What's an essential element to achieving goals? What's it take to climb summit that climb? What it going to take for us all to acheive our goal to cure cancer.
This year Team Catch the Spider has decided to focus our attention on breast cancer. Team members have all been touched by this expecially treacherous form of cancer. So, this year we've decided to focus all of our fundraising on supporting a cure for breast cancer.
I'm sure the words breast cancer immediately bring to mind someone close to you touched by this disease (if not your own struggles.) My own experience goes back to 2002 when my mom Rosemarie was first diagnosed. Watching her suffer through multiple rounds of treatment to ultimatley lose the battle was an experience that i will never forget.
I'll often reflect on those times as I churn out the many miles of Obliteride training. While plenty of focus might be rquired to complete the training necessary to ride 100 miles, having the time to focus on such thoughts is one of the benefits for those of us committed to the ride.
