I have the most inspiring story to share with you.
On our drive home from a weekend trip, we stopped at Hoosier Pass. While we were there we saw this couple on a tandem bike. I’m a huge people person, so naturally, I started up a conversation with them!
My husband Tim and I rode a tandem bike that same weekend so I had to share. The couple then explained to us that they are riding the tandem bike from Oregon to Florida.
Let me repeat that – Oregon to Florida. You heard that right, this couple, Tom and Karen, are riding a tandem bike across the United States. They started on August 19th and will arrive in Florida around November 15th .
I was amazed – seriously how cool? And I had to ask, WHY?
They told me that they planned this trip for 3 years. They told their bosses they were taking off for 3 months to see the USA. Karen had never seen other places besides her hometown in upstate NY. They flew to Oregon to start their trip!
Tom and Karen had dream and they are living it out to achieve their best life in 2020! You can follow their journey across the US on IG @momandtomxc !
I had to ask myself – How does one prepare for riding a tandem bike across 1000’s of miles for 90 days?! In response, Tom shared this “honestly we aren’t in the best shape but what keeps us up and going every day to start our ride is our MINDSET, to prepare, start, and finish – it’s all MENTAL. Our mind controls everything we do in life.”
🙌🏼 Yes 🙌🏼 Yes 🙌🏼
So many people wait for the “perfect” time to change their lives or try something new…. when they are fit enough, rich enough, or have enough time. No time like the present to live out our dreams.
When you change your mindset, you change your body and your life!
