Two days ago I was feeling sorry for myself. A New Year's Eve day cross-country ski injury had left me with a broken bone in my thumb and a torn ligament. I had planned to ski three long distance ski races this Winter (25 to 52 kilometers) to finish raising the money for a dorm my wife Molly and I are trying to build in the mountains of southern China near Vietnam (LingYun).
Instead I was taught a lesson in humility when by chance yesterday photographs of the dorm's construction process arrived . I thought ... who cares how fast I ski ... one armed cross-country skiing will still get me to the finish line. Thus, broken bones, torn ligaments and all ... please sponsor me in my Kilometers for Kids Project. Help me and the dorm reach the finish line! The races will take place in February ... and hopefully we can achieve our fund raising goal by March 1st!
