Join The Team!

Bench in Central Park, New York:
"It is necessary to dig deep into oneself to discover the hidden grain of steel called will" -Ryan Shay
(I always come back to this when I feel overwhelmed)
I appreciate the funds donated so far! This challenge still has a way to go in terms of getting donations collected. Please don't be shy and join the team! If you have ever donated to a cause, like LiveStrong, donating is the same way. Just click on the donation link and follow instructions. The same goes for joining the team. Just add your name on the team page, and set a goal. Maybe its $250, or maybe it's $2000....

You can also let people know you are going to run in the Austin Marathon, Half Marathon, or 5K on 2-14-10. I cannot pay for your entry fee, but if you decide to run to raise money, just join the team, and tell people you are running for this cause and those who raise $200 plus will receive a shirt representing Running For Ryan for Wounded Warriors, and wear it as part of the team on race day.

Any questions can be emailed to:
It's a great time of the year to support our military and their families. Remember, the Wounded Warrior Project helps empower seriously wounded veterans who often lose hope when returning from overseas. It also helps families, who are often full time caregivers by doing things such as weekend retreats. Here families can relax for a few days and encourage each other as they share similar challenges now and in the future.
Last couple of days were good runs. Warming up for another 15 mile run. This time on Sat., as that's a day I can have Max hang out with grandma for a bit. The training is not routine, but definitely fitting in runs whenever I can. Still lucky to get 5 or 6 run days a week.:)

Also happy my best friend, who was suppose to leave for awhile for work is not flying out for another few weeks:) Can't wait to hang out again!
