It's Time!!


As some of you may know, Nik and I (and a bunch of friends) are participating in the Fight For Air climb for the American Lung Association on Saturday. I am so excited for this! I have been "training" for more than a month, and I think it will be a great time with friends, for a good cause. We are team Slingshot and we are the first to climb (9:03 am). Anyone who might be interested in coming to watch me/us finish is more than welcome to ride the elevator to the top floor and enjoy the food and music while you wait! I am only shooting for one time up. Others on the team are going for as many as 5 times. More power to them. I just want to get to the top. Lisa and I did the stair machines (me for the first time this year) on Monday, and after 55 flights I called it quits. I figure, that is almost twice what I will be climbing on Saturday, so should be good. It makes me feel good to be doing this. It is the first really physical thing I have done since finishing my treatment. It's a mile stone. I am looking forward to taking my time, and taking lots of pictures on the way up. I very much appreciate those who have donated to my cause, and I am making one final call to anyone else who might be interested in sponsoring either me or Nik. FYI- I am only $30 away from my fundraising goal!




Go Team Slingshot!!
