    I hope this is ok to post here. I see Steve did last year. Steve, are you and your wife running this year? I am running. It will be my first run ever. It is more meaningful to me as last year I lost my ability to walk in Jan. The rest of the year was spent relearning to walk, physical therapy, doctor visits, using a walker, etc.

    I still struggle to walk some days, but I'm going to do this. In fact my nurse says she will walk with me. I have a nurse because I get infusions every 3 weeks for 2 days at about 6 hours each to control my disease. She comes to my home to do them.

    So, who else will be there this year? I'm excited. Just hope it isn't too hot. I'm posting my fundraising link below just in case you feel led to give.

    That's awesome! Best of luck to you.

    Unfortunately, we will not be running this year. The planets aligned just right last year to have us be in Orlando for a conference at the time of the race. No such luck this year. We will be volunteering at the village on Tuesday, though. We leave for Florida tomorrow to attend the DIS 10th anniversary Mega Meet! So we'll be supporting GKTW in a few different ways.

    Thanks Steve. I might do some volunteering at GKTW in other ways also. I live about an hour away. Excited to see if someone else wants to walk with me.
