You Haven't Seen That?! Part II

As mentioned earlier, I'm not the most educated t.v. and movie watcher.  I rarely get it when people reference an incredibly popular scene.  I usually just smile and stare blankly when this happens, then embarrassingly admit that I have ZERO clue as to what they're talking about.  Yup, I'm that girl, y'all.

To continue my earlier discussion about things I haven't seen that most of the world has, I thought I'd list a few movies that I haven't ever seen.  Ever.

All of the Star Wars Movies
The Godfather
Lord of the Rings (I tried, but just couldn't get into it!)
Gone with the Wind
Monty Python and The Holy Grail
Any of the Rocky Movies
The Waterboy
Rudy
Any of the Harry Potter Movies

Just to name a few.  Some I'm embarrassed to say I haven't seen and others, I just don't really care to.  I have been trying to broaden my movie knowledge lately.  J and I have recently added to my list of WATCHED movies all of the Bourne movies, all of the Die Hard movies and all of the Resident Evil movies.  

See, I'm not that bad.  :-)

Event Recap: A Novel

This will be a long one. 

Mostly, for me. I want to savor every moment of what was the biggest physical (and emotional) challenge I've taken on. I want to relish this great accomplishment. If you're into small novels, sit back, grab a cup of coffee (or wine depending on the time of day) and come with me back through Helen & Noah's BIG Adventure.

First, I have to say that our team of people was INCREDIBLE. I couldn't have asked for a better, more perfect group of humans. They played every "role" perfectly. I'll name them and give a general description of what they were around to do. However, I cannot possibly describe them or what they gave me any further. Simply put: I wouldn't have gotten through this without each of them.

Naomi - Noah's Mom
Stacy - my coach
Peter - mechanic/sherpa/human compass
Josh & Nic - our film crew

Day 1: The Intro
We got Noah into the trailer and learned quickly that zip ties would be our friends during this process. We a…

DO.

We have 30 days. I can't believe it.

This journey has been so eye opening on every front. The training has been the easiest (cannot believe I'm saying that). The mental part the toughest (that's not surprising in the least). And the financial part harder than I thought.

We are halfway to our $10,000 goal and that scares me since we are so close. It's easy for people to like, love and share things on social media for us, which I so appreciate. We live in a time when "good deed" and cute animal videos are shared all over the place as palette cleansers for what's going on in this sometimes scary world we live in. The issue that I'm finding since I'm living it, is that there is no genuine connection. Watch this video for 2 mins. Get teary, LOVE it, share it, go drink coffee. Repeat. 

I'm guilty of this myself.

It's easy to glaze over it. And when I say "it" in this particular instance, I mean our story and our goal: to help provide exper…

P.J.

Sunday was a massive training day. A few weeks ago, Cindy Snyder reached out to me via Facebook offering me the chance to train with her son, P.J. P.J. is 32 and has Angelman Syndrome and an incredibly accomplished athlete. We were connected through Dennis with Athletes in Tandem here in Colorado. Dennis is the guy who sparked this entire adventure idea.

We made plans to have a training ride with P.J. and to invite the local community to come ride with in hopes of promoting inclusion, showing how it's done and gaining donations to Helen & Noah's Big Adventure. It would be the most I'd hauled at 104 pounds. The trailer is 32lbs, P.J. weighs 72lbs.

I was scared sh*tless. My training leading up to this had been with a max of 45lbs. There were a few rides where I was climbing when I was like, "How in the HELL am I going to do this with even more weight. I'm going to embarrass myself in front of a group of people who are there to support us."

So, I took a logical…
