Stepping into a year that derails many, I wanted to go about it in a different way.
Enjoy life and pour out more than I take in!
My birthday wish is to have you join me in DONATING to my Wish A Mile Ride.

What Lead Me To This??
Last year, we spent 7 days the northern most part of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula, at Wilderness State Park. This brought joy beyond belief for a number of reasons..
- I love the outdoors
- Family fell in love with camping
- Many miles of cycling
- Time with friends
- LOTS of memories made
I love those times and through the inspiration of a few folks, have decided to not just sit by while getting older. You have probably heard me talking about spending a tremendous amount of time on my bike lately. Why is this?
Well there are really for a couple reasons why I have been sharing:
- It is nearly impossible to train for something these days with out sharing it with everyone (unless your this person: WATCH HERE)
- To raise money for Make A Wish
This is a charity that met us very close and person. We have two sets of friends who have been deeply impacted by Make A Wish (MAW). During their time of challenge and kids fighting for their lives, MAW gave them an island of refuge.
This is Ethan.. He is an incredible young man who has overcome a lot and and his smile is infectious. We have known his family for many years and have seen him in some great places and some real struggles. When a Orange Theory Fitness agreed to donate to our teams efforts with MAW, Ethan and his mom were asked to be a part of receiving the check for the team. Both of them were extremely honored to be a part of the program and they couldn’t help but share about their experience with MAW. It was a great gift from a really great group of people!
Join me by donating to Make A Wish’s event this year called Wish A Mile, where we will be riding from Traverse City, Michigan to Michigan International Speedway (300 Miles in 3 days!!)
