$2,849

I dropped off a couple of big fat checks with the local Alzheimer’s Association this morning. One was for $1,849, the other for $500, which will have a matching contribution from Microsoft for another $500, making a grand total of $2,849!!!!

Ho. Lee. CRAP!

Many many many thanks to all the friends, co-workers, and strangers who donated, and a special shout-out to Alida, who raised a very large portion of the total by promising to run a bunch of races in ridiculous fabulous outfits (the registration fees alone will total over $200). Rockstar. She also captured the donation magic below:

 

Now I just have to complete a full freaking Ironman, 11 days from now. No big deal.

Here’s to you, grandpa!
