What a nice treat during my day…Bill Walton came to visit me. I met Bill a few years back. He is a huge cycling fan and avid rider himself. He likes the long rides. It’s not unusual to see him on a century ride here and there. He is close friends with Chris Kostman, Chief Adventure Officer of AdventureCORPS. He comes out to the AdventureCORPS events and that how I got to know him.
I remember at the Furnace Creek 508, Bill Walton was crewing for a team (a huge selfless act) and he came alongside me in the crew vehicle and starting talking to me. I was over 300 miles and over 20 hours into the race (508 miles). I was feeling one of the lulls during the long event and just having a conversation with him lifted my spirits.
I am fortunate to have Bill Walton as friend and I look forward to many more years of his friendship. He is such and easy-going guy it’s easy to like him. I hope to see him at the Mount Laguna Bicycle Classic April 21 (registration closes April 16)
