You know what really grinds my gears (figuratively, not literally)? Not being able to breath properly. Many of you know that I have spent the past year with doctors and medication to figure out why my chest hurts and my breathing sucks when it rains and why I sound like a lewd stalker when I bike, especially on the trail.
I am still seeing a pulmonologist and still trying to find the right remedy, which can be extremely frustrating and maddening. But those of you who know me know that it hasn't stopped me from biking as much as I want to rip my hair out sometimes.
Well, I got the crazy idea that the next step should be...to bike 180 miles (naturally, as one does).
I will be participating in the 2021 Trek Across Maine to raise money to fight lung disease and increase awareness about the importance of lung health.
Lung disease can take someone's breath away, leaving them unable to work, exercise or play. Growing faster than almost any other major illness, lung disease, including lung cancer, asthma and emphysema is the third leading cause of the death in the United States.
Please join me in my efforts to make a difference by making a personal or corporate tax-deductible donation.
Thank you in advance for you support!
