Shameless plug for a good cause...

Hey everyone,

I figured that I'd put this here rather than blast out status updates.  

I've decided to do something that I haven't done before. That's been a theme of mine for the last several years.  Life is way too short to spend it wanting.  It's what prompted me to begin practicing martial arts and brew beer.  It's also why I'm posting this.

You see, I've lost 3, close family members to cancer or complications as a result of it.  My grandmother was in the late 90's, but my father and grandfather were in 2008 and 2010 respectively.  For them, I've decided to participate with a couple of my co-workers in the Jimmy Fund Walk this year.  The Jimmy Fund supports a local, children's cancer hospital that does amazing work.  

I'll be walking 26.2 miles along the Boston Marathon route on September 8, 2013.  If you're interested and would like to support my walk (and cancer research and a children's cancer treatment center), click on this link: 

and donate, if you like.

I appreciate all support in any way that you choose to give it.  



p.s.  I'll be live-tweeting, Facebook updating throughout the entire thing.  I'm sure I'll be a wreck but I have 2 great partners to walk with.
