It feels like I should be putting on spandex riding shorts and packing up a tent, but this morning I am in jeans in front of a computer. My fellow riders are in the dining room behind me… a chorus of happy birthday was just sung for Tori, the woman’s race winner. So many “final thoughts”, but these are the ones that come to me now…
Thank you to Kari. You changed my life by sending that email about TdA three years ago.
Thank you to my fellow riders. You are incredible, inspirational, special people.
Thank you to the TdA staff. Without you, this trip would not have been possible.
Thank you to my friends and family. Your emails, texts, and phone calls of encouragement brought smiles to my face and warmth to my heart.
Thank you to all the sponsors and donators. Because of your generosity, several thousand people inEthiopiawill now have convenient access to clean water and sanitary facilities.
