Ok...here we go with something quick. My only sibling and younger brother is a cyclist...and a full time pastor. So this week he is riding from Beaumont to Texarkan...375 miles on his bicycle...to raise money for Hunger.
Yep...another endurance event....5 days. I talk to him every day this week...I mention, "think about those guys in the Tour de France!" His comment....doping or not they are some of the best athletes on the planet.
This event is tough for the sole purpose of the day to day hammering of the body. It's not like an Ultramarathon....in 24 hrs your done...but more like a mind thing....of climbing back on the saddle the next day....whether you feel like it or not.
