March was a much more successful month! I have now created the “trifecta dream team of swimming recovery”; in other words, how to keep an aging body moving!! I have my chiropractor, my massage therapist, and I have added an acupuncturist, who are helping to keep the muscles nimble and as free from pain as possible! YIPEE!! Thank goodness for “bundled payments”!
Fortunately, it was a healthy month for me and mine, and I was able to swim on a mostly regular basis. I made up a little bit of mileage this month, logging 27.4 miles!! There was a “March Madness” challenge at the gym, so that kept me motivated! I would have thought I would have done a bit more, but oh well.
The other highlights of the month were that we got media coverage! I reached out to the 4 major tv stations in Milwaukee and I was contacted by 2 of them, Channel 6 (Fox) and Channel 4 (WTMJ). I am THRILLED to have the media coverage, IF it brings in more donations. When the first story broke, over 70 people “liked” it on Facebook. If each person who liked the story would contribute $25, that alone would raise over $1700. I know that most people can afford $25. I wish they understood the impact of their actions vs inertia.
April will be challenging. My daughter is moving into her first home and I will be helping her get settled. The pool will be closed for a week. Lord, help me stay focused and provide me with WATER!!
