10 years ago tonight I was a guest at the British Consulate in San Francisco as they wished Jane luck on her ride across America. That journey was life changing for us all. For Jane the first 3 weeks were the last that she had in her life being relatively well. To watch her life deteriorate whilst simultaneously complete a truly super human achievement will be the things that I take with me until I die.
Ten years later finds me in Portsmouth about to catch a ferry to Caen to continue our journey to Rio. There is nothing that I will ever be able to do in life that could come within a country mile of what Jane did.
It’s hard to watch someone you love die, but it was an absolute honor to share that journey with her.
For me this ride to Rio whilst a physical challenge is done in honor of the greatest physical achievement i have ever witnessed.
