Absolutely amazing story! Thanks for sharing it!
My dad passed away in '04 from a brain tumor. Although he wasn't much for motorcycles (or any motorized vehicles for that matter!) he was an ultra marathon runner and triathlete. No Ironman's like yourself as running was more his gig but he usually put a couple of olympic length ones away a year. Bike riding was more of a means of transport, but an enjoyable one.
He put almost 60k miles on his feet in 20 years so we'll call him an ADVrunner.
He would have loved this RR!
Thanks again, keep it coming!
