The point of all the fitness stuff

I’ve had a great summer. I got to do the MS Bike Tour from Grand Bend to London and back again the last weekend in July. I was able to join my corporate team and met all kinds of great humans.

I also got to ride with my partner Michel and our longtime friend Al.

The weather was wonderful and the route beautiful. The rest stops were plentiful and there was lots of road support.

For a few stretches I rode with some of my colleagues. One of the best parts was staying at the dorms and socializing with all the lovely humans. My friend, colleague and mentor Bonnie is an avid cyclist and convinced me to join the fundraising committee. I loved seeing that side of her and we had many months of fun leading up to the ride and many laughs the whole weekend. Thank you Bonnie!

I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and have already signed up for next year.

I also had 2 weeks of vacation with my family. We did amusement parks, camping and toured about Washington, D.C.

Sometimes we over did it a bit and got tired. When that happened I’d take a picture just to remind us all of the fun we were having:

We averaged 21,000 steps per day and we were all able to keep that pace up for 10 days.

The point of all the fitness stuff I do is to be able to continue to connect with people and have great experiences.


There were many great memories made and I’m thankful I could do so much this summer.

Here’s to September bringing more moments of joyful movement with awesome humans!
