I've had a tremendous amount of fun writing the books and one of the promises I made was that I would share some of the proceeds.
It makes sense to do it quarterly, at least from an accounting standpoint. I closed out the books last night and wrote the first check. Since I wrote the books and am donating the money, I get to be the decider. I'm pushy that way . . .
I wrote the check for the Clarkston Bantams. It's not as much as I would like, but it's is a start. Ideally, I'd write a dozen checks that are ten times bigger.
We're going to have to sell a lot more books to do that.
For those not in our region, the coach at Clarkston, Brian Denton, bends over backwards to help out all the local teams with meets, lending flags, timers, putting up the results. The rest of the time, he's coaching some great kids.
If you bought Finishing Kick or Trail of Second Chances, you've contributed to the Bantam squad. I want you to know just how much I appreciate it.
Please consider referring the books to your friends and running buddies. And I could always use more reviews on Amazon if you have a few minutes and you'd like to share.
I'm hoping that the next quarter sees me writing more than one check.
Run gently, friends!
PS. Family asked about contributing to the Asotin squad, our home town team. I donate to them annually all ready and plan to do so again and again, as long as I am able. Poor coach Gundy is pretty well stuck with me but he's a great guy and takes it in stride.
