Hi all I have been talking to Richard Brodsky again about his marathon in New York. Well he runs the World's Aid's Marathon in New York and in Kenya Africa. Well he would like to spread the word that people that are HIV Postive can still have healthy lives.
Anyway he would like me to have one here in Green Bay Wi. I am not sure where to go with this. I would love to stand by the finish line and go with it. I would love to be the one handing out the first prize for the first person hitting the finish line. But where to start. We have another Marathon here in Green Bay called the Bellin Run.
Where to start and how to go about it?? Any suggestions would be great really. Or if any one thinks this a good idea. The only thing I can do is try right but I am at a loss of where to start. I have talked to one person and that is the dr that Ruth was staying with while she was here and he thinks its a great idea.
I was hoping to be able to maybe contact the Hospital here or the Brown County Health Department and find out how many AIDs cases come through in a year. I dont want names or addresses but I just want people to know that they can still have a healthy life with doing what they enjoy.
Like I have said before Richard has been HIV Postive for like 8 years or so now. I dont remember exactly. But he takes his meds and runs and does marathon's with his wife Jodi.
I might be taking on more than I can chew but I am hoping I can think of something up here. I know the Bellin Run is like 26 miles and I dont know if any one would be willing to run more than that for a run like this one. How and who do I talk to about Sponsors with a run like this?? How do I promote this run?? I am at a loss really.
I have been told to have it in Chicago IL but the only problem is that I dont live in Chicago.. I live here in Green Bay.
Ok enough on the run for now. I will keep my thoughts open though to it. I am not sure if we can do it. I have run this past Jeff and he thinks its a great idea but he's like me where to start and how to start..
But now onto X-mas I have found a great gift for Brianna. I e-mailed the site to my mom because she has an ebay account also. Its one of those Leap Frog reading books. I am not sure if that will help her or not but I am going to try. Grizzly Mama has give me a link to but of course I just cant right now. Just looking for idea's to make Bri want to enjoy reading and to want to learn. I think I am going about it the wrong way.
Kora on the other hand is struggling with math. I mean simple adding and subtracting and I am at a loss with her. I am really at a loss with what to get them this year. Any ideas for a couple on a budget. I have a couple of idea's but not sure yet. I am looking at these coloring pads. They are like 7.99 a piece at Wal Mart.. They are something under the tree. I want to get more Garland anyway this year. I know it was hard to keep up with Snowie last year. I am hoping she is more relaxed this year since she is a year older..
Anyway these are my thoughts for today. I am struggling to finish a book. I have about like 200 pages left and I want to find out what happens but I also think it could have been told in another way. I am currently reading Once An Eagle by Anton Myers. I have my review up because I didnt want to give the end away. Its a 1200 page book.
I have some stuff at Tweety's Crafting Gallery. Some repeat stuff but most are new. I listed them at ebay but no one bought them. My cat in the hat set has went though. I was hoping to make another set but with blue and white. I think that would be awsome. What does everyone think of that?? Anyway I have to run for now. Thanks for your opinions in this post and others that are to come and those that you have helped me in the past..
Talk to you all soon.. I made rounds today and I will be back around in the next day or so..
Its about me and my family. Mainly me and the girls. I may twitter or tweet alot but its mostly thoughts and going ons here at home and thoughts about what we might be doing on weekend or our adventures. Sit down and Enjoy what you are reading.
