Reaching a Goal

Rest Day today, I was thinking about family.

A funny thing happened last night, I reached the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research fundraising goal. Now, as I understand it, I am supposed to participate in some sort of footrace. As you know, I am always up for a challenge. Is this running contest going to involve other people? I have to let you know that I once ran from my front door all the way to my mailbox. So beware, fellow footracers, I am fully engaged!

I cannot thank all of the people who contributed to this effort with mere bloggy words. I look forward to seeing each and every one of you to thank you in person. If that is not possible, please know that your generosity goes beyond words. I will be thinking of each and every one of you as I put one foot in front of the other over 40K times this weekend. What is that you say, the footrace is 26.2 miles? I am ready, you helped me get ready. Thanks again!

Last run around the lake yesterday. Favorite song today, Gonna Fly Now ( Rocky Theme) performed by DeEtta Little and Nelson Pigford.

The Lake, the last time.

The Lake, the last time.

  1. Please don’t stop the blog! I will miss the stories and pictures. Perhaps you can blog on about other things. Not science though. 🙂


    • That is so nice. Thank you for your kind words.
