While the Black Night from “Monty Python And the Holy Grail” ultimately met his match, you’ve got to admire his tenacity, fighting through the end. “It’s only a scratch, I’ve had worse!”
A supportive group of riders, runners, and swimmers that keep on going, when all seems dismal, and the crest of that hill feels just out of reach… You come unclipped with feet to go? Your shoe come untied 1/3 of the way through your run? Your shorts start slipping around 750 yards? Have a debilitating ataxia? Well, you’re not dead yet so brush it off and keep pushing!
I hope to build up this team in the coming weeks, months and years. For starters, it’s on my goal list for 2015 to start representing at organized rides, maybe even races, and start holding regular local rides around Portland as well, in time, possibly secure some sponsorship and some swag to represent the unending fight. Many of us aren’t geographically close, but we can all add in our collective miles and sweat. Join our Strava Club and see what we can rack up. If you need an invite, or have questions, drop an email to kwesslen at gmail dot com.
Stay tuned for events and more information.
