Hi, folks. I've registered to race in the 2011 Nautica New York City Triathlon on behalf of The Catalog for Giving (http://www.catalogforgiving.org/). I chose to do this for myself and my family as something life-affirming; I cherish every healthy moment I have with Sarah and Max. Raising money for the kids is a way of helping the neighbors. I'm very excited about this undertaking and hope you can share that spirit. I'll do the swimming, biking and running. A community of giving is larger than any one of us and can contribute to replacing the cycle of poverty with a path to happiness and fulfillment. Be a part of the community. Go team!
