Thinking: “Aid”

Continuing the theme of “aid,” I’d love some inputs from you readers. Here’s your chance…tell me about some neat ideas you’ve either seen or participated in so we can get the word out! There are a lot of perspectives out there and I want to know what your thoughts are. It doesn’t have to be Africa or Afghanistan…it could be something local and relatively simple. I had a great discussion with my buddy Zane a few moths ago. We talked about how you don’t have to go on a big trip or move to another country just to help improve someone’s life. Opportunities to make a difference abound, even in our everyday lives. Or, maybe you think aid is a lot of bunk, that the best way to make a difference is a life well-lived…nothing is out of bounds and I want to know what you think. Take a sec, leave a comment, and let’s talk about it.


I know this is coming a bit late, but I wanted to let everyone know that I’m drafting up a race report from Saturday. I want to thank everyone who has supported Run For Something so far…your positivity helped me have a great day despite a lot of challenges. I finished in 2:48:08, 67th overall, and set a 10 minute, 13 second Personal Record. My official results areĀ here, and you can see pics here. I can honestly say that I’ve never been more proud of, or satisfied with another race. It was a great day, and as soon as I get my thoughts together I’ll get a complete report posted. Jen took some great pics from the sidelines, and I’m going to get those up as soon as possible as well.
