Training Update ... Preparing for the Ultimate Hike ...
March 31: Glorious 14 miles to Rainbow Falls. Stamina excellent; knees a little wobbly by the end. They tell us the Foothills Hike trail is a little less challenging, just much l-o-n-g-e-r, so I feel fairly confident.
February 17/18: Drizzly 9.4-mile hike to Raven Cliff Falls + 28 hilly miles cycling to Saluda NC. Training hard, but need your help to qualify for the Foothills Ultimate Hike! Won't you please donate to CureSearch for Children's Cancer?

Ultimate blessings: Family, Friends, Serenity, Health.
Ultimate bliss: A long walk in the woods.
Ultimate Foothills Hike: A small challenge for myself, and a big chance to help others less fortunate.
This Spring, I’ll be participating in the Ultimate Foothills Hike, to raise funds for CureSearch for Children's Cancer.
Every day in the US, 43 families learn that their child has cancer; 5 of those children do not survive. This is a challenge I don't know how I would bear, and which no parent should face! CureSearch for Children's Cancer is a national non-profit foundation whose mission is to fund and support targeted and innovative children's cancer research, and provide information resources about children's cancer for families and their support systems.
I’m looking forward to -- and training hard for -- 28 blissful miles on South Carolina’s Foothills Trail. As for the fundraising part, please join me on the long road ahead. Wish me luck and donate generously, please!
