Achievement

The Hundred Hole Hike undoubtedly exceeded expectations as one of my most rewarding athletic pursuits. 109 holes. 527 strokes. 33 miles. But the intent is clearly greater.

Most importantly: My efforts helped raise more than $4,500 for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Many thanks to all my supporters in making it a success. I'm looking forward to raise the bar in 2013.
