Lovin' the Show Me State
I had a terrific time speaking at CF Center Education Day in Missouri. I was the keynote speaker at the University of Missouri in Columbia (A place my Dawgs will be visiting in September for Missouri's first SEC home game).
The people were so nice. Special thanks to Erin (picture attached), Kecia, Natalie and Dr. Acton (picture attached). There were many more wonderful people. I spoke for an hour to a few hundred people (including several people with CF) about my life with CF and tried to inspire the group. I wore a mask while I spoke to promote safety and I was happy that all of the patients also wore their masks. Per Kecia, it was the best CF Day they've had since she's been there and many people were repeating things I said from my speech. I'm happy that my speech made a positive impact on people.
The funny part was they heard about fondness for gummy bears during my speech so attached was my award after speaking.
I made several contacts while I was there and I think I might have some more speeches coming up after Virginia and Ireland over the next few months.
Today I completed Day 53 of P90X. I can't believe that I only have 37 days to go. I recently saw that they have come up with P90X 2 or something like that. I'm not even thinking about that right now. I will say I feel really strong. I ran for 17 minutes on the treadmill, 15 minutes in place before that and did my hour of P90X all this morning and YES I still plan to do a light workout at lunch. If I'm going to preach about working hard in the gym when I give speeches, then it is up to me to practice what I preach.
I hope that everyone is well.
