    The Great Ride

    "You need to add a motorcycle run to the Corporate Challenge." At first I couldn't imagine that Mark Tormehlon, City of Richardson Fleet Technician, was talking to me. A motorcycle run? As part of an Olympic-style competition? Really? It was already July and with the games starting in August, it was too late for any additions to the calendar. That was back in 2009 and when 2010 rolled around - Mark did too...in July. I explained it was simply too late to try and add an "event" to the calendar, but we also visited on WHY he thought we should add a motorcycle run to the Challenge. What I learned in that conversation was remarkable! What Mark learned was not to wait until July!
