After having been a part of the successful Team Strong Heart effort in the 2007 Race Across America, I have decided to push the edge of physical and mental endurance and race in the 2008 Race Across America as a solo racer.
The ultimate goal of this new effort will be to continue to raise funds for Camp Odayin while demonstrating that the ordinary, every day bicycle rider/racer can achieve the extraordinary through dedication, perseverance and heart.
I continue to be inspired by the efforts of every single person involved with Team Strong Heart. The courage of the children and staff at Camp Odayin, the fortitude of the 2007 and 2008 Team Strong Heart crew and racers and the countless supporters and sponsors of our mission is simply magical and should serve as an inspiration to bicycle racers and non-racers alike.
2008 will be a great year for cycling and an even greater year for Team Strong Heart. My sincere hope is that my 2008 solo Race Across America effort will be an integral part of this process.
