Reuben Kline taking a Break in Silverthorne

Racer update about:
Hi this is Reuben Kline. Its about 5:30. I think the 23rd. I don’t know what the date is. This morning Matt and I put in about hundred miles to get to Silverthorne. That is where I am now. During which time I asked Matt a couple times to go on without me. In great sportsmanship and friendship, he didn’t want to do that. He wanted me to come with him still. I feel like I need to take some time. Stop and collect what I am doing here in Silverthorne. My knee is pretty swollen and my Achilles in the same leg. Its not helping with my overall fatigue value. Anyway, I’m going to hang out in Silverthorne and try to get some rest this evening and see how things go. See what I think about tomorrow. Not feeling very hot at the moment. Thank you all for support. I will call back again. Bye. (recorder time: 2008-0)6-25 18:28:20 EST)

You are an inspiration


I was especially inspired by your comments yesterday about waiting for Matthew Lee and riding with someone rather than against someone. You are a great role model...I read the post to my five & eight year old. We will put out good thoughts this evening for healing your knee & achilles. We wish you the best whatever you decide!
