The individual mileage markers keep ticking by: 57, 109, 237, etc.
Today, I reached 412 which equates with being in Wendover, Nevada.

Today was my most invigorating ride of the Extra Mile America Tour. Usually, I like to pass on a message with this blog, but today, I just want to share a story.

I am pedaling through the Nevada desert. Today I rode from Lovelock to Winnemucca (72 miles).
Two challenges today (besides staying hydrated!):
1. There are no trees in the Nevada desert. Finding shade is only a dream.

I made it over the Sierra Mountains.
On a bike.
The idea sounded far better in my head than when I actually planned it, but the victory was far sweeter than I ever imagined when I made it to the top of the Carson Pass.

On day #1 of the Extra Mile America Tour (www.ExtraMileAmerica.com), I interviewed a guy named Joe Ramos. He is a brilliant "documentary photographer" who has donated countless hours taking thousands of pictures of the homeless in San Francisco (Project Homeless Connect.)
Joe is a very humble man...with great talent. It is in both that I was inspired.

I left Sacramento today for San Francisco and the beginning of the Extra Mile America Tour (www.ExtraMileAmerica.com). I have been planning this tour for so long that the last week or so, I just wanted to get on the bike and start.
When you feel prepared...and ready...your confidence level naturally increases. Another byproduct of confidence is that whole experience becomes much more enjoyable. Afterall, chasing big goals is supposed to be fun...right?

Sometimes, we are so busy "wanting," "wishing" and "striving" towards our BIG goals that we fail to celebrate all the great, small victories in between.
Don't let yourself get caught up in that pattern.
Cherish your small victories. Let them add to your confidence. Let them add to your knowledge that you "created" this victory."

Hesitancy is one thing. That is understandable, and that can be overcome.
But UNwillingness? That is a dream killer.
Never be UNwilling to take action on your dreams. Never be UNwilling to follow-through with every necessary detail. Never be UNwilling to work on what you want a little bit every day.
