25 days to go

Wilkerson Here:  Really big email went out today for the first time reminding everyone of the days left till the race and that we are here again this year.  This is the time when most everyone started to pledge last year.  I think we probably went over $10,000 today.  If you are just tapping into our site, thanks for checking it out.  I would encourage you to go back to the site and look around.  Read about us and about Haiti.  We are taking something we just do and we are trying to turn it into something that has meaning beyond ourselves.  Our hope is that you will find that encouraging and will want to be a part.  My daughter reminded me of the Steve Martin book, “How to be a millionaire”  His opening line is first, get a million dollars.  How to use your passion, first get some passion.  That is what we have for hundreds of thousands of Haitians in the northwest region of the country.  Working to get them clean water and purge the cholera, food and nutrition coupled with medical help so they are in a position to work and take care of their families.  NWHCM is dedicated to helping the Haitian people help themselves.  It is not just a handout.  Your contributions will enable them to be able to take care of each other.  The future has opportunities such as hydroponics, cow and chicken projects.  Micro businesses.  Good to be a part of helping people help people help themselves.  Thanks for fueling the passion. 

Training:  My first triathlon this Saturday.  Swimming tonight.  20 laps without the pull buoy.  Hard to do but can’t use one in the race.  Then a 3 mile run.  Actually felt better than I expected.  Cold temperature and possible rain this Saturday.  What happened to the great weather we had this past weekend?  O well, bad weather will probably help me and hurt the real competitors.  Slow is slow no matter the weather.  Good news is I have dropped a few pounds.  Was wanting to go down about 7 from where I was in January and I am about there.  Funny thing is the more you train, the more you eat.  Fuel is necessary.  When you can look at your food as fuel and not as satisfaction, it is easier to not over eat.  See you tomorrow.
