Milestone June 11 2018 Special Olympics

I enjoy reaching special places such as the 500th mile mark for the Special Olympics. The actual number after todays miles is 514. It feels good and I appreciate the Charity Miles folks for their application. The app makes it easy.

Resting on my laurels for a few minutes.

They can see me now . . .

The beautiful shirt I purchased from the Special Olympics was on my back for the first time out on Highway 80 today.

The ear buds were put away so folks that may consider stopping, feel more comfort.

In 3 miles I witnessed 3 vehicles pulling over. We chatted, good stuff. Still no stroller, hoping to add that soon, when the signs arrive for it.

Several more shirts are on order and from this day forth that’s what I will wear out there.

As mentioned yesterday, the donations have been a big surprise, a good surprise.
