A Dream Worth LivingCompleted the first day of the 2014 Tour Divide race Even with a year of training and preparation the the physical and mental challenges of the race pushed him further than he thought possible During the 2700 mile race from Canada to Mexico he climbed mountain after mounta. Andy takes us along on his divide ride His writing conveys how it feels physically emotionally and psychologically to ride hour after hour day and night after day and night with minimal sleep He's sustained by whatever food and beverages are available along the way spectacular views personal epiphanies random acts kindness from trail angels and occasional phone calls to his family Andy doesn't whine about it He sets aside significant physical pain and discomfort and repeatedly harsh conditions to keep moving forward He is motivated by the commitment he's made to the race to himself and his family He never loses sight of the sacrifices his family makes to allow him to train and race the divide I gave the book four stars because the end seemed rushed Perhaps the epilogue could be expanded upon so the reader better understands what Andy learned from his adventure
