Getting through it

Well, another few weeks closer to the races. I had a great ride yesterday with a fe folks from Team Magellan. We ended up riding in perfect temperature but pretty hefty winds. Good thing was that we had 8 in our group and we all stuck together the entire time so that made the winds a little more manageable.

Even though I have no time to even breathe these next few weeks between work, training, and family, I am going to try to spread the word about Aplastic Anemia by sending out some press releases.

First I have to learn/read up on how to write a press release that will be some attention, then I need to somehow figure out where to get the names/numbers of the media contacts. So if I end up managing to find time to do that, I think it will help raise awareness.

I'm getting beaten up pretty good with all this training and the crazy time management involved in it, but hopefully it'll be worth it and some nice funds will be raised for Aplastic Anemia Foundation.

Oh, here's a family photo...figured it was time to post one. :)

Please help make a difference -

Great family photo!!

Here's a link to the site I used to help me write and release press releases:

Please email us (endurancesportsbar -at-gmail-dot-com) the press release too when you write it as we can just glean info from it for our feature on you.

And if you're interested in learning more about my past fundraising effort, go to It was my first-ever fundraising effort but I learned a lot. Maybe something there can help you with yours.
