American Heart Association 2013 Heart Walk in Birmingham, Alabama



I walked in the 2013 American Heart Association Heart Walk 5k last Saturday along with a hundred or so other St. Vincent’s associates. Our team raised $ 46,000 for the AHA!

When I signed up for this walk, there was a “walking in honor of” field for me to fill in. I quickly skipped over the field because I didn’t really have a person in mind. Actually, I never really pay attention to heart disease and the American Heart Association because I’ve never lost someone to heart disease and I don’t have a heart problem.

2013 Color Me Rad 5k in Hoover, AL


This past Saturday, a few friends and I participated in the Color Me Rad 5k in Hoover, AL. We all had a blast getting splattered, sprayed, and bombed with pink, purple, green, blue, yellow, etc colors. See the pics below for the visual evidence.

The course, surprisingly, had a few steep hills to climb. Regardless, my little triad of walkers, Emily, Cathy, and yours truely, climbed all the hills, took all weaving turns around the Hoover Metropolitan Stadium, and crossed the finish line. Fortunately, we were not rained on. The only two complaints that we had were, the course could have used one additional water stop, and there could have been more colors. There can always be more colors.

2013 Tour De Cure in Birmingham, AL


I rode in the 2013 Tour de Cure in Birmingham, Alabama yesterday, and had a blast. My day didn’t start out very well. I woke up tired for some reason, then I couldn’t find any coffee before the ride started. Then, to top it all off, I fell down when I first started to get on my bike. Fortunately this happened at my truck. Finally, when the bike fell, my rear derailleur was bumped, which caused it to rub on the rear wheel spokes. Not good. I was relieved to find the Cahaba Cycles SAG vehicle. The mechanic took care of me.
