Nobody embraced the opportunity to race Kona more than Colorado’s Tom Bogan. He is on crusade to make sure everyone knows dreams can come true and listen to how close it was that he didn’t get to try and achieve his. His story of almost not racing due to a last second misplacement of a key item is almost as amazing as his story of getting there in the first place!
I’m stumped. How can 303cycling, 303triathlon and 303radio even begin to thank everyone that supports us? Where do we start, who do we include? Everyone of course. Everyone who rides bikes, does triathlons, starts a race, pops a wheelie, runs on a trail, and just has fun doing what so many of us love.
Originally I thought I would like to thank those organizations and people who support us and make 303 even a possibility. But that just seemed too limiting and sort of missing the point. The point being we exists to celebrate pretty much anything that has to do with moving any direction on a bike, in a wetsuit or with running shoes on. But more than that, doing it with a smile, in places that make us smile, in events that challenge us and sometimes it’s just hanging out with our friends and community that makes it all worthwhile.
It’s about the smiles, the relationships and the community. So as Thanksgiving is upon us the entire 303network thanks you, our readers, for simply being part of the journey to share Colorado’s athletes, participants, organizations, races, events, and companies that make it all possible and put smiles on our faces. Please check out this album on Facebook of a few smiles collected over the year!
The 303 Team is forever in gratitude. Happy Thanksgiving.
