More words of wisdom with Fred, Joe Sweeney and I.

           This week Fred not only interviewed me about my progress in training and fundraising but he also had a long time rider of 24 years, Joe Sweeney on his show.  

     Joe's story was typical of most long time riders, he had a relative with MS and heard about the ride and a million years later he continues to carry out this mission for the good of all those afflicted with this horrible disease.  He was one of 5 people to be riding in all 25 years of the Bike To The Bay.  He is a remarkable man!

      After 5 weeks of Fred following my progress you would think Fred has nothing left to ask me and my story would be covered, but somehow he still wants me back.

     I really think he has me there for two reasons: one, as he said he's training vicariously through me, which is a whole lot easier than getting on the bike himself, lol, and two: he needs material for his show And I appear to be a good target.

     I know it's all in fun and anything for the entertainment of others, I say.  After I was finished giving him my weekly update I made sure to remind the riders that they needed to pick up their riding packets that day.  How was I supposed to know Fred had already made that point three times earlier in the show??  It's not like I have nothing better to do than listen to him ramble on,lol.  When I essentially let him know this he jokingly said there are many farm fields on the ride and he would have to go whipping by me to make sure I go landing in one.

     Now the joke's on him because he has spent so much time riding vicariously through me that I'm pretty sure  I won't have to worry about him passing by me on the ride:)  I may eat my words but If I do end up in a corn field I can be grateful for one thing, and that is the old saying "knee high by the forth of July" and this is only June; at least I won't be lost forever!!

     Seriously though, Fred has a good heart and this is a man who genuinely cares, so I'll take anything he dishes out!

   Listen to our interview:)

* Don't forget to go to Bob Evans this Wednesday and mention Team leapfrog or Team sitting Bull and 15% will go to our teams!! 

Have a great day!!
