April Training and Event Update
Its been a busy month getting ready. Under 70 days to go - 67 to be exact! I have been training in the Pacific Northwest, mostly on weekends with Matt, Kari Pettibone, Dorothy Sager and other guest riders. Today was the 16th training ride in the last 8 weekends. During the week, I do spin classes M-W-F at 630 am before work. The weather is getting better, so I will be getting outdoors more often. We are excited about the events coming up this month. First, we are having a Fundraiser in Seattle on April 14th. The entire Team Jesse Leadership Team will be in town for this event. See our top story at www.teamjesse.org for details. Following this, we have partnered with the Washington Stealth National Lacrosse League team and will be doing a military appreciation night on April 16th at Comcast Arena in Everett, WA. Gametime is 7:30 pm. Visit www.stealthlax.com for details.
Today was a special day for me. I spent the afternoon with Sonya Williams, Jesse's wife. She gave me Jesse's military dogtags that he last wore. I will now wear them for The Ride and he will watch over us. Below is a picture of us on my deck at home on Mercer Island this afternoon.
