    Hello, my RFTW Family,

    I had shoulder surgery 3 weeks ago and am unable to join you all this year. I’ll be following SITREPS and praying for safety as you all traverse the country.

    2016 was my FNG year and it was an amazing experience. 2018 I was just a participant but I made my way to DC and completed the mission in October.   I wish you all the best as you once again, or possibly for the first time complete the mission.

    Sloke,  sorry about the shoulder surgery, but hope you are healing well.  I am a FNG this year and am really pumped about it.  Get healed up!!

    Thanks Pelican, that’s what family is about.  We leave nobody behind and ride for those who can’t. N25Sportz, soak it all in and “be present” for everything.  There are moments on the run which will impact you regardless of your perspective, but if you press into the experience it will be so much more meaningful.  Keep the rubber side down!

      Amen to that Hoofer!  I’m in the market for a leadership role for 2020.  We’ll ride again then for sure.
