In my opinion, Day 3 of any journey is a telling day. It is the day when the adrenaline from the anticipation of the start begins to wear down and you start to feel the fatigue of the road. It is the day when you figure out what works and what needs modifying. It is the day you search for some constancy and a good routine. It is the day when you show yourself and the world just how you respond to adversity. . . Our day 3 was a long one but held within it were so many dimensions of the Team FARA's strength.
Team FARA is closing in on 1000 miles this morning (1/3 of the way to Annapolis). Unbelievable! Keep Crankin’ Team – you are all doing AWESOME.
Kyle and the Team created this blog to keep us all connected their journey and to help raise awareness. So far it has been really successful!

Kyle and Team embarked on this journey to raise awareness for Friedreich’s ataxia. We can all help them and show our support for all of their amazing effort and commitment out on the road. Tell your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers about Team FARA and send them to the blog. What better way to show support for the Team then getting more visitors to this site.
As the Team closes in on 1000 miles, let’s see if we can get to 1000 visitors in a single day.
