…112 Days Until Race Day
This is a dangerous post but I feel it’s important to share with you because without YOU, this video doesn’t happen.
It’s dangerous because it could be construed as “hey, look at me” but that’s not why I post it.
It’s dangerous because it doesn’t highlight a pediatric cancer patient, survivor or angel and that is what the whole lead up to Ultramilano-Sanremo is about.
It’s dangerous because it features a politician, and even though there is nothing political at all about this video, the mere mention of politics or politicians sets people off.
Sometimes when you meet people, it’s hard to look past their title or what they do and see a real person. The first time I met Pete Olson I was in awe. Texas District 22 Congressman in the United States House of Representatives and former Naval Aviator (think Top Gun).
Now, he’s just Pete to me. We have nicknames for each other based on a mutual favorite movie. That’s classified information though. So classified, the Russian’s don’t even know our nicknames.
He is proud of what Snowdrop Foundation has become in HIS state and especially HIS district.
Earlier this week, The Distinguished Gentleman from Sugar Land, Texas took to the House Floor and gave a one minute speech about us and Ana, the young lady I dedicated my run to on Tuesday.
We KNOW that.
We MEAN that.
So, this is not bragging and saying “hey, look at me”. This is a celebration post because your belief in, your support of and your passion for Snowdrop Foundation is recognized in Washington, District of Columbia and officially sealed in the United States Congressional Record.
Thank you for being a champion of our cause and a true friend, Pete Olson.
The fight for our cancer kids has reached a higher level.
My run today was scheduled for 80-90 minutes at low 8:00’s pace.
What a run we had! I’ll post the photo of my watch in the comment section because Congressman Olson‘s message is WAY more important than my running numbers.
Who will you meet tomorrow?
