That stands for Big Deal, It’s Friday. Why don’t I care? Because the startup I was working for didn’t start up quite fast enough and another guy and I got laid off on Wednesday. Yes, it is a bummer but I”ll be okay. The economy is good and I’m pretty sure I”ll be back in some saddle within a couple of months. On the plus side I have plenty of time to train now! I’ve swum over 8,000 yards this week (including my triathlon on Sunday).
Now on to more interesting things. Triboomer has a wonderful campaign going right now as he moves closer to the start line at IM Wisconsin.
“”500 Over 140.6″ Honor Roll is just a week old and is quickly closing in on its goal of collecting the names of 500 cancer fighters, survivors, and souls. The good news, if you can call it that, is the goal of 500 names will be met. The bad news is that the goal will be met.”
TriBoomer had dedicated himself to racing for cause with a goal of raising $10,000 this year. I’m not even sure how far along he is on that goal but he needs more names for 500 over 140.6 so please stop by and help him out.
**Important update – Boomer set a goal of $50,000 and exceeded it. Go Boomer Nation!
There are far worse things in life than to be unemployed. I am grateful for people like Triboomer who do so much to help solve real problems like cancer.
