ALS Ice bucket challenge

Goofy Training
Week Two
Days one and two

Y’all. I know it’s August in Texas and all, but it is HOT. I mean it’s like Africa hot. Tarzan couldn’t take this kind of hot. (Biloxi Blues? Anyone?) So, 2 miles Monday, 4 miles yesterday, 2 miles today but I may return to the dreadmill rather than brave any more of this Texas heat and humidity. We’ll see.

Last night after our group run Caitlin and I helped Karen participate in the ice bucket challenge by dumping the leftover ice water we brought for the runners on her head. Little did I know she was planning to challenge me to take it as well.

I’m not going to dump a bucket of water on my head; it seems to me this challenge is getting played out, and nobody really wants to see that. I will make a charitable donation to ALS in honor of my friend Steve. I won’t ask three other people to dump water on their head and/or give to ALS either. I will ask all of you, if you’re able, to make a donation to a charity that means something to you. Sure, I’d love it if you want to donate to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, but any reputable charity is a good choice. You don’t have to tell me or Facebook about it either. Just help out where you can, okay? And have a great day – I’m going to be grateful today for how lucky we are to have enough clean water to go around dumping it on our heads.
