We highlighted the story of Damian Lopez Alfonso last month (May 8 post, “Cycling IS a team sport”). For another great piece on this courageous athlete and his wonderful support system, please visit the New York Times to see the story by J. David Goodman, “The Long Hard Ride of Damian Lopez Alfonso,” by clicking here.
What comes through loud and clear in this piece while this is a “feel-good” story, it is not all rosy. It is a not a story without pain, suffering, and frustration. Damian has and is experiencing all of this. So are many of his friends and family members. But a story cannot be truly feel-good without adversity. And life is surely the same.
Again, we send our best wishes to Damian.
