Mary Collier ending a Good Day in Silverthorne

Racer update about:
Hey Everyone, its Mary. I’m calling in from Silverthorne, CO. Today, was an absolutely wonderful day. It was good day. I felt great today, physically and mentally, everything. The whole game just kind of came together today. It was good. I ran into Dave Nice out on the trail. The route goes pretty close to his parent’s property where he is working right now and it sounds like he is recovering. It was really good seeing him. He cheered me on for a couple of miles. We some good conversation. Dropped down to the CO River which was absolutely beautiful. Made it feel like I was in the southwest. Which was great, because that means I am in the south so I’m getting closer to Mexico. I really feel like I am going to pull this off now. Things are going great. I got in early tonight so I’m going to take off early in the morning. Have a good night. (recorder time: 2008-07-01 23:01:14 EST)

Early to bed, early to rise, makes Mary the queen of the ride. I just love to hear your call ins. Have a great night. Sherry O.


Woohoo Mary! Way to go! I was hoping you would make it to Silverthorne today. We will keep ringing our bells for you. I think Mike is hoping to pull an Andy Buchanan and ride along with you for awhile on your final stretch. I hope that pans out. Keep on pedalin'

All our best,
Tina & family


Glad to hear you had such a great up and hope tomorrow is even better. All of us blue dot junkies are cheering you on.
