Wow!!! We made to St Augustine on a warm, sunny and no wind day. What a blessing with all the terrible weather around us.
We went to a beach and I dipped my front tire in the Atlantic, no small feat after biking 47 miles and having to schlep across a big beach to the water. But it was so worth every step to accomplish this journey SAFELY. To bring awareness to Alzheimer’s disease and meet so many kind and caring people along the way was amazing. I was greeted by the The Central and North Florida Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association and they made the finish so very special!!! We had a great visit and a story was posted today in the health section of the St. Augustine Record newspaper. I did another story for another local paper so we will be getting more press for our fight against Alzheimer’s.
We rode 40 miles this morning at our own pace and met up at a local fire station where a police escort took us to the beach. Pretty cool, we even got to go through red lights.
We have a group dinner tonight to say goodbye and off to the airport bright and early.
I hope to be home to tomorrow at 3:39pm into Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport!!!!
I can’t wait to see everyone and thank you all in person! Thank you for fighting the fight against Alzheimer’s with me and sharing my story it is something I will never forget!!
I am so truly Blessed to live in this wonderful country and to have had the opportunity to see it from the seat of a bike!!!!
With memories for a lifetime,
