Well, I did it. I finished the St Jude Half Marathon. I even beat my target time. Sorry if that sounds prideful; it was all for the kids. Now it’s your turn. If you made a pledge to donate based on my satisfactory finish, now is the time to follow-through. Here is the info again, in case you missed it the fist time.
A big thanks to those of you who have already donated!
am participating in finished the St. Jude Memphis Half-Marathon to support the kids of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. As a St. Jude Hero, I have a personal goal to raise $150 for the kids of St. Jude.
Will you help me support St. Jude by donating today?
How your donation helps:
- Thanks to donors like you, no family ever receives a bill from St. Jude for anything, including treatment, travel, housing and food.

In other news, I’ll be back at the woodwork shop in Memphis again this Saturday and Monday night. Saturday is a free demo on using hand planes, and Monday night is the hand plane basics class. Check out their website for details. Why not take a break from your Christmas shopping and drop by for some festive woodworking. Reportedly they have a new fancy workbench, so it may be worth coming just to check it out.
