Courage Classic Charity Ride 2007 - With a Twist

Last weekend I rode in the Courage Classic to benefit the Children's Hospital for the third year in a row. I really enjoy this ride every year, but this year had a twist. I didn't ride as many miles because my oldest daughter rode with me on Sunday. She road her own single-geared bike through 36 miles of the course between Copper Mountain and Breckenridge - and she's only nine!!! People on the course were pretty blown away and she was absolutely thrilled to have accomplished the task and to cross the finish line all on her own power. I love being in the outdoors, riding through the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and it was even better having her with me.

Welcome to the New Joint

So useless to ask me why
Throw a kiss and say goodbye
I'll make it this time
I'm ready to cross that fine line
This brother is free
I'll be what I want to be
