    Day 7 of 22 days of doing 22 push-ups a day to raise awareness and donations for The National Alliance to End Veteran Suicide @NA2EVS.
    I had the pleasure of doing mine with one of the greatest humans I've met, Shmuel @shmula1 (Shmulik, Shmulie Avital) owner of @SpiegelNYC restaurant and organizer of Spiegel Two Wheel Tuesday's and last night a special Fundraiser for Ovarian Cancer Awareness month and supporting women fighting this horrible disease, including a very special women to Shmulik who is currently fighting Ovarian Cancer.
    Today I nominate a wonderful new brother on twos and fellow @east_coast_ducati_riders Shawn Kee @skee358, who was supposed to do today's set with me and finally show me some good form to avoid injury but alas he was surely held up at work where he engineers military defense systems and equipment to keep our service men and women safe, and strong, and in turn protect all of us!

    The number 22 suicides a day is a statistic that is contested, it's not really known for sure the exact amount of veteran suicides that actually occur per day. But the heart of the truth is something deeper than a statistic, veterans in our country need our help and support.
    Please join me in making a donation of $22.00 to www.na2evs.org to help veterans and their families directly with PTSD issue support, building homes, helping homeless vets with warm clothing and supplies, etc.

    Most of ALL thanks Everyone for the support! πŸ™ŒπŸ½ #Lategram #ShowUsYour22 #veteranawareness #veteransuicide #helpeachother #NeverForgetYouRicky #SeeYouInHeaven #FreedomIsNotFree #USA #Spiegel #TwoWheelTuesday #EastCoastDucatiRiders #Ducati #Motorcycles #WomenWhoRide #NYC #Boston #BostonStronger

    Day 6 of 22 days of doing 22 push-ups a day to raise awareness and donations for The National Alliance to End Veteran Suicide @NA2EVS.
    I'm doubling up on nominees again today and tapping into my extended Tri Huracan familia of amazing Ironmen and women.

    First the amazing fearless leader of @TriHuracan, Ismael Rodriguez who has been my inspiration for many things including inspiring me to and being co-frolicker in the water for our New Years Day Polar Bear Plunge and who just continues to add some much good health greatness to the world with his coaching, team and own amazing Ironmen and he just swam 6.5 miles in the Hudson!!! Second I nominate TriHuracan IronHombre Leo Perales @taker17 who is probably going to get the award for most times completing 22 push-ups nominations! Leo is amazing and teaches us all how to get younger every year, is an amazing ironman triathlete and an impairs final family man with the best wife ever, whom I never forget seeing run side by side and cheering me on for my first NYC marathon!

    Hopefully both of you Coach Ish and Leo can keep this torch passed on this great cause that can hopefully help save the lives of at risk veterans in the name of those who were not saved.

    The number 22 suicides a day is a statistic that is contested, it's not really known for sure the exact amount of veteran suicides that actually occur per day. But the heart of the truth is something deeper than a statistic, veterans in our country need our help and support.
    I was nominated by the amazing and serious guns woman, @GraceRoselliStudio and yikes I tired to make my last push-up deeper for her and will keep working it! And, Grace was nominated by our amazing sister-on-twos Nicole Rose

    Please join me in making a donation of $22.00 to www.na2evs.org to help veterans and their families directly with PTSD issue support, building homes, helping homeless vets with warm clothing and supplies, etc.

    Day 5 of 22 days of doing 22 push-ups a day to raise awareness & donations for The National Alliance to End Veteran Suicide @NA2EVS.
    Today, I'm doubling up on nominees because I'm luckily enough to know so many amazing people and especially Ironmen and Women. So I'm nominating two fellow @TriLatinoTriathlonClub teammates who are also military veterans.

    First I nominate my brother-from-another-mother and "primo" James Diaz @jimmydtris who is a Marines veteran (Oorah!), currently an @NYPD officer whom I thank today on National Thank a Police Officer Day and every day for his debit nand who just completed the @MontTremblantIronman13 competition!!! Whoa and I still feel lazy for riding by him at Bear Mountain last month on a motorcycle as he did a long bike! And to sweeten the deal, without pressure I saw the better half Diaz, Martita @geodestiny join in on all or most of these 22 days too. 😘

    Second I nominate another amazing veteran Jerusha Ramos @j_roosh is about to complete her first Ironman competition!!
    Totally ok to start these push-ups right away or else whenever-I.e. after the ironman race!

    Hopefully both of you James and Jerusha can keep this torch passed on this great cause that can hopefully help save the lives of at risk veterans in the name of those who were not saved.

    These push-ups can be done all at once or in several sessions broken up during the day. And, GO!

    Today I did my push-ups on some very tired arms following my long run for my marathon training to run the NYC marathon for the 3rd consecutive year and I'm as evidenced by my run today I'm so excited to cross that finish line again, universe and God willing. And, my run was indeed nothing short of amazing with one of my highest runner's highs, high-fiving so many strangers out there running/working hard and even giving a thumbs up and awesome job shout out to @runmeb 2014 Boston marathon winner (who's be over my house in 2012 after he was Marshall of the Boston marathon and 2009 NYC marathon winner!

