Dear inventor of the Plank: WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?

Did mankind hurt you in some horrible way?  Is it your life mission to destroy humanity?  I remember the instructor saying something along the lines “ok, now it’s time to plank.”  My first thought was, cool, pirates!  Walking the plank doesn’t sound so bad … I mean, they can’t actually hurt us in here, can they?

YES THEY CAN!!!!

Let me be the first to warn you: If you’ve never planked before (if that’s even a term), your instructor is a sadist and you’ll never stand up straight again.
You may be asking, “So, Aaron, how’s week 2 of training for the Bicycle Adventure going?”  I think the paragraph above says it all.  I’m not sure if Moses had my instructor in mind when he wrote “Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the Lord you God is the one who goes with you…” but I am comforted knowing God is with me every step of this journey.

And I’m grateful that you’re traveling with me.  Let me encourage you, if you’re thinking about signing up for the Bike Adventure, do so.  If you need encouragement to stay the course, let me encourage you.  And if you want to help by sponsoring, go to my page and sponsor me.  We’re in this together.
