El Tour de Tucson

Can a girl be more proud of her man?! Not any more than I am today!

This weekend we made the drive from San Diego to Tucson so Lee could participate in his first El Tour de Tucson. And he ROCKED it!

It was a 112+ mile bike race. Not a bike RIDE. A BIKE RACE! The goal is to do it under 5 hours so that you earn “Platinum” status and have a set of special privileges for future races. Cyclists train hard for this, and come back year after year to complete this race in under 5 hours.

While he didn’t make it in under 5 hours … he did finish it in 5 hours, 12 minutes! A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.!!!

When I found him after the race he was laying down on the sidewalk. He muttered something like “That’s the most difficult physical feat I’ve ever tackled”… then he crawled to the port-a-potty.

I’m so super proud of my husband. He’s come so far in a year.

I love you babe! You’re an inspiration to me and so many others!!!
