True Inspiration

Have you ever whined about it being cold or hot or rainy or snowing. Quit your griping and read this blog. She just signed up for the Iditarod Invitational. She will be in the 350 miles McGrath Division. 350 miles of bike riding in Alaska, in February . Just damn.

Now, whats your issue. Mine; I just got shamed by her blog, so I'm going riding.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.
