Slowly but Surely…

And so we left David’s house the next morning, recharged for another day of cycling, the beauty of his works still singing in our hearts.

That is, until we came upon the first of the many many long long upward slopes…

Your spare change, even if it’s just $1, would help us go further

“I remember one of the very first lessons I learnt from Gordon at Fitness First – Listen to your body (see post here). I remember insisting on completing the last 2 chin-ups; only to end up throwing up immediately after. And to have Gordon remind me sternly – If you don’t listen to your body; your body’s not going to listen to you.” – Val

Easier said than done.

When we had a camera pointing at us all the time
When we know we have the support of so many people and organisations
When we carry on our backs, not just our dreams but the dreams of so many others
And when we were trying to get to our destination before night-fall

It was difficult to get down the bikes and push
To try to get there slowly but surely

“Until Val had to stop and throw up, were we reminded that it is better to get down and slowly push our bikes up the slopes; than to insist on rushing, insist of pedalling, insist on being gung-ho… and then never get there at all.” – Tay

Slowly
But Surely
We will all get there

“加油!”

在臺灣寰島的路上
最常聽到的一句話

也在寰島的騎士們
開車經過的一家大小
甚至提著菜籃的歐巴桑
只要看到我們裝著配備的腳踏車
都會給予我們熱情的鼓舞

也因爲借著大家的力量
我們一步一腳印地“踏”到這裡
拼命拼命地跟自己重復:“加油!”
即使快要不行了
真的不行了
還是“加油!”

忘了翔蔚媽媽說過的:“不要勉強。。。”
忘了家人叮嚀:“累了,就休息。”

忘了油加太滿
就會開始漏油

和大家分享這一段無知
讓大家看到這一份脆弱
想要跟大“家”
尤其是在家裡的大家
說:

“知道了。懂了。我們會好好照顧自己的。”

踏不上,就用牽的
牽不上,就休息吧

一步一腳印
要踏出去
要先照顧自己
