Here we are with 9 more days until the end of the year and I find myself $2,000 away from going to Kona! It has frozen me in my tracks because I just can’t believe it. People I have been working with for almost a year are coming through with donations to the Ironman Foundation. I am so thankful and grateful they feel the donation is for a worthy cause. I certainly do.
Last night my plan was to sit down and write emails to 20 people as I can’t stop now, right. This last $2,000 may be the hardest. Russ and I decided to grab something to eat out because I refused another night of leftovers. We went to a nice restaurant and sat down in the bar for some food and wine. I joked that we should go to a movie instead (heck it was practically next door). As he looked at the menu, he glanced up and said “want to?” Yes! We got up and walked to the movie, picked one and walked in right when it was starting. We saw Manchester by the Sea, sad but good. So, as I sit here early in the morning trying to get some things done I have to say it was worth it. Good time just holding Russ’ hand watching a movie (with a glass of wine and a brat)!
Thank you for those that follow me and have made a donation. I’m so close and just can’t believe it!
