On March 14, 22-year old Katie Spotz entered the record books by completing her 3,038 mile solo row across the Atlantic Ocean, after 70 days, 5 hours and 22 minutes. In doing so, she raised over $100,000 for the Blue Planet Network, a nonprofit funding safe drinking water projects for the billion people around the world in need.
Ride for your Lives
Having completed my solo row across the Atlantic Ocean over a year ago, I realized that a year is too long to go without an adventure. Although its tempting not to spend another 70 days alone at sea with sharks, dolphins, and thirty-foot waves, Ive decided to cover another 3,000 miles only this time by land. On June 18th, with my friend Sam, we are taking on a little bicycle trip across the states from Oceanside, CA to Annapolis, MD. From the moment we start, well be riding 24 hours/day until reaching the finish, raising money for a safe drinking water project in Kenya along the way. You didnt expect anything else, now did you?!
