Vets Week & Paint Nite!

So my apologies for the lack of updates. Jan 9th-13th I was up at Mount Sunapee for my favorite week of the year, the New England Winter Sports Clinic for Veterans with Disabilities.  This year was particularly special as it was the 20th anniversary.  For me, it was my 12th clinic.  Here are some pics from this very special week!

So while the week didn’t lend itself to much running, it’s honestly one of the best weeks of my year and it’s an easy “sacrifice” of miles.  That said, upon getting home, I was hit HARD (as in over 5 days down for the count) with one of the worst colds in my life.  Horrible timing, as I had my Paint Nite event fundraiser at Muse Paint bar .  I got so much support for this, so I had to rally and it ended up being a really great time and over $300 raised for Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital!

I’m happy to report, that I am FINALLY feeling better. Still some lingering congestion and a less than sexy cough, but it could be worse (oh don’t I know!)  Looking forward to getting in those miles.  Doesn’t hurt that I got this in the mail recently, as well!

As always, please consider donating here to support my efforts as part of the Race for Rehab team for Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital and the 2017 Boston Marathon!
