Race2Rebuild, along with some very generous folks at FDNY and Team Red, White, and Blue, are getting me back on a bike after nearly a decade. An IED in Iraq led doctors to tell me I would never do a lot of things again including SCUBA dive, mountain climb, and ride bikes (which clearly I could do as a child, with or without extraterrestrials). I can now dive (slowly); climb (don't look down); and finally, thanks to these great people, ride (a trike).
This is my first full race that includes a bike. As a local to Sandy hit areas and a founding member of Race2Rebuild, I'm honored to do it with them.
