8. Heed Andre's mantra..."Life is GOOD!"

2016 goals: 2,016 miles, 124 hours, Tour de Nebraska, enjoy myself.

2016: worst year of my life with losing Russ in a single vehicle motorcycle accident on February 18th. Pretty much stopped riding for the rest of the year. 2017 will be different. I'm once again signed up for the TdN. Russ would want me to get back on the horse. I'm doing it for both of us! Love you Russell. Miss you more.
