The Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado is raising money with an event called the Pikes Peak Challenge. Open to anyone. Don't be discouraged if you don't think you can actually hike the peak - it's 13 miles up to the 14,115 ft summit after all - because they have several inclusive options. One option is simply a 2-mile walk around town. They even have a 'Virtual Challenge' where you don't have to attend at all. Simply "Go for a hike whenever and wherever you can. Tell us about your hike on the Pikes Peak Challenge Facebook page. Add a photo too! Within two weeks after the event, we will mail you your shirt and finishers medal."

So, for a $25 entry fee I can get a t-shirt and medal for hiking to the mailbox. I love inclusivity. Anybody want to sponsor me?

2020 Pike Peak Challenge

(Really, I get their point. Those with a brain injury or other disability may not be able to hike up a mountain. But, when I saw the 'Virtual Challenge' option I couldn't help making fun of it. This is my safe place after all.)
My dad "hiked" Pikes Peak back in the late 70's when we were stationed at Ft Carson. I don't think he got a t-shirt for doing it.

Now that I'm a parent, I fail to see whats so hard about being involved in your kid's life or not beating them until you have scarred both their body and their soul. I think both of my parents were mentally ill.

We just spent our 6th Valentine's together. Mary made the same strawberry and chocolate chip pancakes we ate on our first Valentine's together.

Yesterday was our first Valentine’s Day together. I made reservations for our local Irish pub. It’s become kind of our place. I introduced her to Guinness a few weeks ago and she really likes it.

My dog Annie is feeling better (thanks for the prayers) and when she came in a few minutes ago, she forgot she was sick and starting throwing one of her toys around and playing. Then she remembered she felt like crap, dropped it and went and got on the bed. Vet says she should be healing up really well after a few more days of antibiotics.
