One thing you should know about me is that I'm not spontaneous. I'm a certified project manager. I like to budget for things and plan. So, when I heard the news, my immediate thought was, "We are SO going!" and this was not like me at all.

We were about to go down to one income. We owned a house. Going to France was a ridiculous decision.
It was the best trip I ever had.
We flew into Paris, took a train to Lourdes, rented a car, and drove across France. We stayed in 5 cities and 6 hotels. We saw a mountain stage, a start, a finish, the time trial, and the famous final loop at the Champs-Elysee.
I was so sad to come home. France was wonderful.
Husband went to grad school and everything was fine.
And a few months after I sold all of my stock, the stock was delisted.

So, thanks to Lance Armstrong, I had a wonderful trip and cashed out at the right time. As a result, I feel I owe him a karmic debt, and try to raise money or participate in Livestrong events when I can.
So, I've decided to run the Austin Half Marathon in Feb 2011 as my next event and raise money for the Livestrong Foundation! I'm obligated to raise $500, but I'm aiming for $1000! The Livestrong foundation provides support to guide people to through the cancer experience, bring them together to fight cancer, and work for a world in which our fight is no longer necessary. I hope that you'll support me while I train for my next event!
