560-Pound Man Rides Across America
Dear Eric Hites,
Good luck on your ride across America. Sure you call yourself a “Fat Guy” on a mission. But you are more than that.
You are inspiration for all those who want a dream. All those that want to change their lives around, start an adventure, and a try something new. Yeah, you did it for your failing marriage, you did it for health, you did it for your career, but there’s is something bigger there.
You are doing it for the thousands of people watching you. The thousands that want to step outside their comfort zone and do something no one thought was possible.
You might be thinking: “How am I going to do this?” “I’m already exhausted." “My tire is already dented.” “I’m too old.” “I want to stop.”
But don’t stop. Keep going. For you, for love, and for all of us that wish we had the courage to do what you are doing.
So, hey, keep on pedaling.
Sincerely,
Inspired.

That’s amazing @ChazHyland! Congrats! I bet you worked really hard. I’ve alway really looked up to people that cycle. My grandmother was big biker, and still does long bike trips in her old age. Impresses me every day. I feel like I could really get into it!
