A Phun Video For The Weekend!

First off, I would just like to throw out a quick reminder that I'm riding the Philly Leg of the LIVESTRONG Challenge. As I’ve mentioned before, I will be riding in honor of my father who was taken by cancer on Fathers Day 1993, and as a part of Team Fat Cyclist: Fighting for Susan. My goal is to raise $2,500 for Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF) through participation in the 2009 Philadelphia leg of the Lance Armstrong Challenge. If you would like to help and donate to LAF on behalf of my fundraising effort, you can go to my secure LIVESTRONG Challenge Page HERE, and make a secure donation. You can also track how I am doing, and there is a link to donate on the right hand sidebar of this blog. I would be stoked if I could reach 25% of my goal ($2500) by the end of January (Saturday). I am currently at $430, and 17% of my goal! Some people who donated are family, others friends, some acquaintances, a few who I've only met in the blogosphere, and yet others I've never known except for the fact that they donated because they know someone that I know. Its awesome how generous people are! Thank you SO MUCH to those of you who have donated and in advance to those of you who will!

Now, for a touch of phun for your weekend. I am just curious about something here... How exactly do you figure out that you can do this stuff? Seriously, at what point in your life do you think, "Hmmmm, I wonder if I could drop a six foot ledge, land it on a handrail, bunny hop it off that onto a stack of pallets, and finish it off dropping off and riding out a wheelie!" I guess I'm just too old (cough) to keep up with these young whipper snappers. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video, my family and I got a kick out of it. Now, if only I could make sure the kids don't try to repeat it!
