I participated in the Maryland Warrior Dash, a three mile cross-country race with obstacles, including swinging tires, a rope lader, barbed wire, a wet slide, fire, and yes, a mud pit.
|I told friends that if they donated money to Relay for Life, I would wear whatever they wanted on a t-shirt.|
|This says, "Tiger Blood Fueled Rapture Survivalist."|
|I ran as much as I could, although I was often knee-deep in mud.|
|Paul said I should have been swimming in it. Mud pit fail.|
|This is water, not beer. It was 9:30 in the AM. I waited until 10.|
Another thing I did this weekend was become a member of the National Marrow Donor Program. A former co-worker of mine is fighting Leukemia, and he needs a bone marrow transfusion. His family members are sadly, not matches.
I had the four corners of my mouth swabbed, and I am now a member of the registry. My records are available for anybody needing a bone marrow transplant until I am 61 years old. I may be called tomorrow. I may be called in five years. I might never be called.
But if I am? It will make all the difference in the world. Please consider joining the Be The Match registry. It's free, it's quick, and it can create many more birthdays for some lovely people.
So, how was your weekend?
