Trying to Keep Up

It’s been a pretty exhausting few weeks. For lack of better planning, a couple of big events have hit all at the same time. First, we’ve been working on the scholarship program. And at the same time, trying to spread the word about the Waeger Cup in October. Since it’s the first year...

Man’s Best Friend

I went on my first trip this week for work since Dan passed away. It was fine, other than my complete inability to focus in 3 hour meetings As usual, I picked up a book to read in the airport. It looked harmless enough… there was a dog on the cover, and it seemed like a light-hearted story about...

Maillot Jaune

I am sure that many of you were paying attention to the Tour de France these past few weeks. And probably hoping (maybe expecting) that Lance would pull it off. I know I was! First off, I have a huge amount of respect for the event. Having been known to ride 112 miles in a day myself, I can’t imagine...

First Birthday

It has been a pretty tough couple of weeks. I suppose that I am thinking back to last year at this time when we’d found out that Dan’s cancer has metastasized to his liver. It is hard to believe that this blog just celebrated it’s one year anniversary. More than everything else, the...

Pretty Cool

I forgot to mention… Nike & LAF/Livestrong are doing something really cool for the Tour de France. You can send an email message or text message with a tagline that will be spray painted on the road during the tour. They will even send you an image of it and let you know when & where the...

Man in the Mirror

Don’t worry- this isn’t the Michael Jackson tribute post! But since they’ve been playing his music everywhere, I’ve been hearing this song over and over. (For the record- my favorite MJ song is “PYT” and favorite J5 song is “Blame it on the Boogie”). I...

Tears of a Clown

Up until this week, I’ve really been enjoying the swim piece of my training. Five weeks ago, I could barely do a lap, and last week I was up to 22. However, it seems like this week everything hurts. My lower back, my nagging foot issues, my calves. I was chalking it up to the normal training lull…...

Wearing of the Green

There have been a couple requests for the meaning behind Waeger Will Win and the green bracelets. I had to do a little research, so if I don’t get it exactly right, it’s close enough! So, with a little help from Serge & Joe… “Waeger Will Win is pretty much a phrase coined...

Happy Birthday

Dear Dan- Happy Birthday! I miss you every day, but am so thankful for all the wonderful memories you left me. We crammed a lot of happiness into such a short time. As you said, “We had a good run.” Thank you so much for loving me and making me a better person. You showed me what it was...
