One Week To Go

We depart from Bar Harbor, ME in 6 days and about 10 hours. That seems all too close. But I am prepared. 6 of my last 9 rides have all been between 50-100 miles. The first couple were really hard, as the first long rides of the season always are. But I’ve reached the point where I am actually awake at the end of the day. No longer do I eat everything in sight following a 70+ mile ride.

I still eat a lot during training, but I am becoming more efficient.

More important in my preparation, I have reached my fundraising goal! Over $4,295 now–well once everything is processed. Thank you to everyone at Mt. Zion United Methodist Church and my family who have helped with my final push of fundraising! You all have already helped the lives of so many affected by MS.

On Friday morning, I’ll get on the Bike the US for MS van when it passes through Hagerstown, MD on its way to Maine. This is just 4 days away. It is both coming too fast and cannot come fast enough.

I often forget that I go on incredible trips every summer. But this one tops them all, having yet to commence. I will miss all of my friends and family this summer. But I will come back with great stories to tell.

Thank you all for your support. I cannot wait to get on the road and tell you all of my adventures.

I am a college student from Eldersburg, MD. I am biking from Maine to Seattle, WA to raise money and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. The goal is to help end MS for all those affected. Who knew a bicycle could be such a good tool for this cause? This blog will serve as a log of the adventures of my training and my actual journey next summer.
