The day started out at 4:30 am with a quick run around the neighborhood. Just four days until my fifth half marathon at the initial GE Irving Marathon. I’m so proud to be running with daughters Ashley and Christina who are running the full marathon. This will be the first full marathon for Ashley. Can’t wait to welcome her to the marathon club!!
The temperature has dropped here all day to the low 40s so I think it is only appropriate to reminisce again about our warm Florida vacation! On our last day our hosts Bob and Mary and my wife, Kathryn joined me in participating in a 5K race benefitting the Dress for Success program in Lake Worth. We all wore ribbons honoring the people in my tribute book who are living with Alzheimer’s, are caregivers, and/or are donors to the Alzheimer’s Association.
I met a lovely lady named Carol whose husband lives with Alzheimer’s. We had a wonderful conversation and I’ve added their names to the tribute book. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
And finally….sometimes you get an award for just showing up. Such a fun day!!
On another note…today was day two of the Alzheimer’s Advocacy Forum in Washington D.C. It looks like they are eating well!!
Make it a memorable day!
