One of the things I love most about having a physical location versus just a website are the people I meet.
This is Lauren Martin. She stopped in earlier this week with a whole group of young adults that were biking across the U.S. to raise money for cancer.
The city had just finished the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo parade and I had stayed open late for the event. It was now 8:30 pm and I stepped out to close up shop for the night. As I was closing the door I see this group of college-age kids walking across the street and the most enthusiastic lady go, “awwwwww!”. I giggled and shouted out to her to come on in. She skipped across the street and ran on in. I love to be around enthusiastic people. We talked for awhile as she shared about their trip across the U.S. on their bikes.
I am always so encouraged to see young adults going above and beyond to experience adventure and also looking beyond themselves. So I say to Lauren: “Way to go Girl!”. I’m proud of you and I wish you success and safety on the rest of your adventure.
