Pushing through the darkness of struggle will always get you to the light of freedom.

I made a goal to ride from San Clemente to Oceanside, CA and back- 52 miles. On the way, I came across a tunnel. I am a recovering alcoholic, determined to get through struggles. The tunnel is like life; light, then darkness, then light again if we persevere past the darkness: repeat. This represents my daily goal to get past any struggle ahead of me.
