Amazing testimonial from my dear friend and client Mike Ridgeway!

Let’s Do This!

Four years ago I made the best decision of my life. It wasn’t about a job, it wasn’t about a relationship, and it wasn’t about Dream Ride Projects, but that decision would have a profound impact on all three areas of my life.

My body had been ravaged by injuries sustained by three consecutive accidents while bicycling. These were not “career-ending” injuries, but nagging injuries that left scar tissue to linger and cause me chronic pain and the inability to enjoy my passion for bicycling and life in general.

Barbara Searles, my massage therapist and now a dear friend and respected colleague asked me to try a new therapy she had learned called Myofascial Release.

It’s now been four short years since that fateful day I said to Barb, “Let’s do this.” Four years of faith and persistence, four years of healing, both physical and emotional healing from those injuries and even some additional past injuries.

Myofascial Release has done exactly what Barb promised me it would. It has helped my body get back to “healing itself,” making itself right again, and helped given me back my passion for life and my commitment to my community. It’s actually been a short four years, really, in the big scheme of life, A Blip.

But here it is, I’m Back! I’m back doing the things that energize me and support my life’s purpose. And everyone will benefit from that, I promise! Thank You Barb Searles, for your dedication for your craft, and to your clients, like me who do place a little bit of our faith in your commitment to help us heal ourselves, when we chose to make that decision.

This year I’m back on the road to accomplish one of my life’s passionate pursuits, a third Race Across America (RAAM) finish. I’m dedicating my training for RAAM 2013 to Barb Searles, who helped pull me back from an abyss. My therapist, my colleague, and my Friend.

“LET’S DO THIS BARB!”
