People often ask me where I get my intensity. What makes me determined? What are my goals? My family makes me determined, from raising my now 9 year old son, to trying to be a good son/grandson/brother/uncle to the rest of my family.
So what drives me particularly? Being completely honest, I love when you challenge or underestimate me. I love it. Please keep doing it. My parents and sister are the same way. We're a competitive bunch. My father, in particular, right now. He was diagnosed with Stage II Multiple Myeloma. I have already had this anger and disgust for cancer. It's personal. It's always personal. And I'm stating the obvious here, but cancer does not care who you are, if it's coming after you, it's coming after you. And I love a challenge. My challenge is to try to contribute what I can to try to stop this mutation of cells. My father's challenge is to try and survive. By doing this cycling event, I feel like I'm contributing to both.
My goals, and not to sound too beauty pageant-esq, is try to raise my son to be a decent human being and to the leave people around me better off than when they met me. That's my drive. To perform the best that I can. I hope to do the same on this ride. Please donate to my cause.
