ACS and Thank Yous!

Raised $3,246.35 dollars. That is awesome and incredible! I spent many mundane hours running, biking and swimming thinking of the great people who donate to the cause. Truly – Thank you! During the race, I didn’t set up […]

Zero point Zero Stickers Everywhere

I’ve been collecting all pictures of the 0.0 stickers people have sent me/tweeted me/or I’ve taken.  If you have one, take of a photo of it and send it to me.  Get creative.  I’ll add them to the collection.

This year in order to reach our goal, a supporter of the program, Andy G, has decided to get involved and help out. He has created “Ironman Wine”. These are thank you bottles of wine which will be given out to donors who donate $100.00 or more and are not involved in the Corporate Sponsor […]

Al’s Black Tie, Summer Kickoff, Endurance Motivation, Non-Party Spectacular for ACS and a chance to win $53,000!

For most people, the start of summer not only identifies good times ahead, but also being over booked. I’m going to save you the guilt of skipping a party, keep your calendar as free as possible and give you a chance to win $53,000, by NOT inviting you to a black […]

The LotterTree for IMWI 2013

Some Facts about the LotterTree: It’s supposed to be like a Christmas tree, but with lottery tickets.

Here’s the story – I went to work on Friday 8/12/11 and began searching for a triathlon to do – nothing serious, just wanted something to work for – I ran 16 […]
