Our journey began with a statement - "We should do the Race Across America." "I'm in," came an immediate reply. It wasn't really any more complicated than that.
We are Team Thin Blue Line - three police officers who have accepted the goal of completing RAAM in 2016. Eventually (when we find another poor soul) we'll compete as a four person race team, with a number of support staff helping to make this possible. Over the next three years we'll use this blog to update friends, family and our readers with team information, racer status and discuss the degree to which we've driven each other crazy long before arriving at the start line. We'll also shamelessly solicit sponsors, seek donations for our charity (TBD) and beg you to cheer us on.
Introducing Team Thin Blue Line:
Wil Cochenour - founding member. Bike patrol officer, lead bike patrol instructor. Road cyclist who has completed the Triple Bypass and Denver to Aspen rides.
Alicia Harris - founding member. Bike patrol officer and instructor. Triathlete, ultra-distance runner, road cyclist. Completed Triple Bypass in 2013.
Jim Greer - founding member. Bike patrol program coordinator, road cyclist. Transamerica 1976.
Each of us will do a more thorough bio when our writing turn arrives. We understand the challenge we've accepted.
