My journey has been fantastic and I can’t wait to see where this year goes!

What is your favorite inspirational phrase? Just one??
Doing today what others won’t so tomorrow I can do what others can’t.
Your legs aren’t giving out. Your head is. Keep going.
Run when you can, walk if you need to, crawl if you must, just never give up.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

I named my bike Squirt.
