Day 67: South Lake Tahoe / Thanks Eliza!
Ok so, today was a completely unintentional zero day. Bojangles and I
were supposed to head out after lunch with crowdog, but ended up
staying. No biggy. We leave at 6 am tomorrow.
I could talk about tahoe, or the snow, or how badly I miss people from
home...but I'm not going to. Instead I'm going to talk about
something very cool a friend of mine did. Eliza Murphy, someone I met
through ultrarunning and my blog, did something very kind with respect
to my pct hike. I've talked before about my charity website. Part of
the reason I'm out here trudging through snow is to raise money for
the American heart association, in memory of my late father. First
off, eliza was kind enough to put a huge banner on her "ultrarunning
guy" comic blog site for me. I was extremely grateful for this.
Well, it gets better. I received an email from her today saying that
she registered the domain name WWW.HIKE4DAD.COM to my charity site!
How awesome is that?! Now I can give people a simple site to
remember, and hopefully get the word out there a little better.
So thank you eliza, and I am forever grateful for your gifts. The
world needs more people like you.
So...check it out...
