The Ride

On May 26, I set out on a bike ride up a local mountain.  Five months later, I am still facing the challenges of that ride.  But like any ride I have ever been on- no matter the difficulty, distance, or elevation gain- I will not quit or retreat in fear. I will keep riding, keep putting every ounce of energy and determination I have into it, keep fighting.  And I will reach the top.  When I do, the views will be breathtaking. They will be inspirational.  And they will be worth the sweat, blood, and tears.  But for now, I must keep my focus on the end goal, continue fighting, and know without a doubt that the tough switchbacks will lead me to the peak.  Keep calm and carry on.
