Sat. 21st. Sgt. Sarah Lee--a vicious cycle. Last May, I began a 4,000+ mile cycling journey across America that I named A Vicious Cycle.  I want to Honor my fallen Brothers and Sisters with this mission. My hope is to unite or even inspire other Veterans who feel alone or at war inside like I do.  And bringing awareness to Veteran suicide has been specifically important to me on a very personal level.  2,400 miles into my journey, a large truck forced me off the road, causing me to crash and injure my knee near the front range of the Rocky Mountains.  I've been home training and re-strengthening since. This June 2018, I will return to Colorado and finish what I started, crossing the Golden Gate Bridge by August. see flyers here
