My buddies on Team4HIVHope are rockin' the road as they race across America on their bikes!
Spare a thought for them as they battle saddle sores, the elements served up by Mother Nature, and the lack of sleep inherent in racing non-stop across the continent.
They are currently at about the halfway mark and no doubt their bodies -- and minds -- are starting to feel the effort of the previous days. Exhaustion and pain must be abundant.
But only outweighed by their passion to get to the finish line -- to experience the joy and relief of accomplishing a huge goal that most people, regardless of HIV status, would never even consider attempting.
I'm truly astounded -- and deeply inspired -- by these guys, and continue to send them good vibes as they show the world that HIV+ people can attain extraordinary achievements.
Go Boys Go!
