Hurricane Relief

Okay Peeps, time to step up to the plate. We triathletes are a generous bunch and my friends doubly so, or you wouldn't be my friends.

Therefore, I'm hoping everyone who hasn't yet made a donation for Hurricane Katrina Relief will get online today and do so. It's quick, it's easy, and it hurts us a hell of a lot less than they're hurting right now. The fine people of the Gulf Coast will do the same for you some day.

So no matter how little you can spare, please give something!

This concludes our public service announcement.

Thanks for thinking of everyone out there.

This is bad, folks, really, really bad. There are at least a million people homeless and jobless for the next 2-3 months.

Right now, put everything you can in your car, and drive several hundred miles away. Now, live for 1-3 months on whatever is in your bank account and your car. If you're extremely lucky, you were able to drive to a relative's house that won't charge you rent and will let you sleep on the floor. The rest of you, well, how long can you live in hotels when your employer stops paying you in a couple of weeks because they've gone out of business?

Donate cash to the Red Cross, and if you have time, donate that as well.

Awesome! I'm so glad to see (but am not surprised) that you posted this, it's so easy to get caught up in our own thing, thanks for reaching out like this.
