We took our first short break about an hour later at a gas station in Mountain View. About an hour after getting back on the road the sun began to peek through the clouds, there was still no wind. The road was a wonderful 4 lane road with a great shoulder. There were some steep and crazy kinks in the road, I thought this particular sign was funny!
It's been a beautiful day, we are 83 miles further down the road! Russ has ridden 1943 miles since we started, that is hard to believe, isn't it? When you think of the WHOLE distance, it seems overwhelming; but he has taken it a day at a time, a mile at a time, a hill at a time, pushing one pedal at a time. Sometimes when we face things that are challenging or difficult, we can feel overwhelmed...at least I do, anyway. When we trust God and take things one day at a time, one hour at a time, one step at a time, we find He gives us the strength to do what we need to do. I pray you feel the strength the Lord is giving you to face what is in front of you now. Thank you for your prayers that sustain us!
