Check In 18 weeks!

431 miles!  It feels so amazing to have 18 weeks behind us on our journey.  There are some days, well, several in the last few weeks, where I just want to throw in the towel and to say the hell with it.  But, something stops me every time.  Stubbornness?  Maybe.  Always have been fairly willful.  I mean there are days when biking up the hill after teaching an intense class stinks and I wish I could throw my bike at someone yet, I keep trekking.  I think when I boil it down I want certain things for my daughter and I know no way to do that but actually DO that.  I want my daughter to understand integrity.  I want her to understand personal responsibility. I want her to express the action of love.  I want her to understand what it means to stop talking, and start walking.  These concepts, push me forward.  In the end, all my frustration and fatigue turn into a sweet, intangible reward that strengthens my resolve and moves us gently along, one step at a time. That my friends, feels good.

Hey! Look at this cool poster I saw the other day.  Love it!