    Day 4 of 22 days of doing 22 push-ups a day to raise awareness and donations for The National Alliance to End Veteran Suicide @NA2EVS.
    For my push-ups today I got some extra help and encouragement from family with my cousins Ben and Kordula's sweet little Levi and @ytalia809 not-so-little-anymore and sweet Taylah (who can do better push-ups than me :-)) Today I couldn't be at my TriLatino team's end of season barbecue and so in true slacker trainee style I nominate the best coach ever, Coach Danny Artiga now that he finally is getting a coaching break but can hopefully keep this torch passed on this great cause that can hopefully help save the lives of at risk veterans in the name of those who were not saved.

    These push-ups can be done all at once or in several sessions broken up during the day. And, GO!

    The number 22 suicides a day is a statistic that is contested, it's not really known for sure the exact amount of veteran suicides that actually occur per day. But the heart of the truth is something deeper than a statistic, veterans in our country need our help and support.
    And all of my push-ups are for Ricky, like another big brother and best friend to my brother Alani, and all the other veterans who fell into despair and took their own lives. We love them, will never forget the and will work to protect our veterans still here with us ❀️ I was nominated by the amazing and serious guns woman, Grace Roselli who was nominated by our amazing sister-on-twos Nicole Rose

    Please join me in making a donation of $22.00 to www.na2evs.org to help veterans and their families directly with PTSD issue support, building homes, helping homeless vets with warm clothing and supplies, etc.

    Day 3 of 22 days I will be doing 22 push-ups a day to raise awareness and donations for The National Alliance to End Veteran Suicide. And duh my phone died but yay for kind people, and this Battery Park Patrolman Ron willing to film me and email me the video!

    Today I nominate my dearest and darling, Glenn Donald Hansen, who is the epitome of helping others and American flag ladden himself to join me in these 22 days of 22 push-ups for the amazing cause that can hopefully help save the lives of at risk veterans in the name of those who were not saved.

    These push-ups can be done all at once or in several sessions broken up during the day. And, as I was told, though I clearly need them, and don't get any ideas Glenn, "No chick push-ups" please. And, GO!

    Day 2 of 22 days I will be doing 22 push-ups a day to raise awareness and donations for The National Alliance to End Veteran Suicide @NA2EVS.
    Today I nominate Ali Fangueiro @iberian_alice the other biggest warrior I know to join me in these 22 days of 22 push-ups to push on to through together and to remind us all keep perspective of who and what matters, which is surely protecting our fragile and precious lives, including those of the many and tireless veterans who have and still do protect us.

    Finally posting this tonight, 12 hours later and it's long but it will not be this long nor 'weak' going forward (and next time maybe before my swim!)! For the next 22 days I will be doing 22 push-ups a day to raise awareness and donations for the National Alliance to End Veteran Suicide @na2evs The number 22 suicides a day is a statistic that is contested, it's not really known for sure the exact amount of veteran suicides that actually occur per day. But the heart of the truth is something deeper than a statistic, veterans in our country need our help and support.
    I'm especially doing these over the next 22 days for a special person, Ricky Smith, my brother Alani's childhood best friend who committed suicide as a veteran. We will never forget you Ricky, we love you always and can't wait to get your very big hug when I see you again! ❀️ For the next 22 days I will other family, friends, Moto family and triathlon team friends (coaches?!?) to pick up the baton of 22 push-ups for 22 days.
    I was nominated by the amazing and serious guns woman, @GraceRoselliStudio who was nominated by our amazing sister-on-twos Nicole Rose

    Day #1 I nominate @JessicaDarragh, my childhood best friend who knew Ricky and is one of our country's amazing service members, a veteran herself and still serving in reserves as a mom and wife to an amazing Firefighter.
    These push-ups can be done all at once or in several sessions broken up during the day. And, as I was told, though I clearly need them "No chick push-ups" please. And, GO!

    We will never ever forget. In memory today of all those brave men and women in NYC, VA, PA and DC who lost their lives and now watch over us.
    United We Stand. Divided we Fall.

    Light always conquers darkness.

    I had the honor and pleasure of riding with hundreds of other other motorcycles and arriving at Ground Zero at midnight today, 9/11 in tribute of all those lost as a passenger with my Darling Glenn keeping me rolling without my own two wheels these days.

    Love is love and hate cannot overcome it.

    Well Dear Friend, Family and strangers nothing in this life is permanent, including life!

    My heart is a bit heavy but still full of joy for all the memories, miles, safe passage and so many, many amazing People and now close friends I have met because of "CarlaBruni," my first ever motorcycle, my brand spanking new 2012 @Ducati Monster 796 and best purchase I've made in my life. Unfortunately she was stolen from a motorcycle parking spot in Stuyversant Town in the East Village last week.
    I'm truly going to miss her and hoped I'd have her forever but here's to hopefully getting another great motorcycle and dare I say (and wish it) even a very special track bike. Luckily full coverage insurance can now work its magic.
    There is some SERIOUSLY bad karma coming to the person(s) who stole a bike with a MELIS plate but that's all up to the universe!
    Two Morals here:
    1) Moto friends don't leave Motos on NYC streets unlocked and
    2) ALL friends remember life can give just as it can take so enjoy every second, every single one! β€οΈπŸπŸ’ƒπŸ»β€οΈ All of the amazing, professional photos in my collage are compliments of amazing artist and dear friend Grace Roselli Β© www.graceroselli.com
