Thousands Living Strong - the Legacy of Susan Nelson

For those of you who don't already know, Susan Nelson passed away last night. Susan was the wife of blogger Elden "Fat Cyclist" Nelson. Others are already saying what an inspiration they have both been much better than I could. I am sad, but thanks to them we can all aspire to "Fight Like Susan".

I just wanted to point out that at time of writing the number of comments on Fat Cyclist's blog post about Susan's passing was 1,143. That's just the people who chose to leave a note and who have heard the sad news so far. The number of people she touched and inspired is absolutely staggering, as is the amount of money Elden and Team Fatty have raised for cancer research. The whole family should be insanely proud, and I wish them all the best in this difficult time.

Fight Like Susan.

PS - On Monday August 10, that comment number was up to 2402. Thousands indeed.

Reading the reactions of so many bike bloggers has driven home how much many people their story has touched. That they've inspired so many people to donate really is amazing.
