Most times I’ve come home from work so far this year, my wife asks me the same thing: “What are you doing for a workout?”

My first instinct is to tell her: “I’m taking today off, honey. I’m tired. But I’ll get back on it tomorrow.”

But my wife, knowing very well that my Air Force Physical Fitness Test is coming, isn’t much for lame excuses or my predictable cop outs. She wants me to choose how, not if, there will be exercise.

PORTLAND, Maine (AFPN) — After pedaling their bicycles along 170 miles of Maine roads, 18 Maine Air National Guard Cycle Team members, dressed in red, white and blue cycling outfits, coasted to the end of their three-day journey Aug. 20 in front of the local minor league baseball stadium here.

Their trek started in Bangor Aug. 18 and they headed south, stopping along the way to celebrate and promote the 60th anniversary of the Air National Guard with the public.
The event was part of Air Force Week New England Aug. 17 to 26, which is celebrating the Air Force’s birthday with special events in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine.

Flat tires, hills, and rain did not stop them from informing the public about the Air National Guard and the Air Force.
