Day 1: Leaving Chicago


I am dedicating day 1 to my Mom who died of Alzheimer’s 7 years ago and my Dad who died of a broken heart 8 years ago and whom I try to be like every day.

Special thanks to my dear friend Veronica Weymouth who gave me this bracelet with my parents own handwriting of their names inscribed on it!
I am so grateful and blessed!

THANK YOU TO A GROUP OF FRIENDS FOR AN AWESOME SURPRISE SEND OFF FOR MY APRIL 28TH – JUNE 16TH ROUTE 66 BIKE TRIP. I AM RIDING WITH 16 WOMEN FROM ALL PARTS OF THE COUNTRY THROUGH WOMAN TOURS.
MY BAGS ARE PACKED AND I AM READY TO HEAD OUT FRIDAY FOR ANOTHER IMPORTANT ADVENTURE TO BRING AWARENESS AND FUNDRAISE FOR ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE.
I WILL DO MY BEST TO BE SAFE, ABSORB THE BEAUTY OF OUR COUNTRY, MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OUR FIGHT AGAINST ALZHEIMER’S AND SHARE MY DAILY THOUGHTS ON MY BLOG.
I WILL BE 64YRS. OLD   WHEN I START THIS ADVENTURE AND NOT FOR ONE MOMENT DO I TAKE THIS CHALLENGE LIGHTLY. I ASK FOR SAFETY, STRENGTH, AND APPRECIATION FOR THE  OPPORTUNITY. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO FOLLOW MY RIDE, I AM INSPIRED BY YOUR SUPPORT AND UNDERSTANDING OF WHY WE MUST END ALZHEIMER’S.
