team Strongheart!

Tell Neil that the UJVF finished off over 20 beers in his honor last night! Keep that head down and rubber on the road!

I am relieved that the B Train is back on track. Go Bernie! Skibby, thanks for the updates. Reviewing the stats on the website is OK but your input fills in all the colors in the picture. Stay well, breathe deeply and enjoy the experience. (Easy for me to say!) Go Team Strongheart! Good vibes to all the team members.

What a relief! I woke up at 5 am this morning (on my day off) and couldn't go back to sleep without checking online to see how you are doing.
Bernie, you are Joe's new hero!
Love,
