We Made It!!

IT’S OVER!  We have crossed the finish line! It’s a huge accomplishment to say we, the RAAM rookies, finished and survived Race Across America, “The World’s Toughest Bike Race!”

Jake, the young boy we rode to support, was the real winner in all this.  I heard he has left the hospital and is recuperating at home.

I want to thank our supporters, volunteers, and the cheerleaders that followed us via SenseAware.  Thank you for your donations, e-mails, calls, prayers, texts, tweets and Facebook posts.  I have never been involved with something of this magnitude. There have been hundreds of hours given by dozens of volunteers to support a great cause. I want all of you to know how much of an impact this has had on me, my fellow racers, our crew, and of course, the kids at Akron Children’s Hospital.  You have made a difference. Please know that I/we appreciate you.

The route looks much shorter on paper!
