January 31 2015 blog post

Well it’s the last day of January.

I had the pleasure of going with Steve to the lab today and watching an experiment. I enjoyed it. He is trying to find a cure for Alzheimers.

Good miles today.

The weather was cooler than it has been lately and the sky was cloudy.

It felt good to me, reaching a milestone of 1000 miles on Charity Miles for the Alzheimers Association yesterday.

I visited a Fleet Feet running store today in Little Rock. Saw a couple of old friends.

This was a good day. I feel good. I feel strong. I miss some people pretty bad. I will work through that, but I will still miss them.

Well, I guess I better get some sleep.

Susan Harrell – my little cousin

Because of what I am doing trying to help in the fight against Alzheimers disease, I have read a lot about research scientist. One of the most prominent, was a man by the name of Jonas Salk. He was instrumental in finding the vaccine to stop polio. My little cousin had polio. They used the iron lung to try to help her. She was born on August 3rd 1951 and she lost her battle with polio on October the 10th 1954.

My mom said she can remember Susan like it was yesterday and that she was such a precious little girl.

Faulkner County

I had the pleasure today of meeting two deputies with the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Department. One of them was new on the job. They were very respectful to me. They thanked me for my service. I appreciate what they do and I told them so.

A milestone for me !!

Yesterday, I went over the 1000 mile mark using Charity Miles. All of them were for the Alzheimer’s Association.

That feels good to me. I am proud of it.

Stopping in life to make note of something that I have done that is important to me.
