I want to be like her. Ladies – there are no excuses!

A friend sent me a link to an article on CNN today…..The headline caught my eye immediately .  Of course I thought how very Cycle Chic!  Here it is….

Biking 150 Miles for a cause — in a dress and heels.

And then I read further.  This person who is biking in a dress and heels for a cause?  She’s no 20-something who’s been training for a year.  She’s no IronMan.  She’s a beautiful 84-yr old woman on a single-speed purple vintage cruiser.  It makes me think that when we THINK we can’t do something – when we THINK that something is hard  or it will take too long or it’s just inconvenient – that really it’s all a bunch of poppycock.  The ability to do and to dream is nestled right inside our head and our hearts.  It’s up to us to see it differently.

So check her out – this woman, my new hero and click here (or on the headline above) to read the full article.
