Three Things Friday … the whole Three Things Thursday rolls off the tongue easier, but it’s not Thursday. So there’s that. Three quick things and then I’ll send you on your weekend (as if you’re waiting on me for that … but anyways) …
1. I started Operation Jack by running 61 marathons in 52 weeks in 2010. I can’t do that again (well I could, but it would require a corporate sponsorship I’m not going to get). But I still want to get people to run for the cause. So I have what I think is the easiest way to get you to do that: Raise $100 (yes, that’s one-hundred, that’s all) and I’ll cover a marathon entry for you that costs up to $100. Raise $125 for an entry up to $125 or $150 up to $150. The money you raise will go to the autism-related charity of your choice. Basically, I like to raise money to give it out and I want to use my 2014 budget to spread it around all over the place to the charities you pick. Oh, and I’m going to send you an Operation Jack shirt and medal to supplement what you get at your race.
It’s pretty easy, risk-free and it is as much of a no-brainer as it sounds. You could just “raise” the money with your own donation, which would basically be the same cost as your race entry anyways. Take a look at the details. If you’re interested, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
2. I haven’t talked about it much and I’ll probably write up a post very soon. But a lot of you know that we moved out here to Pennsylvania for a better school situation for Jack and he finally started school on September 3. Well three weeks in and it’s going very well. The school is great, the staff is great and Jack’s doing well. I’ve met his teacher and the assistant who’s dedicated to him and so far it confirms everything I thought about why we moved here.
3. Kansas City over the Eagles last night … one bad thing about the East Coast is weeknight football is super, super late now. But it’s gonna be a lot of fun being a Chiefs fan at work in Philly today!
That’s all … that’s three … have a good weekend![subscribe2]
