July 1, 2013 will be one of those days that I will never forget. I arrived at Medinah at 4:55am, only to see another car in the lot.

T minus 6 days

I remember a few weeks ago when I decided that I needed to shape up for this thing. I remember how I had to start taking the walk seriously and start focusing on getting ready.

Medinah Comes Up Big Again!

So, John Christopher and Jason Kinander, two good friends from Medinah graciously offered to send out my hundred hole hike donation request to their distribution list.


It dawned on me last night....we're getting close to this thing. It also dawned on me....I'm really going to have to walk a long long way. For the first time, some doubt set in.

The First Push

So I sent out my one and only fundraising e-mail yesterday. Wow! The response was awesome.

The Beginning

So, the fundraising has begun. For years I have dutifully donated to cause after cause on behalf of friends, family and clients.
