  1. Reminds me of how lucky I am to have Jim in my life, he has been such a great role model and friend! I’m fortunate that we have conversations like this every time we get together.

    Jim, touched on it at the end.. maybe families just do what families do… and the Slauson family has definitely made my life a better and healthier one: mentally, physically, emotionally, socially, financially, and much more, that’s for sure!

    In the last few months I’ve finally started to find a good balance… almost took a step back from cycling and said there’s more to life than bike racing. Since then, many aspects of life have seemed more enjoyable and sustainable, even riding the bike!

    Can’t enphasize enough how lucky I am to have Jim and his family in my life. So excited that others now have a chance to catch a glimpse of his wise words and hear about his dedication to life long learning!
