Tomorrow is the day!

I'm usually a pretty laid-back guy (unless you ask my wife), but I gotta tell you....I am soooooo nervous about tomorrow. It's not just the run, it's running with Krissy. I can't wait!
Krissy and her parents just left here for the night, and we'll meet up with them EARLY tomorrow. The stroller is decorated with all of the ribbons, the wheels are tuned up and ready, and I'm headed for some before bed stretching. Just can't wait to see how things pan out tomorrow. It will be interesting for sure!
Thank you so much to all of you who helped us with this fundraiser. We didn't quite get to our goal, but we were able to raise more than I was expecting in a fairly short time period.
If you are interested in contributing and haven't had a chance, you can still log onto crowdrise and make a donation. All funds are going to be split between A Butterfly's Touch and SOFT.

Krissy is going to rock this tomorrow....and I'm not about to let her down!

4 days to go...getting nervous!

Had a great flight with the family Monday night, arriving safely at SeaTac Airport late in the evening. Tuesday, got to go up and see Terre and Krissy again. She's gotten so much bigger than I remember! We loved being able to see her up in her walker. We were able to get her in the running stroller to check for fitment and comfort. She certainly seemed to enjoy it...even took a short walk together. She has such an amazing smile! :-)
Today, got some errands run for the upcoming fundraiser and got to spend some more time with family and friends. Tomorrow...up to see Krissy again for a short run. Then, taking the stroller to the bicycle shop for a quick tune-up so everything is ready to go for Sunday.
I'm hoping all goes well for Sunday. It sounds like the weather might just cooperate. I'm just hoping that I'm not so slow that Krissy is completely bored crazy. Here's to being nervous :)

We're still taking names to add to ribbons on Krissy's running stroller for the half marathon.

Also, all money raised at is being donated to S.O.F.T (Support Organization for Trisomy disorders) and A Butterfly's Touch (a non-profit providing infant loss support).
