Today was a rough day
Today was the first day of the ride that my head and heart wasn't in it for reasons I won't go into now. It's amazing when your thoughts change your entire day changes right along with them. I keep trying to remind myself of the quote that Wayne Dyer always used to say..."when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change". Still, some things weigh heavy and it can be tough to get back on track. I had someone ask me today if I'm getting "burnt out" being on the bike so much. Absolutely not! As I told them, some days are better than others and today just happens to be an "other". The constant positive is the great people I continue to meet along the way and that is what I look forward to most each day. I had a short day today, 26.2 miles which brings my cumulative total miles to 1,940.1.
Looking at the maps I have about 1,768 miles to go which puts me right on track for completing the ride at the time I set (Early to mid September).
Thanks to those have reached out to support me with donations...they mean a lot and help a lot!

Great post. You mentioned the great people you meet along your journey. I would like to reciprocate the sentiment. I haven't been on a long tour, but is on my bucket list. I think it is great that you take the time to document your journey allowing people to follow along. Just remember, each revolution of the crank takes you just a little further down the road.
