This Sunday 100 or so of my favorite people hopped on bikes and rolled the final miles of the ALS TDI Tri State Trek with me.
The key word in that sentence was “with.”
After we crossed the finish line, I was presented with the “Forster Saling Spirit and Inspiration Award, “ named for Steve Saling and Bob Forster, two indomitable spirits and incredibly active men despite their fight with ALS. I am humbled and inspired by their model. Bob and Steve don’t do it alone.
ALS is a disease that takes more than one person on a journey they were not expecting.
Parts of it really stink.
However, there are amazing days, like this Sunday, when friends take the road with you, and laughter, stories, and hugs take over.
My silver linings are many. None brighter than the love, support, and laughter of my friends.
