Mike has been running every day, training his manly self to run in Omaha's 10K Corporate Cup on the 20th of this month. He is not a natural-born runner, nor has he ever aspired to be, but when a friend on the police department invited him to be on the team, he decided to give it a try. Then he asked me if I would post it to my blog, just in case there was anyone wanting to donate to the American Lung Association. His goal for his team is to raise $200.00, but he asked that I please stress that he doesn't want anyone to feel any obligation!
Just in case you feel moved to give, however, here is Mike's page… and here is what he had to say:
I have signed up as a participant in the American Lung Association's Corporate
Cup, scheduled for September 20th, 2009 at Civic Auditorium (17th and Capitol).
I have set a personal fundraising goal of $200.00 to help the Lung Association
in its fight to for cures, clean air and smoke-free kids, and I would appreciate
your support in helping me reach this goal.
Please visit my personal web
page and follow the instructions to make a secure online donation. I would
appreciate any contribution you decide to make. Thanks in advance for
Btw, I've been teasing him about this picture, bc it was taken when he was driving me around downtown, showing me various places I could perhaps take Sabrina's senior photos. So I told him to pose for me and I'd do a senior citizen shoot for him. 🙂
Good luck with your run, you studly husband, you! Look at the bright side: if you can't make it to the first mile mark, you can always join the kids for the 100-yard dash event.
