A hectic, short week has made it difficult to keep to the training regime, but I am getting in a workout where I can, usually in bits and pieces. It is quite surprising how much I miss the exercise ... and eating healthy, slow food. I'm planning on a big hike at the Forks of the Credit on Saturday and a whole lot of cooking to get me through the next week.
The first week of fundraising has gone great. More than $1,000 has already come in and a lot of people have made pledges. It is really encouraging. So please keep those donations coming in.
A number of people who have contributed have felt the need to apologize for not being able to contribute more. I would just like to remind people that the cost of providing a person with clean water, for life, in Africa is just $25. That, in turn, translates into better health, an education and a chance for a better life. So please keep in mind that your donation, no matter how small, makes a real difference to someone's life. Feel good about that! Thank you for your continuing support.
