Busy times...

It's been a while since I posted, and to be fair, most of my recent posts were leveraging Steve's great writing. The Ironman for Heidi was such a great idea and a hit on so many levels. As of today 168 people signed up for the event on the Facebook Group, and i'm sure many more were following on the blog. The Hope for Heidi page is now showing $12,665.00 in donations, which is up $3000 from when Steve first conceived the idea, and since the site does not update donations automatically, there's probably more to be posted after this long holiday weekend.

As you probably know, with ALS, there is nothing we can do to prevent the dieing of neurons and the subsequent wasting of muscles, so the Ironman is a fitting "opposite" in terms of demonstrating the possibilities of human strength and endurance. This obviously does not end here and as long as Steve, or any other Ironman athlete wants to participate "4 Heidi", it will go on. Thanks again to Steve and Laura, and to everyone else that supported and contributed.

Peace out for now.
