Please elaborate on the above question by letting us know what you are doing these days:

Since John passed in January 2019, I have worked on reinventing myself. After 50 years of marriage to John, I wasn't sure where I fit in or who I am. I do have a group of teacher friends with whom I meet monthly and a "widow" group in the neighborhood that do things together but am still searching.
I had a younger man from church mention to me that the MS BIKE 150 was in October this year ( 2020) which entailed cycling 75 miles from Hammond, LA to McComb, Mississippi one day and riding back 75 miles the next.
When the Isolation period started, the seed of that event played on my mind. I have had a cycle for 13 years that I bought from a lifeguard at the camp at the school I taught at for 23 years. I rode it some but didn't really like cleating in.
So, I dusted off the bike and got on it. Haven't looked back! I have had a few problems :( but am planning on doing the bike ride in October . My sister's son, Frank, has MS so I am riding for "Frank" and praying that there will be a Cure for MS in his lifetime. Now riding about 150 miles a week and did a 60 mile yesterday at a pace of 15.4 miles per hour.
Feeling strong and praying the summer heat won't get in my way.
If you would like to donate to the "Cure for MS" and sponsor me as a rider, please contact me at ellenshartline@gmail.com.


Lots of moving around but have been in New Orleans area since 1985. Love to play!!!!!!!!!
Enjoy teaching young people.
Now in retirement and was looking forward to traveling with John but our plans don't always work out the way we want.
Since his death in January 2019 and with no family in the area, I have learned to pretty self-sufficient but can't say I like it . Health wise I am doing very well. Too much energy!
