Overcame the conditions in the Becel Ride for Heart today!

"Got er dun!"
At the start of the Becel Ride for Heart Sunday morning it was hard not to be emotional.  Here were 13,000 other people braving the cold, rain and wind to ride for someone they cared about who had been struck down by heart disease or stroke. 
While we are coming up on two years since my Dad passed away and time does dull the feelings, that moment before heading off brought it all back.  I'm do this because I miss him terribly.  His sense of humour, story telling and love of life.  Damm!
The email below came a few hours after the ride.  You are welcome.  Thank you for the opportunity to help save lives.
