A Fallen Brother

The sport of triathlon always gets my writing juices flowing. For different reasons, so does the topic of death and losing a loved one. So I can’t quite understand why when those two subjects combine as one that I am practically at a loss for words. Perhaps it’s not that I am at a loss for words, maybe I just can’t seem to organize any of the words that are colliding in my head into an intelligent thought.

2010 LLS Man of the Year

Well The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Man & Woman of the Year Grand Finale was a success and will leave a very lasting impression on me. I wasn’t exactly sure how I stood in terms of fundraising against my “competition”. But in all honesty, I was not too concerned because I knew my team ran a pretty successful campaign and did pretty well with fundraising. If my “pretty successful campaign” came in second or third, then that’s even better because that just compounds the total dollars going to the general good and benefit of the cause and the mission.
