Today’s Memory

Friends,

Today I passed the 300 mile mark in my journey to 1000 miles in 2013!  Please know that your support means the world to me as we all strive to fight Alzheimer’s and provide support for care givers.

So much has happened since my last post in March – vacation in Florida, two races, new donors and tribute names, tragedies in Boston and West, Texas and training for a 5th  half marathon.  I’ll get you up to date in the next few posts.  Thanks for hanging in with me!!

300

Make it a memorable day!

Today’s Memory

Hello everyone!  It has been a while since I posted.  There just hasn’t been enough time in the day lately it seems.  That and an extreme case of writer’s block.  Those are my excuses and I am going to stick by them!!  I’ve tried to keep moving forward with the running but my body is still fighting it.  My plan is to fight back and win!

Luckily, I have wonderful friends who have invited my wife Kathryn and I to come visit.  That is what we need – a vacation in sunny Florida!  So we are packing up the tribute book, ribbons and running gear for a quick trip to the beach.  And because I am obsessed – I’ll be running in the Dress for Success 5K in Lake Worth on Saturday!  The exciting part for me is that my wife and friends, Bob and Mary Isenbek, will be participating as well!  Not only are Bob and Mary amazing friends…they are also donors and care givers.  Exceptional!!

Make it a memorable day!

Today’s Memory

A quick run this morning at 5am to get the blood flowing through the legs.  Ashley wants me to do a long run with her on Saturday as she trains for her first full marathon.   I accept her challenge as I can’t let her get too far ahead of me!!  I couldn’t get the Thrift Shop song by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis out of my head as I was pounding the pavement so…. I ran to the thrift shop down the road…and I looked incredible!!

On my February 26th Retirement blog I challenged all of you to complete the following sentence:

Old running shoes never die, they just……..

And you all brought the jokes!!!  I couldn’t choose between two of the entries so I will donate $20 to the Alzheimer’s Association in the name of each of the co-winners:

  1. Bob Isenbek – Old running shoes never die, they just……..lose their soles
  2. Phyllis Waite – Old running shoes never die, they just……..take a hike

I’m also going to donate an additional $60 for the other six entries for a total of $100.  Thanks for playing…I enjoyed your creativity!!

Make it a memorable day!
